    View the virtual tour, linked up top, to see the whole home. What a beautiful job they did with that kitchen!

    Great kitchen, and original windows too! A++. This is a good example of restraint in an older home, and it shows. This is how all old homes should be done, tread lightly, respect the architecture & resist the urge to put your personal “stamp” on a beautiful old building. That can be done with color, furniture, & accessories. It amazes me how people think they always need to be renovating, construction, done well, it meant to be somewhat permanent, not like changing clothes. Timeless elegance. Bravo!

    I get excited when i see virtual tour, it gives you so much more detail that the photos dont give. You also get the flow of the rooms. The windows are amazing. The wood stairs to the 3rd floor are amazing. I could go on and on..

    I love this house. The decorating, the rugs, the furniture and everything else. The gardens are wonderful. What a beautiful house. Only fault I can find it that it is in the far north.

    I agree with everyone – what a great kitchen. And nice choice to take pics last year when leaves were out. While I love seeing winter shots I think having a green yard helps potential buyers see how the house looks in the summer.

    Love it and would have no problems whatsoever with the winters – plus you aren’t far from lots of lakes and forests.

    As if the house wasn’t grand enough, then there are the grounds. The new owners sure are lucky!
