Charming period details are found throughout this six-bedroom, four-bath home on almost a half acre. Entering the front door, the two-story stairway floats it's way up to the second floor. On either side of the staircase are two inviting cozy rooms complete with fireplaces and clerestory windows filtering light into each room. Built-in nooks make for some intimate spaces. One room for casual family gathering and one for those intimate formal occasions. Meandering to the back of the house you find the custom kitchen featuring white cabinets and soapstone countertops perfect for entertaining. The dining room will fit a crowd or a small dinner party. An additional screened-in porch with ceiling fan overlooks a small garden, while the open porch is perfect for enjoying coffee and the morning sun.
Upstairs the master bedroom boasts woodwork created by master craftsmen, high ceilings and a nice bright bathroom. Two other bedrooms with an updated tiled bathroom along with a family room are located on the second floor. A large sleeping porch peers out to the secluded backyard. The third floor has two bedrooms, a full bath, exercise room and a cozy paneled office.
