Doc Samson's Old House-Home description

Enter into this 24x10 Fireplaced Foyer, you will view the the grand staircase. Through the pocket doors is the parlor with coffered paneling over the restored fireplace and adjoining bookcases, complete with stained glass and lighting. The formal dining room offers built-ins and a window seat...the swinging door leads to a Victorian style kitchen fully equipped with all the modern conveniences. The rear staircase brings you to the original maids' quarters. And that's just part of the first floor.
This multi-gabled Queen Anne was divided into 2 units in the early 1900's to accommodate a doctor's office. At present, this business space is home to an architectural-design firm. This space can easily be converted back to the original square footage, to an apartment or in-law.
Mechanically, this historic home is completely updated with 200 amp.service electrical circuit breakers, 3 gas boilers with 1 boiler heating the 1st fl.of the main house, with boiler 2 heating the 2nd fl.of the main house and boiler 3 heating the office space....the meandering stone/granite foundation wall in the basement creates a series of rooms currently used as the "wood" room, the paint room , the storage room, and the workshop room.
This grand home has 13 rooms, 2.5 bthrms.,7 fireplaces,a private backyard,107 frontage,and a 2-car detach. garage with large loft.
