By 1834 Unionville had outgrown its first little log school and decided to build a private school, the large two-story building at the fork at the west end of town, and called it the Unionville Academy. 251 Upland Road was built next door as a boarding house so students from farther away could attend. Now a gracious home, it offers over 4000 sq ft of living space bordering Unionville's historic district. Consisting of a formal living room and dining room, a parlor, game room, study/office, 7 bedrooms, 3 full and 1 half baths, 2 kitchens, and lots of additional space with flexible configurations, this quintessential brick residence is a good example of Federal architecture with a Victorian era front porch addition. Inside are generously proportioned rooms, beautiful hardwoods and moldings, 10 foot ceilings and bright, airy spaces. A large center hall entry features an impressive three story staircase. The updated kitchen is stocked with today~s amenities and features creamy white cabinetry with under mount lighting, lots of countertops topped with dark granite, stainless appliances, custom backsplash, a convenient breakfast bar and a fireplace! The second floor is serviced by a rear staircase that leads to 4 large bedrooms and a bath. Another wing houses the 2nd kitchen with back stairway to 3 more bedrooms and a full bath. The third floor features 2 bonus rooms and full bath. All the windows in the house come with a view of the tranquil grounds outside. An outbuilding has the potential to become a detached garage with studio space. This 3 acre homesite is peacefully located off the grid but still close to area amenities. You know, it's the simple things that make life sweet, especially when enjoyed from a rocking chair on the front porch of a historic house, surrounded by pastoral views. This stately home is full of charm and potential!
