Charming, 85-year old cottage in Bethel’s desirable south side on the way to Redding. Located on 7.25 sub-dividable acres with 360 feet of road frontage (half-acre zoning) the property is accessed by a bridge over a small stream and bordered at the rear by forever-wild, town-owned property. The two-bedroom house has a modern kitchen with center island, flanked by a dining area and large living room with a working fireplace and 10-foot ceiling. The smaller bedroom looks out onto the beautiful woods. The larger bedroom adjoins a large sunny space with two sliding-glass doors, currently being used as a home office, and looks over the large yard, organic gardens and swimming pool. The lower level with bath has been used for overflow guests and as a second in-home office. French doors, 1930's woodwork, many windows, large, covered flagstone front porch, out building with whole house generator. This unique wooded property is very close to downtown Bethel—quaint shops, gourmet restaurants, Caraluzzi’s market, bookstores, a movie theater, and a Metro North train station. Bethel may be the last truly affordable town in Fairfield county. Remote and private yet a two minute drive to town. The house and grounds have wonderful potential but need updating. Perfect for a multi-home compound if you want to build additional structures on the property. Or sell off a building lot or two to defer the purchase price
