The main kitchen was remodeled last year and has granite counters, tile backsplash, gas stove, double convection ovens, tons of cabinets with pull-outs, bar seating, lighted cabinets, under cabinet lighting, and prep area with a sink and wine fridge in the butler’s pantry. Just a few of the updates include plumbing, electric, tuck-pointing, interior storm windows, insulation, 50-year HEATED roof installed in 2010, and every floor has its own furnace/AC (*See Updates/Renovation List for a complete list of updates). A bone-dry basement that has plenty of storage space, too!
The carriage house was remodeled in 2016 and has 2 levels with 1880 SF, 2 bedrooms with walk-in closets, 2 bathrooms, large living room, kitchen, and laundry room.
