The living room boasts a wood burning fireplace, original built-ins, and two sets of French doors leading to an outdoor covered patio area with an additional outdoor fireplace.

The kitchen and butler~s pantry with its quality original built in cabinetry have been updated with beautiful granite countertops and backsplash(2019), updated appliances, and new fixtures. This part of the home was originally the private quarters historically used for in-house staff that could easily be utilized as an au pair /in-law suite and features a back stair case to a private area with a bedroom, sitting room, and updated full bath. The 2nd floor continues with 2 additional guest rooms, one with private half bath, a cozy sitting area with large fire place, and doors that lead to large balcony.
