In this episode of Lifestyles, we visit the historic Walter Perry home, circa 1830 – a property as rich in beauty as it is in history. The Perry family arrived back in 1735. Today, the original home has been expanded and renovated.

It has a huge, flat, level backyard with a Pool and a Sport Court. And, it is set FAR BACK from the main road. Come on…. Let’s take a look inside. The heart of this home is surely the Kitchen Great Room which opens to the backyard. There are formal Living and Dining Rooms plus, a bright Family Room. Upstairs, you’ll find five spacious bedrooms (with ample closet space) and luxurious baths … plus a Bonus Room. Heated by natural Gas with a formal Dining room But, it wasn’t always this way.

In the early 1900’s, the house was moved from the Valley Forge District, which is now under the Saugatuck Reservoir. In 1767, the Town of Redding was organized and in 1768 was divided into school districts. Nathaniel Perry was one of the first teachers in the nearby schoolhouse. The Perry’s are well known for their contributions to society and the rich history of the area. In 1868, George Perry patented “Grape Cultivation”. In 1934, Harry Perry invented the “Lobster Roll”, at the family’s Fish Market.
