A 1904-Built Stamford House with Cozy Cabin Style Is Up for Sale
A circa-1904 Stamford spread called Orient Lodge proves that there’s nothing cozier than an authentic Arts-and-Crafts-style home. The three-story, stone-and-timber main house is blessed with a 600-square-foot great room, with 25-foot-high beamed ceilings, exposed log walls and the original floor-to-ceiling, river-rock fireplace. But the real draw, at least for history buffs, is the older cottage on the grounds, once part of a circa-1825 sawmill.
The current owners brought the dilapidated property back to life, which earned them an Award of Merit by the Connecticut Trust for Historic Preservation. The property is now listed for $1.499 million with Suzette Kraus of William Raveis Real Estate in Old Greenwich.
