STAMFORD, Conn. – William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty announced the firm has listed a restored stone Colonial residence in North Stamford with a rich historic past.
Formerly known as Davenport Farm, it was later famous as the 68-acre grand Calhoun Estate where the Scottish Games were locally held. This property has a charming appeal, according to a press release.
The North Stamford home is represented by Stamford agents June Rosenthal and Linda Sentementes and is listed for $2.495 million.
Staying true to their original Scottish roots, the Calhoun family transformed this property into one of Stamford’s most well-known estates, serving as host to the Highland Scottish Games for many years, according to a press release.
This traditional Scottish celebration is held every spring and summer in Scotland and other countries to honor and appreciate the Celtic culture. The Highlands, a historic region of Scotland that embraces the country’s Gaelic roots, is the main focus of the event, where authentic emblems of Scotland including bagpipes, the kilt, music, dancing and specific Scottish athletic games such as the caber toss, take place.
Prior to the Calhouns’ residency, the property additionally maintained local recognition as Davenport Farm, a working cattle farm in town established in 1721.
The residence, which is now sited on 2.6 of its original 68 acres, boasts a meticulous renovation while still maintaining many original features and antique qualities, according to a press release.
Constructed of stone, the Colonial-style farmhouse includes five bedrooms and five full and two half baths in its 10,020-square-foot main house, which was redone to incorporate modern luxuries and conveniences in 1935.
