The stone, stucco, and clapboard colonial house at 67 Ridgefield Road in Wilton is old enough to be considered antique although it was not built long enough ago to have witnessed a historical moment during the Revolutionary War.
This 15-room house was constructed 139 years after British troops marched down Ridgefield Road in Wilton on April 28, 1777 having just raided Danbury the day before. Red Coats came within a block of this property as they traveled back to their ships in Long Island Sound at Westport. "Having been warned of a possible ambush by militia units on the main road (now Old Ridgefield Road through Wilton Center), the British detoured down Mill Road," according to the Wilton Historical Society.
It's on the market for $3,600,000.
