A community for Old Houses
1) Where is the house? (not the address, just the country, city and county/state/province) Stratford, CT|
2) Are you the owner? If not, do you know who is? My husband and I bought the house in August 2011
3) What year was it built? 1915
4) Is it haunted? And have you seen the ghost? Tell us about it! As far as we can tell no, all bumps in the night are the fault of the cat.
5) What is the house's history? Well, it was built in 1915 it is a craftsman bungalow that has been a little butchered by the previous owners (we think). The previous owners lived here for 45 years, and raised 7 kids in our house. They added an addition in 1982ish, which houses the master bedroom and formerly very 70's bathroom. We have ripped up most of the ugly brow carpet with padding that was basically powder, to reveal red oak flooring. We're slowly trying to modernize while keeping true to the original style of the house. The previous owners also closed in former front porch.
