    What a hidden gem! The details that went into this house are amazing. Such a shame that it has fallen into such disarray like this. Hope that the current owner is providing repairs and taking better care of such a beautiful property!

    W.D. is/was my grandfather. The property is being restored by a gentleman in the best sense of the appellation.
