Unique opportunity to restore one of Newtown's more historic properties. The Thornton-Hicks House has a storied history and documented pedigree. Originally builtin 1782 by Margaret Thornton, Tavern Keeper of the Court Inn, this special property was also the residence Edward Hicks - of Peaceable Kingdon fame. Preserved on the west and north walls by a facade easement, this property is waiting for restoration - although some of the work has already commenced, a thoughtful renovation and well planned addition will bring this charming home back to life. Random width flooring in the two front rooms, as well as the second floor bedrooms are characteristic of the period. Fireplaces in the dining and rear bedroom beg for restoration and the third floor attic could be a spectacular retreat - wherther as a primary bedroom suite or a library/family room/game room.
