This $695K East Haddam Saltbox Is One of the Oldest Dwellings on the Connecticut Market
The buzz out of East Haddam is the listing of a circa-1690 saltbox, one of the oldest dwellings on the Connecticut market. It served as the town tavern before it was converted into the residence that would be home to American painter and illustrator W. Langdon Kihn, best known for his portraits of Native Americans. Indeed, the walls of one of the upstairs rooms are still painted with his murals, depicting Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland. On seven acres, featuring parterre gardens, a pool and a pool house, the property lists for $695,000 with Jennifer and Jane Associates, affiliated with William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty in Essex. 860-767-7488.
