Direct VILLAGE WATERFRONT with access to Hamburg Cove & the CT River. The David Brockway house (C. 1808) sits on the banks of the Eight Mile River in Hamburg Village*. It is located in the historic “Reed’s Landing”, a collection of houses dating from the 18th and 19th Centuries and home to merchants and artists. The Eight Mile River has been designated a “Wild and Scenic River” running through miles of protected forest in the Town of Lyme. The main house dates from the early 19th C. and is a classic Center Chimney. Beamed ceilings and rich wood floors give the home a warmth. Over the years, additions and renovations have been made to bring the house into the modern world without compromising the historic ambience. In 2012, a major addition was added to provide two new bedrooms, each with private baths. The Kitchen was remodeled in 2009 to provide additional storage and new flooring. The second level boasts a sitting room with fireplace. The attic area is partially finished with offices. In addition to the main house, the property has a separate two-car garage/barn with a workshop heated by a woodstove and an upstairs billiard room, also with a wood-burning heater. An artist’s studio, in a separate building renovated in 2001, has a small sleeping loft and cabinetry. In 2018, the owners constructed a small dock on the river to provide access by small boat to Hamburg Cove and the Connecticut River. This is a must-visit waterfront home with many upgrades in a lovely setting.
