About the neighbourhood
The coach house is a part of the original house built in 1795 on three-acres at the very heart of the historic village of South Britain with its 22 historic houses, a few from the 17th century. Across the street from the house is the Congregational Church founded in 1725 and, after a fire, rebuilt in 1835. We have Southbury's first Village Hall (1873) and first library (1904); the former is a local museum and the latter houses a collection of books about the village and town histories. The Country Store is a block away with a veranda where neighbors congregate. A short mile away walking along the Pomperaug River is the Audubon Society's Bird Sanctuary with field glasses to watch the diverse species feeding at multiple stations. Within a short walk or jog along a farm road with... more
