Modern renovations give this historic house comfort and style, without compromising its charm and character. Natural light streams through fabulous windows on all sides and highlights the custom millwork, wood-beam ceiling and hickory floors. The kitchen, with custom Alder cabinetry, slate flooring, range hood, wine cooler and center island, serves as the hub for the main floor’s living space. Four wood-burning fireplaces, insulated windows and heated floors mean cozy winters. Guests will feel at home in the partially finished, walk-out basement, which includes a bedroom, living area, bathroom and kitchen, as well as storage. The screened-in porch overlooks an in-ground pool and patio, and an additional office space above the detached garage is perfect for telecommuting. Additional amenities in this beautiful home include walk-in closets, wet bar, in-ground sprinkler system and fencing around the property.
