    What a stunning home. The woodwork is just gorgeous. What a dream to live in a home like that. I hope it finds some wonderful new owners.

    This home is simply gorgeous inside and out. I would change the kitchen counters and flooring, then move right in and gaze at the woodwork.

    Great house! I really like the very tasteful, profoundly horizontal, Roman-ish, Indiana, Bedford stone block patio at the back! What a coup to also have the basement fireplace, (and NOT the originals upstairs), done in the same manner! That back patio is beyond special; and so beautifully tied in with the original house by using the same application on the exterior of the enclosed porch and approach. Man.

    Another great, rather stylistically modest, A&C house with some fine, if delightfully minimal, original, finish, decorative details. Real shame about the painted pantry /scullery tho.

      My old home, directly behind this house, had the same backyard stoned fireplace and retaining wall. Also a flagstone patio. It was beautiful! The garage apartment of this house looked down right into my backyard, so it was kind of like being in a fishbowl, but the 5 years we lived there they only had someone living there once, so we kind of lucked out on that.
      My husband built the most adorable potting shed out of vintage French windows off to the side of the patio…we had a drainboard sink…I hated to leave it. A few years later the buyers put the house back on the market…they tore down the potting shed AND the limestone fireplace and put an above ground pool on the flagstone patio 😲. I know it was their house to do as they wanted. But there was a huge side yard ( the lot was a 3/4 of a city block) that a pool could have been put on). I just felt sad that the beautiful patio and fireplace Wasn’t kept original.
