    I enjoy seeing an agent that will make a video of a listing, multi-million dollar homes usually don’t even receive this special treat.

    The bookcases are likely not original but it’s a nice feature for books or collectibles. Do you think the front door side panels were really for guns? Or shutters?

    I’m always interested to see how old homes implement modern conveniences in the kitchen or adding a water closet.

    Built for merchant Chauncey Newell Shipman (1813-1893) who moved on to Chicago before the Civil War and the home was later owned by attorney Harris W. Patrick.

    Lovely house…..love the box beams and the pier mirror is fantastic. Not sure I’d leave ALL the glass-front cupboards, but I’d sure use many of them.

    This house looked like it belonged in the South was my first thought and what a handsome exterior. Inside the house was really gorgeous. The Soapstone fireplace seemed a little discordant but that might have been because of my own expectations. As for the book cases, I’m in heaven. I must have donated 10-15 boxes of books because I ran out of space for mine so to have enough room to put them all in would be fabulous. I would strip the paint off of them and then the rich colors of the spines would pop. I made a dining room library in our first home and it was really magical. Imagine a mahogany dining room table with china and linens and lit candles in an old library. It was like a scene out of an old book. I hope the new owner will keep them. This is definitely a livable classic.

    I wonder if that *button* the realtor mentioned on the master fireplace surround was in fact a staff call button.

      oh yeah, i’m sure. Though I wish they photographed it. I think its to the left of the gray fireplace. I can barely make it out. Usually buttons were battery operated but there could also be a wire pull or slide switch which will manually ring a bell in the kitchen, or servants area.

    It is a beautiful home with lots of original details. Love the floors, but I would just wish there were some photos of the bathrooms and more of the kitchen. The exterior is exquisite.
