Nestled in the Village of Stowe, this nicely appointed home is listed on the National Registry of Historic Places. Built in 1860, the home has been tastefully renovated and still maintains the charm of wide-plank floors and 12 panel windows. An expansive deck on the back of the home provides a summer hideaway for relaxing or barbecuing on the gas grill. In winter, the living room provides a cozy place to enjoy the open fire.
