Entering the MAIN HOUSE from the mahogany wrap-around porch with bead board ceiling, you'll especially enjoy one of the features of the original home: the 3 intricate 1800s fireplaces with hand carved mantles, antique tiles and hand-cast Iron Fire backs in the Dining & Breakfast rooms and the Foyer. The turreted side of the home houses the elegant formal DINING ROOM with recessed lighting and antique chandelier Imagine entertaining here with original curved windows overlooking the front garden!
