The Anchorage-Wheaton Homestead

A Vintage Beauty in a Parklike Setting


The Anchorage-Wheaton homestead was built in 1848 as a mirror image, twin home on historic Ye Greate St (est. 1684). This unique three and a half story 3800 sq ft home sits on nearly an acre of land. The lovely period moldings, high ceilings, wide plank floors, working wood burning fireplace and dual front and rear staircases will transport you to another time.

This stately 18 room house includes 4 bedrooms and 3 1/2 baths, formal parlor, family room, oversized dining room, eat-in kitchen, a weaving studio, art studio, music room, gym, office, etc... The professionally designed gardens full of unique, low maintenance perennials, shrubs and trees will provide hours of relaxation and joy as you stroll along the winding paths. There are also 2 open air porches and a screened sunroom that provide ample space to enjoy those lazy summer days.

At the rear of the property there is an oversized 2 car garage with a generously sized workshop/storage shed and a small working greenhouse. While there is work to be done, the possibilities of this distinctive home are endless, including the option of conversion to a duplex.

Please note that the property taxes were re-assessed in December 2023, and have been lowered from $9564 down to $8049 or $7799 with senior discount.

With renewed care and attention this homestead will continue its long legacy as one of the grand homes lining Ye Greate St in historic Greenwich. This is an Estate Sale and will be sold AS-IS. Buyer will be responsible for any and all repairs.
