The primary residence is a testament to tasteful preservation, where delicate historic features seamlessly blend with modern enhancements. The interiors are artfully presented, offering a sense of spaciousness and light, combining every aspect of the stately Federal colonial with its elegant living room and dining room while maintaining a cozy intimate country ambiance, for at the heart of this home, you’ll discover an expansive open-plan Chef’s kitchen with two walk-in pantries, a laundry and family room – a superb space that effortlessly caters to both culinary pursuits and social gatherings. Out of view of the main house, a charming early 20th century cottage supplies additional accommodation options.
