This elegantly restored Georgian Cape Cod home in Norfolk, Connecticut, was built circa 1790 by Captain John Bradley, a Revolutionary War veteran, according to the listing. Later known as the Joseph Bruey Farm, the pristine white home features many original details as well as gorgeous, sympathetic updates that bring the 2,198-square-foot residence into the contemporary age.

Whitewashed inside and out, the simple structure boasts original wide-plank floors, wainscoting, exposed rough-hewn beams, and granite fireplaces. Three bedrooms, two baths, formal living, dining, and sitting rooms, plus a spacious eat-in kitchen with lounge and top-of-the-line appliances are arrayed over two bright floors, all with views toward the verdant 6.7-acre site.

A separate two-car garage with a second-floor storage and study space round out the property. Located at 181 Bruey Road, it’s offered at $625,000.
