Two handsome chimneys serve the bedroom and living room fireplaces, with a separate chimney for the furnace. 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 living. Original plaster walls and ceilings have been preserved. Wide plank floors in the dining room are original to the house. Many of the first floor windows, with original antique glass, have been rebuilt with storm windows added for energy efficiency.
