The Mansion at Chestnut Hill
CBRE/New England is pleased to offer for sale this historic, 18,000 Sq.Ft., three-story retail/office building located within the heart of Simsbury, Connecticut. Known locally as “The Mansion at Chestnut Hill” 690 Hopmeadow Street was originally built in 1905 and served as the long-time residence of Joseph R. Ensign.
690 Hopmeadow Street is a local landmark that enjoys a commanding presence at the intersection of Route 10/202 (Hopmeadow Street) and Route 167 (West Street), the “Gateway” to downtown Simsbury. Its architecturally distinct brownstone facade, detailed woodwork, dormered windows and sprawling front lawn are reminiscent of another era. In fact, the former Ensign Mansion at 690 Hopmeadow Street is one of the town’s most recognizable and iconic buildings. The property is situated on 3.24 picturesque acres within Simsbury’s historic district, with immediate pedestrian access to the Farmington River, dozens of retail shops and restaurants, Simsbury’s famous flower bridge, the Simsbury Free Public Library, and numerous other walkable amenities within Simsbury Center.
Listed on the Historic Register, 690 Hopmeadow Street presents a unique opportunity for redevelopment. Preliminary approval for mixed-use development of the existing building and surplus land has already been issued with uses including multifamily and hotel, as well as specialty uses such as bed and breakfast and health spa/wellness. 690 Hopmeadow Street is immediately available for sale at an asking price of $1,825,000.
