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!

The LIVING ROOM, with a wall size mirror included in the sale, can hold the largest of family gatherings and has a 5th gas fireplace and French doors out to the porch. On the 2nd floor of the Main house, you'll love the MASTER SUITE with original curved windows, walk-in closet, lush Master bathroom featuring separate Shower and Jacuzzi tub, marble tiling and extra-wide vanity. There are 2 more bedrooms and a hall bath here too. BUT THEN, what a treat to have an entire SECOND WING, where a large reception room/BEDROOM, 2 OFFICES and a conference room are accessed from the side of the house. A full bath is here as well. Travel up the back stairs and find a complete bedroom suite with kitchenette, laundry room, living room, deck, bedroom and full bath. The second wing has access to each floor if desired.
