From the Zillow listing:


TRUE Greenwich Gem-(looking for some polish) The Anchorage- Wheaton homestead was built in 1848 as a mirror image, twin home on historic Ye Greate St, established in 1684. This unique, almost 4000 sf, 3.5 story home sits on nearly an acre of land. The potential of this home, to become whatever your heart desires, is incredible. With lovely period moldings, high ceilings, wide plank floors and a working wood burning fireplace, dual front and rear stair cases… you will be transported to another time. Today it is a single family residence, which can easily be converted back to a twin structure. The home has approximately 20 rooms. Currently there are 4 bedrooms and 3 1/2 baths, formal parlor, family room, oversized dining room, eat in kitchen, a weaving studio, art studio, music room, gym, office, etc… The extensive gardens with its various species of plants and trees will provide hours of relaxation and joy as you stroll along its winding paths. Theres also the 2 open air porches and a sunroom that provides ample space to enjoy those lazy summer days. On top of it all, at the rear of the property, is an oversized 2 car garage with a generous sized work shop and small greenhouse. The possibilities of this distinctive home are endless. With some TLC this homestead will continue its long legacy as one of the grand homes lining Ye Greate St in historic Greenwich. This is an Estate sale and will be sold AS-IS. Buyer will be responsible for any/all repairs/certifications needed in order to obtain mortgage/Certificate of Occupancy.
