Description: The 3 original fireplaces are the centerpiece of the house – one in the den, one in the living room and a large fireplace in the dining room. The dining room is functional and elegant at the same time. The table can seat 6-8 easily.
Off the dining room find a half bath, a bedroom with a twin bed and the two living areas – the den and the living room. The living room is more formal without being stuffy – this is a perfect place to come to after dinner or entertaining. The den is casual – this is a great place to read, relax, play games on the large coffee table or just take a nap. Each room has the benefit of lots of natural light thanks to a multitude of large windows.

It is a large kitchen with picture windows overlooking the house’s acreage and beyond. This is the place where everyone will gather.
Upstairs, find 3 bedrooms and a full bath. There are two master bedrooms – each with a queen bed. The third bedroom has a twin bed. The first master is more modern with skylights and views – the second feels more traditional.
