NEW PRICE $625,000!!! Spectacular circa 1835 Greek Revival masterpiece tucked peacefully among gorgeous grounds of flowering plantings, towering maples, and mature groves sited on historical 'Old' Main Street and just a stone's throw away from the Connecticut River. The home's magnificence is the sum of classical elements including striking 2-story Doric fluted columns, the peak of a strong pediment and gable, dramatic symmetry, and sprawling front portico. Grandeur and grace exude while fused with contemporary conveniences and a touch of modern charm.

Walk into an era of nearly bygone elegance with impressive interiors that are unpretentiously majestic. A beautiful center hall staircase, richly colored and evocatively knotted wide-plank hardwood floors, elevated ceilings, original mantles, and outstanding architectural details all beckon one to linger. Open layouts of graceful proportions convey both sophistication and repose. Spectacular light generously pours into a front salon just off the foyer that has lovingly welcomed family and friends for generations. The 11-foot ceilings naturally flow through to an airy and bright second living room, well balanced with one of four gorgeous period fireplaces and bold, multifaceted crown and trim moldings. Tall French doors open to a handsome study with a full library wall of built-in bookcases. A grand dining room, elaborately dressed with a fireplace and built-ins, is a romantic setting for intimate dinners or for hosting more elaborate galas.

The updated kitchen is an absolute showstopper, exuding warmth in a high-end farmhouse feel. A large central island serves as the room's hub with stunning granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, pantry, and delightful eat-in dining area. Cooking, conversations, and coziness abound with an adjacent sitting area of graceful dimensions, exposed wood beams, and warmed with a masonry fireplace. Meander out the side French door into a meticulously designed private patio rimmed with perennial plantings and tranquil water features. A separate family room, completely remodeled with a wall of windows to the front and French doors opening to the back, radiant heat stone tile floors, and original beamed ceilings make for homey movie nights in. A large laundry room, finished with cabinets and countertops, and a fully updated half bathroom complete the idyllic main level.

The stately historicism extends throughout an upper level of 5/6 bedrooms, serviced by two updated full bathrooms. Extraordinary design, dreamy decor, and splendid details accentuate this ultimate canvas while sustaining the essential fabric of the home. Effusive light radiates throughout every room, highlighting the patina of old and polish of new. Highly versatile floor plan accommodates family and guests alike with an ideal configuration for a spacious primary suite with bedroom, separate sitting room, and ensuite bathroom with radiant heated floors. Other bright and cheery bedrooms offer flexible space as large closets and dressing areas which can be easily repurposed back to slumberous accommodations. Another fully updated bathroom is well equipped with a large walk-in glass shower, vanity, and linen closet. A second back staircase conveniently leads to the common living areas in the center of the main level. The enormous walk-up attic provides loads of storage with an additional large project or workshop room for enthusiasts of all kinds. An open, full basement, with interior ingress, has ample headspace to easily access mechanicals and for even more storage.

Midsummer nights and days are a dream in the formal gardens adorned with water features, secret arched pathways, and privacy walls formed of mature greenery. Savor a moment of serenity within a back stone courtyard designed to be in total harmony with its picturesque surroundings. The elegant columns contrast with the lush, level green lawn surrounding the grounds. Revel in breathtaking sunsets from the West facing facade. A large, elegant circular driveway welcomes with joint entrances for a grand arrival to the front door and direct access to the back oversized 2-car garage. A covered side porch protects from the elements with well situated brick stoop entry into kitchen and a relaxed approach from the pebbled motor courtyard.

Originally built for Dr. Johnathan Cogswell, a Harvard-graduate professor at the Theological Institute of Connecticut, 1752 Main Street remains the crown jewel of South Windor's storied bucolic farmlands. Decades of care and love have kept the home's spirit alive while preserving its legacy for future stewards of the property to enjoy for years to come.
