With many of the original features having been preserved & cared for, the character of this historic home remains. Hardwood flooring, crown mouldings, tall ceilings & a grand staircase are just some of the features and attention to detail that went in to the original design of this home.
The main level features two living rooms, a dining room & a recently renovated kitchen with views of the bay from your ceilings-to-counter windows. The upper level enjoys four spacious bedrooms plus a bonus room with access to a covered verandah. Currently being used as an office, this space could be an additional bedroom, library or sitting room. In addition to a half bath on the lower level, the upper floor has two three-piece baths.
The home is heated with multiple heat pumps and beautiful cast iron radiators (oil furnace). From the the mature tree-lined driveway while entering the 6.5 acres of land, the unique design, covered verandas and surrounding property will amaze you.
