A Bedroom / Den with cathedral ceiling and En Suite Bath and a conveniently located Powder Room complete the first level living space.

When it’s time to retire at the end of the evening, you’ll proceed up the staircase to the second level where a galley hallway enhanced by original period details guides you to the Master Bedroom Suite and 3 additional spacious bedrooms with En Suite Baths –a conveniently located laundry room, an Office with an adjacent Sitting Room, a large linen closet and access to the third floor. Luxury surrounds you in the Master Suite, impeccably designed with cathedral ceilings and large windows on 3 sides, bringing the outside in. Two walk-in closets with custom shelving as well as built-in dressers, an adjacent dressing area and a spa-like Master Bath featuring a granite double sink vanity, stall shower and whirlpool tub with private views of the property complete the suite.
