Things we love about this property crush:

When you picture a classic East Coast Colonial, a house just like this most likely comes to mind. Located in the Historic Village Green in tony Sharon, Connecticut, this 1850s home boasts loads of space, but somehow manages to feel cozy and elegant at the same time.

You can just imagine Diane Keaton fluttering around its three floors. The light-filled home boasts living rooms (yes, plural), a formal dining room, a study, kitchen, family dining room, and a den that begs for a serious book collection. Six bedrooms are generously sized, and the baths are spacious and beautifully remodeled. But the best part is in the details. Think, French doors, soaring windows, graceful moldings, high ceilings, and lovely cabinetry (ideal for showing off that China collection).

Outside, a lush lawn is sprawling enough for early spring garden parties and it’s not hard to imagine sipping G&Ts on the stone terrace.

Even cuter? This home is actually located on 1 Main Street.
