This property is for someone who knows and appreciates a magnificent antique house and gardens.The seller has maintained the house to preserve the original craftsmanship and to make it a wonderful house for modern summer living.

Many of the first floor windows, with original antique glass, have been rebuilt in the past two years, with storm windows added for energy efficiency. The kitchen has a professional Viking six burner propane stove, black granite counters, and brand new high capacity laundry appliances.
