About our home

This elegant, two story home is a true center hall colonial built in 1840 by Henry Beach. Henry Beach was born in 1800 of Scotch ancestry. He was a “man of splendid business ability, positive character and sterling worth whose commendable life won him the regard of all with whom he came into contact.” In the 1840’s, when mail was being brought into Montville by stage coach, Henry Beach was the postmaster and maintained the post office in the house. Caught up in the Gold Rush to California, Henry spent some time in Sacramento where he successfully operated a restaurant.
Rich with nineteenth century detailing, the two-story, wood home features a dramatic central hallway, five large bedrooms, four and a half baths and an elegant dining room. Exposed beams lend character to the cozy family room, and random width wood floors add warmth throughout. The home also boasts seven fireplaces, including one in the eat-in country kitchen as well as in the master bedroom.
