In 1780 the dashing Squire Hazen built Highfield. Today it is owned by the heirs of renowned architect, Richard Dana and has been in the family for over 100 years. When Richard Dana bought Highfield he set about restoring the house and gardens to their original state. The single nine-foot square chimney serves all five fireplaces. The original entrance was destroyed and the beautiful Colonial doorway from the Nathan Smith Mansion on the New Haven Green became the perfect substitute in character and scale. The living room, once the spacious Colonial kitchen is filled with atmosphere of earlier times when carding & spinning were common tasks. The music room/morning room is filled with light and overlooks a most pleasing garden, with brick paving and a pergola designed by Richard Dana as a delightful feature. Included is a three-bedroom, three-bath guest house with library and great room total 2, 800+ square feet. Also included is a studio for any artistic pursuit. This is one of Washington's premier properties surrounded by conserved land, beautiful farmland also owned by families for many decades.
