Brick paved private parking at the front entrance provides easy access to your retreat after a long day at the office and invites your guests to enter the solid mahogany front door, surrounded by patina covered copper gutters and downspout into a home reflective of colonial era Old Town. Upon entry, early 19th century style raised panel wainscoting topped by used brick and colonial crown molding greets the eye in the spacious slate floored foyer. Antique doorknobs and locking plates entice you to open the 6-glass pane French doors to explore the ground floor bedroom and adjoining powder room.
