The house and landscaping for this home have been lovingly and meticulously restored by the same family for over 30 yrs. Land is owned on 2 sides of the road with the Umpachene River runs through the property. There are 2 ponds with extensive landscaping and one with fieldstone steps leading to patio area with firepit fountains waterfall.The outside creates a spa like feel with the sound of water The house on Canaan Southfield Rd was built in 1797 and is a classic example of New England Federal architecture.
