The property is a magnificent .9 acre lot with matures trees and raspberry bushes.

The award winning conservatory was designed to take advantage of the stunning views throughout the year with radiant heated flooring. The outdoor living space includes a private ice-blue sandstone patio, built-in grill, and a stately front porch. The home is loaded with vintage charm throughout. The de Guilio kitchen renovation features a distinctive tin ceiling. The renovated bathrooms, have vanities that were converted from antique furniture. Other vintage details include rich moldings, antique hardware, tall ceilings, and quarter sawn oak flooring. The 4,443 square foot home has extensive living space and potential for expansion with several large unfinished spaces. Enter the home through the front foyer with marble flooring and a beautiful Eastlake Victorian staircase.

The expansive first floor includes the living room, dining room, kitchen, butler’s pantry, family room, library, conservatory, powder bathroom, and mud room. The second floor has four large bedrooms, three full bathrooms, a bonus room or potential fifth bedroom, and laundry room. The master suite renovation was featured in Better Homes and Gardens Remodeling Ideas magazine. The suite includes a dressing room and master bathroom with radiant heated marble flooring, marble shower, and claw-foot bathtub. The home also has garage space for four cars with a detached two car garage and an attached two car heated garage. There is a large 22’x22’ unfinished room above the attached garage for storage or expansion. The unfinished third level was used for hosting dances back in the day. It also has great potential with tall ceilings and large windows.
