84 May 2016 RISMedia's REAL ESTATE {RISMedia's Great Spaces} The Ultimate Bed and Breakfast Have you ever dreamed of owning your very own bed and breakfast? Your dream could now become reality! In an area known for its historic architecture, the Silas W. Robbins House of 1873 stands as one of the great period homes in Connecti- cut. A masterful six-year restoration (2001 - 07) resulted in a lavish trans- formation that preserved the time- less elegance of this distinguished Second Empire mansion. From its mansard roof with cast-iron cresting and porte-cochère entry to its re- markable interiors resplendent with ornate millwork and stained glass, the 7,500-square-foot home is an aesthetic tour-de-force. Highlights include a grand foyer, parlor, library and several dining ar- eas. A ballroom is found on the top level of this three-tiered confection, presently operating as a bed and breakfast. Readied for 21st century living, there is a deluxe kitchen, sev- en ensuite bedrooms, eight full and three half-baths, an elevator, state- of-the-art mechanical systems and whole-house generator, and a car- riage house with three-car garage. Opportunities to enjoy the splendid 1.2-acre setting abound with several sunny terraces, a wrap-around porch and a gazebo. Located in Old Wethersfeld, Conn., the estate faces the charming village green in the historic district, one mile by Nick Caruso & Zoe Eisenberg Just outside of Hartford, Conn., this gorgeous bed and breakfast from 1873 underwent a six-year restoration.
