Unexpected. Turn key. A Rare Find in Wallingford. Take a breath as you drive down the private drive to 31 S. Providence Road. The owners have purposely kept the bumps in the drive to slow you down. You're entering another world of tranquil privacy and beauty in an extremely convenient location!Nestled in 1.5 acres of land, this 1941 Farmhouse Colonial was constructed using quality materials with a solid foundation and rugged brick siding. In those days, the walls were sheathed with smooth wallboard or plaster and the floor laid with durable wood flooring. Today, the square footage is 4,099, quite a change from its original footprint and worth every inch. Part of the one of the additions includes a stunning Sunroom that is filled with light and warmth. There is a Dining area here and a full bath. It features panoramic views of the Back Yard from the side to side picture windows, an eyebrow window to the sky and skylights. With views akin to an arboretum, the park-like Backyard includes many majestic mature trees, including several Cryptomiria Japonica, a Dawn Redwood, a spectacular Southern Magnolia, towering Sweet Gum, variegated Willow and many more specimen plantings and trees with perennials and annuals placed in beds below, that together form a dramatic backdrop to a lush backyard. You'll sit for hours there, or on the elevated Deck that runs the entire length of the house with access from the Sunroom, Living Room and Foyer. The Living Room is directly off the Foyer and with its access to the Deck and SunRoom, you'll find entertaining to be both intimate and easy for large gatherings. The custom built shelving with arch headers that surround the original fireplace fill this room with charm and character. Like to cook?
