"The Joseph Fessenden House" is one of the most extraordinary examples of the subtle blend of both the Georgian and Federal Colonial styles. Having undergone a complete and painstaking four year restoration from 1988 to 1992 under the meticulous eye of the current owner, the reverence for the property's place in our State and Country's architectural history, exhibited in the workmanship and simple beauty, is unmistakable. Period details including incredible millwork, 10 original working fireplaces with soapstone surrounds and fireboxes, a leaded fan-shaped transom window, shallow molded cornice dentilation, cornice moldings, interior window shutters, original paneling grace the entirety of the home's interior. Two historic frame barns, transported and reconstructed on site, as well as extensive European style gardens laid out in symmetrical designs with perennial plantings and fountain combined with acres of flat, open agricultural land with long frontage on the White River.
