Property Description

Nestled between Lincoln Drive and Cross Lane, is a French farmhouse designed by H. Louis Duhring in 1907.

With original arts-and-crafts details intact, the main living spaces retain their rustic character. Spectacular original stairs. The generous living room offers a huge fieldstone fireplace, seven large windows overlooking the gorgeous grounds, and glass-paned doors leading to a sun porch. High
ceilings, original pine floors, original oak beams and woodwork throughout. Bright kitchen (stainless steel and granite) with big windows and a door out to a secluded slate terrace, private and lush. Pantry closet, butler pantry. Breakfast room. Bright, beamed dining room. 4 spacious bedrooms plus Family Room plus Office with 3.5 baths. Includes a very large master bedroom with dressing room.
