What I Love about the Home
The 'Jewel of Bedford' awaits you. Designed by Everett Fauber architect and build for one of the famous Joseph Davidson's family in 1937. This exquisite Williamsburg Colonial has had numerous improvements over the years, with a new kitchen and three bathrooms since 2009. It would make a lovely full time home or even a possible B&B. Rarely does a home become available with such magnificent details and moldings throughout. The shell motif over the Chippendale front door, heavy crown molding, wainscoting in the living room, broken pediment design over the fireplace. Chippendale railing gracing the staircase, deep set windows and thick mullions are a few more of the classic features. This home is in immaculate condition with a garden that is the envy of many. A spacious Chippendale screened porch with soapstone flooring and a brick patio lead to meticulously maintained and restored authentic formal English garden complete with a beautiful wrought iron fountain. A thoroughly updated home of today with the classic features of yesterday. Main floor offers a formal living room with adjoining dining room, a breakfast room, kitchen, den and bathroom. Kitchen offers white cabinets, marble counters, artisan ceramic sink, stainless appliances, and tray ceiling. Upstairs three bedrooms, a study and two bathrooms await, with a bonus room over the garage as well. The finished basement is reached by two different staircases that offer china storage and led to a recreation room with kitchenette, bedroom and bath.
This home is Located in the Town of Bedford, within walking distance to restaurants, shops, grocery stores & located within a mile of the local Hospital.
