Wallingford is home to many adorable, century-old craftsmans. So it’s no wonder that this three-bedroom property once owned by the neighborhood namesake, developer John Wallingford, also fits the bill.
The home was originally built in 1907, and it shows in historic detailing. A dormer and diamond-shaped window details hold out from the Victorian era. A covered porch centers one of the roof’s peaks, bounded by square columns.
Those details continue inside on the main level. A cased opening separates the living room from the formal dining area. Period millwork tops the windows and passageways. A corner window bench creates a cozy reading space in the living room. Hardwood floors cover most rooms.
A large kitchen has plenty of cabinets and counter space.
The home features two bedrooms on the main floor with that same classic craftsman interior look.
Far more modern-looking is the basement, which has been finished into the bottom half of the duplex, with a separate entrance, one bedroom, and its own kitchen with room for a dining nook. The current owners have been renting it out on Airbnb.
Out back, find a picket-fence-lined porch and a coordinated blue garage.
Two homes in one historic wrapper are listed for $750,000—about the going rate for homes in the neighborhood the previous owner built.
