More About This HouseA unique front gate constructed from the original mahogany horse stalls welcomes you. As you enter this spectacular home you are greeted by a large double foyer with generous closets. To the left is a bright and sunny three season room which opens to an expansive covered porch along the entire front of the home.
The ground level, originally where the carriages were housed, boasts a grand 33 x 37 sq. ft. Family room adorned with a tin ceiling and vintage one of a kind genuine ship's wheel light fixture. A TRULY UNIQUE feature of this home, you will find 4 of the original 6 horse stalls complete with preserved iron works and millwork off the family room. This tremendous space is perfect for relaxing or entertaining with versatile setup options. A wall of pocket doors allows for the stall area to be on full display or naturally divided from the family room.
From the stalls stroll toward the hideaway sanctuary enhanced with original woodwork and rack fixtures to the second kitchen, full bath across from a lovely historical dumbwaiter, and bedroom. This section of the home can be accessed through a private entrance making it perfect for an in-law or special guest.

Further down the hall is the primary kitchen featuring an updated galley design with granite countertops, farmhouse sink, subway tile backsplash, ample cabinetry and walk-in pantry. This flows into the expansive 2 story living room and dining area which features a wood burning fireplace, original hardwood floors, and beautiful beamed ceiling. Much care was taken to preserve many original elements and new windows were added to provide abundant natural light and warmth.
From the living room, step down into the inviting sunroom which exits to a spacious deck overlooking the private fenced in backyard. The deck can also be accessed from the kitchen providing an excellent setting for hosting gatherings with family and friends. Separate staircases connect both the dining area and sunroom to the first level.
