Property Description

26.56± acre estate, known as Raynham, on the East Shore of New Haven in the Annex neighborhood presents a unique opportunity for development, institutional use, and other uses. The site has 950 feet of contiguous frontage on Townsend Avenue and includes ownership of a portion of Raynham Hill Drive. There’s an intermittent stream and flagged wetlands totaling 2.56± acres in the central portion of the site. The land west of the stream is mostly open and level. The land east of the stream is wooded hillside with elevations ranging from 65 to 145 feet. The main house, known as Raynham, was built in 1804 as a Federal Farmhouse and extensively remodeled into a Victorian Gothic residence in 1858. The site has not been actively farmed in recent years but there are many visible remains of its agricultural past, including numerous agricultural outbuildings. A package of plans and detailed information on the property is available.
