Historic Brownstone in
South Downtown, Hartford, CT

You greet friends in the spacious hallway, head up the open stairs to the warm country kitchen with a crackling fire, chat and drink wine while cooking at the Vulcan range, sit down to dinner looking out at the sparkling lights of the City skyline and then quickly scurry the one block to the Bushnell for a performance. Before most people can leave the parking lot, you are home enjoying a hot bath in the candle lit master bedroom suite. On another night, you may prefer a walk across the park for a meal and a basketball or hockey game.
