Built in 1890, the flexible floor plan of this historic home is filled with tremendous amounts of detailed woodwork and handcrafted details. In 2005, a master plasterer restored the first floor ceilings incorporating glass beads with plaster leaf motif to re-create a wedding cake effect.

Off the hall is the warm living room which enjoys built-in shelves and an oversized window that helps to create a relaxing atmosphere. The chef’s kitchen boasts top of the line Viking appliances, granite countertops, and a breakfast area surrounded by large windows.
