Beautiful and large ... Dutch Colonials ... the 1755 and 1777 house should be purchased together, but can be separated.  We have enough windows for the 1777 house. The 1777 house has the complete shell, and much of the original interior: staircases, panel walls, flooring, fireplace stone, doors, etc. There wasn’t much interior of the 1755 house found. The plan is to use the 1777 house as the main house and the shell of the 1755 house as an addition, or a multifamily. 


Henshaw House ... 1755  from  Middletown Ct ... 1400 square feet.    $ 40,000

1755 Henshaw House


Boardman Danforth House ... 1777 from Middletown Ct ... 3325 square feet      $ 160,000

1777 Boardman Danforth House





The 1777 house and the 1755 house are both gambrel.  The two houses are 4,725 sqft with three stories.  They were adjoining houses on their original site, so the smaller was moved to be an addition for the other.  There are 7 rafters missing from the 1755 house because a large dormer was installed later.  They were disassembled in the 1990s, packed together in 40' trailers, and are ready to ship.   


Many photos during dismantling and complete schematic notes for the 1755 and 1777 houses.  Each element has a metal tag stamped with a reference number tying it to schematics for reconstruction.  An inventory for each house is included.  In all, about 8,000 board feet of wide board flooring, subflooring, siding, and over 400 posts, beams, and other structural elements. 


The 1777 is a real beauty, and its owner, Thomas Boardman, was a Silversmith and Pewter craftsman in Middletown and contemporary of Paul Revere.  This house was a mansion of its era.   It needs to be resited in a substantial neighborhood with the Boardman house as the main residence and the Henshaw house as a separate 2-3 car and utility garage.  The house is big enough to command a price that would pay for construction professionals.


Boardman Pewter was very successful, finally closing its doors in 1880, and there is active EBay trading of antique Boardman pewter.




Because this house was removed from a historical site, it was freed from all the folderal of third party controls.  It wont qualify for tax credits, nor can it be listed on the Ntl Register of Hist … blah blah …  But it will be the reserection of a 1777 house with original materials and modern comforts.


The wood beams are rare high quality First Growth American Chestnut.  Chestnut forests were decimated by a Chinese fungus and gone by 1935.  Today, the industry wholesale price of Chestnut is $ 16 - 22 bdft, and is sourced from disassembly of houses built before 1900.
