Built circa 1790, the Richard Butler House is the earliest existing house in the Rainbow section of Windsor. Called Rainbow for the graceful bend in the river that resembles a rainbow, it became the name of this early settlement. The earliest known occupant was Richard Butler, Esq, thus the house has since been known as the 'Butler Place.' This Dutch Colonial has a major center chimney that connects 4 working fireplaces. It is a fine example of a late 18th cen. dwelling w/gambrel roof profile. The house was completely renovated 2003-2005 to combine the solid structural bones of this historical house w/all the conveniences of modern living. In the Great Room the gorgeous wide-board floors & huge FP are still there, but so are solid cherry cabinets, prep-island & stainless steel appls. The 2 full baths, 1 up & 1 down, are updated. On the 1st floor one room is a bedroom, 2nd living room & 3rd a mudroom or office. Upstairs are 3 generously sized bedrooms, all w/beautiful old hardwood floors. In the basement is a fantastic walkout family room w/sliders to a paved outdoor patio. This finished room, which has a huge cooking FP that was uncovered in the late 1970's, is the perfect gathering spot for friends/family. Remainder of basement is for storage & laundry. Renovations incl. 4-Zone heating system, updated insulation, newer windows & large storage shed. This is a unique opportunity to live in an historical home w/o giving up the conveniences of modern living - it combines both!
