    Description

Pictures simply do not do justice to this grand, gorgeous historic estate set on an acre of lush, private property, with an extraordinary landscape brimming with trees, bushes & expansive green lawn. This turn-of-the-century home is truly magnificent, boasting 20~ thick exterior stone walls & a huge wraparound front porch with open arches that is also clad in stonework. This beauty has been maintained by loving owners, and impeccably preserved to maintain the charm, integrity & authenticity of its era. Sharing the grounds is an enchanting detached carriage house 3-car garage, complemented by generous driveway parking for guests. Exquisite architectural details abound inside, enhancing the unique character with an 1890 English colonial oak wood staircase, stunning trim & woodwork throughout, deep window sills, curved walls, hardwood floors, coffered ceilings, arched doorways & pocket doors among the distinctive elements. The striking foyer features a solid wood arched front door flanked by leaded glass windows & original staircase ascending to the 2nd floor landing brightened by a triple-panel arched window.
