Welcome to 80 Shelton Road, a 3 bedroom and 2 bath Trumbull antique colonial in desirable Nichols market and listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
This lovingly cared for 1932 colonial exudes charm and splendor from yesteryear showing original wood-work, floors and moldings. The eat-in kitchen has been updated with corian counters and new appliances including a gas cook top. The kitchen has a separate side entrance that walks through a mud room to a new large composite trex deck making entertaining friends and family on the large deck very convenient.
Step into an elegant dining room with 9' ceilings, sparkling floors and new windows and also adjacent to the kitchen for convenience of breaking bread and serving family and friends. The living room shows an original fireplace enclosure and heatilator that helps bring the heat into the room instead of up the chimney. The LR runs the full width of the house with lots of windows at either end. It also has 2 original windowed doors that wrap around to a den sporting a sofa and piano. It's a great space for some privacy while still being connected to the family room.
Take the gorgeous stairs showing an original banister and woodwork to 3 bedrooms and a second full bath upstairs. The master bedroom, once two separate rooms now shows as a single large master bedroom including his and her closets in one spacious room. At the top of the stairs is a separate door that walks onto a rooftop balcony that overlooks the private back yard. A wonderful venue for a change of pace, personal space or for some intimacy. In addition, there is a full walk up attic entirely dedicated to storage.
The basement is mostly unfinished with the exception of a working office, currently in use. On top of taking superb care of the house, the current owners improved the efficiency of the home by replacing all the windows with high quality insulated windows throughout. They also re-insulated external walls and added a new 2-layer insulation system in the attic. The home is part of the area served by the Nichols Improvement Association with private parks, pond and trails. There are also several parks within walking distance hosting tennis, soccer and baseball fields. Also find locally an apple orchard, 3 Churches, a walk in clinic on Bridgeport ave and a veterinary clinic to name a few.
A mile and a half from fantastic shopping and dining plaza's and close to the merit parkway and Rt 25, make this home very attractive. Let me take you on a private tour of the home from the convenience of your computer with a video tour of 80 Shelton Road, Trumbull. Call Tom to schedule your personal showing at 203-268-4994 x3.
