In the far reaches of West Suffield on Phelps Road stands a gorgeous home built more than two centuries ago by the man after whom the street is presumably named.
A sign on the west edge of the front of the two-story clapboard house at 3377 Phelps Road indicates it was built by Judah Phelps in 1790.
According to rootsweb.ancestry.com, Judah Phelps was a prosperous agriculturist in a part of West Suffield now kown as Warnertown. He owned a large amount of land, and was highly respected in the community. He and his wife, the former Abigail Bishop, had 12 children.
The stunning red home measures 2,656 square feet, and sits on more than 10 acres of land. A 607 square foot bungalow, built in 1900, is also contained on the grounds. The appraised value of the property is $710,600, according to Suffield property records.
