More detail on the property and neighborhood...
Property – 29 Hollow Road was built as a farm house in 1850 and is part of the Woodbury Historic District. DeWitt Brothers Development acquired the property in 2013 and completed a renovation to restore the home while modernizing the kitchen, bath, and major systems. The home now offers rustic charm along with modern day amenities, such as central air conditioning, dishwasher, and washer/dryer.
Neighborhood – 29 Hollow Road is located in Woodbury, CT, a rural town known for its antiquing, beautiful parks, and historical homes. It is the classic New England town in a sense with its tree lined Main Street dotted with quaint shops and Colonial, Greek Revival and Victorian mansions. It was the inspiration for former resident LeRoy Anderson’s holiday classic “Sleigh Ride”, written in Woodbury in 1947. 29 Hollow Road is located on a side street off of Main Street adjacent to The Hollow Park, a 70 acre recreation area that offers hiking, sports fields, picnic areas, a playground, a swimming pond and a weekly farmers’ market and concert series in the summer. In the winter months, there are paths for cross country skiing and snow shoeing. The Hurd House, the oldest house in Woodbury and the oldest of the one-room over one-room construction in Connecticut, was built in 1680 and is also adjacent to 29 Hollow Road. It is owned and was recently restored by the Old Woodbury Historical Society. The Glebe House, built in 1746 and now owned by the Seabury Society, is also located one block from the property and now serves as a public museum. Lastly, Woodbury is home to the Flander’s Nature Center, a community wildlife resource and a land trust managing over 1,400 acres in Woodbury and surrounding towns that is open to residents.
