Life in Newtown, CT: A Farmhouse Gets New Life in Newtown, CT

A Farmhouse Gets New Life in Newtown, CT

A Farmhouse Gets New Life in Newtown, CT Back in June of 2015, we listed a home for sale - 9 Bennetts Bridge Road, Sandy Hook.  This home had been owned by the Kearns family since 1936 when they purchased it from Charles Beardsley.  The Kearns family were local dairy farmers for many years. 

The home was built in 1875 and was just 989 Square Feet with a large unfinished storage room in the rear of it - a keeping room.  8 Kearns children were raised in this home. 

This is what the home looked like when we listed it for sale:

9 Bennetts Bridge Road, Sandy Hook 

As Realtors, we drive around town all the time - some areas more than others and that can change given where our business is.  We were recently past 9 Bennetts Bridge and were pleasantly surprised with the work the new owners have put in place.  We only viewed the outside of the home and are curious to see the completed project when it's done.

This is what 9 Bennetts Bridge Road looks like now:

They have created a great looking farm home from the outside.   Creativity only lacks for funds

It always great to see the homes that you have sold getting updated, improved and being well taken care of.  It looks like this one is definitely getting used and is well taken care of.

Bob and Richelle Ward Interesting to see the transition of this older home. It is a moment of pride when you realize that you were involved with this result. Nice presentation!

Thank you.  It was such a cute old farmhouse with the kitchen as the central part of the home.
