Listing No. 30692

1907 Late Victorian
West Hartford, CT

West End Charm in West Hartford

Across the street from the pedestrian entrance to Elizabeth Park, recognized as America's first public rose garden, this gracious home is ready for the next chapter in its history.

A very desirable house in the best locality, as described in a 1907 advertisement, the home was originally owned by the Giddings family. Major Howard A. Giddings was a VP of Travelers Insurance and a veteran of the Spanish American War. He and his wife Florence raised their seven children in the house, whose height measurements can be seen on a portion of the wall in a closet.

Step up to the inviting front steps and enter, noticing the high ceilings, oversized windows with curved muntin details, original hardwood floors, and beautiful moldings. French doors, bay windows, and pocket doors are highlights of the living and dining spaces.

Entertaining will be a breeze as your guests move effortlessly from the dining space out to the veranda and patio made from reclaimed stone from Hartford sidewalks.

Updated by the current owner, the kitchen marries vintage charm with modern cabinetry and stainless steel appliances.

The main staircase leads to a light-filled landing that is the perfect spot for curling up with a book.

The third floor is the bonus space we all need right now and the newer two-car garage has a large, light-filled loft that could be used in a myriad of ways.

Built-to-last, this home is ready for its next owners to customize it to their taste!
