More About This House
This lovingly restored 1912 Federal Revival home is located in a very private, beautifully landscaped 2/3 acre setting.
The first floor features a center hallway, original crown molding and custom woodwork in hallway, living room, and dining room, original quarter-sawn tiger oak floors, a formal living room with large fireplace, mantlepiece with dentil molding, built-in bookcases, a double set of original, hardwood French doors leading from living room to a street-facing front porch with swing, a formal dining room with original, hardwood French doors leading to a river-facing sunroom/screened porch, an eat-in kitchen with solid cherry cabinets, granite countertops, a butler’s pantry, an ice room, a powder room, and a servants’ staircase leading to the second floor. The kitchen was remodeled in 2018 and has brand new stainless-steel appliances and subway tile.
On the second floor you will love the master bedroom with window seat and French doors leading to another sunroom/screened porch which overlooks the river, two additional bedrooms (one with a “California”-style closet), a library/tv room with custom-built bookcase which could also be used as an additional bedroom, full bath with double sinks, whirlpool tub and separately enclosed shower, and a laundry room conveniently located between two bedrooms.
The third floor was originally used as the servants’ quarters. It contains two additional bedrooms. The large front bedroom has four enormous closets. Across the sitting area is an additional bedroom, which is currently used as a playroom. Off that bedroom is a very large storage area. The full bath has an original pedestal sink and claw-footed tub.
The yard contains approximately 15 pink and white flowering trees, a daffodil garden, wrought-iron rose trellises, and a rock garden with waterfall and fish pond. The rear yard has more than 130 feet of riverfront. There is a detached brick garage (exterior dimensions 18 feet wide by 21 feet deep), and a canoe dock, complete with Old Town canoe.
Front porch rebuilt in 2017; kitchen renovated in 2018. All new stainless steel appliances, subway tile.
