- Year Built 1790
- Acreage 3.7
This iconic property set in the Village of Meriden, has been in the same family since 1961. It consists of an antique Colonial (built 1790) single-family residence, which has also contained a 2nd unit at times, with extended heated, multi-floor shop spaces (approx. 5000 sf, including offices), and sheds. The property lies in the Village Residential Zone, but has had a commercial ceramic art and design studio operation grandfathered for use on the property for many years. The zoning district does allow home occupations in a single-family residence as a permitted use, and inn/B&B, office, restaurant, multi-family, private school, cottage business, approved business project, elderly housing, and other uses as Special Exceptions. It would seem to have great potential for single-family plus a studio, shop, contractors' shop, artisanal crafts, etc. The shop has a separate 200 amp service. There may also be potential for large-scale gardening, with a flat, open 3.7 acre lot (per town; deed and survey cite 5.1 acres)--town GIS map show much of lot as "Farmland of Local Importance". The house, though completely livable, has had renovations, but is in need of completed work in some areas; it features a lovely side porch and open kitchen/great room, grassy lot with gardens and apple trees. Property has a great location, across the street from beautiful Kimball Union Academy, and within 10-15 minutes of downtown Lebanon and I-89.
