This is a charming house, worthy of its distinguished antecedents. The V.I.P. (very important porches) are a link with the modest but substantial homes of the early century. The lovely pointed gabels, with round-top windows, a bow and a balcony are custom keyed for today and the future. Economy of size 40' across with the porches doesn't affect the room area. From front to back, the footage for living and dining is over 26'. A wide front window, woodstove fireplace with slate hearth at the side and winged french doors from the dining end to the expanded porch underline the wealth of luxury amenities. Across the back, there is a option of combining kitchen and dining space to its fullest extent, nearly 28'. Beyond the french doors in the kitchen is a breakfast porch. A mud room with laundry alcove and windowed 1/2 bath is very handy but out of traffic. On the upper floor, there are two large bedrooms each with something special; on one side, winged french door opens onto a romantic balcony; at the other there is a gabled dormer and twin walk-in closets. A huge cedar closet and low eave area expand the family stoage and an alcoved bath is just to one side in the hall. Best of all is the bedroom suite on the first floor that features its own windowed bath, generous closets, quaint stove with gas starter/thermostat and the beautiful bay windowed extension at the front.
