Description

This home has all the quality and distinction one would expect of a custom house of the 1920s. Surrounded by a mature garden & enclosed by stone walls, evocative of the English Arts and Crafts style which influenced the overall design of the house. The custom trellis over the stone entrance to the rear garden is covered by a mature vine, creating a secret garden feel. The dramatically pitched roof, stone, and brick construction likewise speak to this design history and there is an impressive circular drive with newly planted sugar maple & English oak trees. Unlike many Arts and Crafts homes, however, this home has an abundance of large period windows filling the house with light including an iconic vaulted sunroom. Multiple high-end updates have modernized and if possible, further enhanced the home. The kitchen was completely renovated in the 80s, including custom quarter sewn oak cabinetry, custom vintage trim work, a concealed panel-front (new) dishwasher, and the jaw-dropping Viking double range and hood is truly exceptional. The living room is filled with natural light, warm hardwood floors, and an arched entrance into the most amazing sunroom with a Gothic ceiling. A large built-in LR library cabinet was lost, but this has been meticulously remediated and will soon be replaced by a local custom cabinetmaker at furniture grade.
