Property Description

Welcome to the “John Mixer Tavern”, the oldest house in Ashford, dating (1710) back to before the town was officially established in 1714. Rich in history, with a collection of owners from tavern keepers and doctors to a world champion tennis pro and an opera singer. Serious restoration of this exquisite home began in the 1920’s and has evolved since. Interior features of this over 5000 sq. ft. house include 5 bedrooms and 4 full baths, 10 fireplaces and classic antique details like wide-plank floors, raised panel doors and windows with beaded casings. The kitchen boasts hammered copper sinks, slate counter tops and tobacco wood cabinets. A large brick fireplace with a wood stove offers warmth and ambiance, creating a family gathering area for the kitchen. Main level laundry is part of the newest addition off the kitchen. Finishing out the main level is the large “Keeping Room” with a beautiful stone hearth, a parlor and the historic tavern as well as additional rooms leading to a private apartment/in-law suite with another stone hearth, second kitchen and bathroom. The upper-level rounds out the bedrooms, baths and a relaxed second living/family room. The basement is even impressive with newer mechanicals and a large arched stone wine cellar.
