The fully fenced garden is pet friendly, private and serene. The lot is nearly twice the size of the average lot in Old Town which offers the potential of expansion or a possible carriage house/garage for off-street parking. The home also offers the perfect balance of modern conveniences and historic character. Some of the more notable historic features include wavy glass windows, original broad plank wood floors, hand-hewn beams, crown moldings, multiple built-in floor to ceiling bookcases and oil cloth floor cover and French Doors to patio off the dining room. Four elegant vintage hand-carved mantels and four fireplaces - two with vintage firebacks are in the main living spaces of the home.
