EASTON — The custom-built colonial house at 130 Norton Road is quintessentially New England. The natural wood house with Colonial red-colored trim looks like it belongs to an earlier time period, perhaps the late 1700s when America was in its youth.
In truth, the 3,116-square-foot house is a much later vintage. It was built in 1973 and comfortably sits on a three-acre level property in the historic Aspetuck neighborhood. The interior of the house was also made to replicate an earlier time period; its color scheme, wallpaper and exposed rough-hewn beams resembling 18th century design. There are wood paneled and stone walls, rustic cabinetry in the kitchen, and wide-planked hardwood floors. And that’s fine since, believe it or not, antique houses are coming back in style. Everything old is new again. Owning this house would be like having a vintage house with newer bones, meaning it would not require as much maintenance as an antique.
