The perfect mixture of Old and New!

All Constructed in 1990 on a new foundation with new evertyhing except the antique preserved boards, which was brought from 1815 built home.  It was all built with quality craftmanship by Willton's master builder, Walter R.T. Smith, as his own home. 

Walter R. T. Smith is one of the most prestigious building preservation experts in Wilton. He has done a lot of projects with Wilton Historical Society  to preserve Wilton’s antique houses and historical buildings. And this house is one of them.   When he got the permission of removal of 1815 built house (one of the oldest house of Wilton), he carefully dismentled the house and moved it to his property on 18 Forest lane where he rebuilt as his home in 1990.

So the house has its history of two centuries 1800's and late 1900's , yet  all in brand new foundation with new systems. 

This antique side of dining room and living room carry the 19 century's beauty , preserved 1820 style oven and fireplace.

Very interesting Dagny Eason . I love seeing buildings restored as opposed to being demolished.
