Built in 1903, the house has a façade that is a fusion of architectural influences: The 3rd flooring has a few dormers, the central and largest of which is in the Dutch Revival model. And instantly down two stories from that dormer are a pair of Tuscan columns that keep sentry on the front porch and shelter a entrance door topped by a pediment. Flanking the dwelling, in great symmetry, are a 3-time porch and a porte cochère, each framed with white railings.

In this expansive space (the grand piano in the corner appears to be lonely), the sole heat source is a pink brick hearth, the sibling of the a person on the other aspect of the wall.

Recessed lighting, three pendant lights with bulbous world shades, and home windows with wooden shutters convey light to the room. A door leads to the backyard.
The next flooring holds a few bedrooms and a total tub. The latter offers a double vanity with an antique visual appeal and a quartz counter that has an extension for folding the clothing pulled from the washer and dryer nearby. Other highlights involve a soaking tub and a glass-enclosed shower with a subway tile surround and a black ceramic tile floor. The flooring in the relaxation of the tub is also black ceramic tile, but white subway tile rises halfway up the walls.
The operator bedroom features a customized wander-in closet, a ceiling admirer, skinny crown molding, four windows, and ample space for a king-sized mattress, a really like seat, and two chairs (247 sq. toes). Of the other two bedrooms, the greater arrives with double closets and three home windows. The smaller sized bedroom is established up as an workplace.
