Architectural Detail

Designed by a prominent local artist with an eye for unique quality and detail, the home’s features include 3 chimneys of antique brick, vintage molding throughout the home, leaded glass windows, decorative glass transoms, stained glass, post and beam framing in the Living Room and Master Bedroom from an 1800’s Maine barn, two fireplaces built with antique limestone from a Boston church, carved stone reclaimed from the Woolworth’s building in Boston, beams and woodwork in the Dining Room salvaged from a local barn, plaster coated walls, tiled decorative display shelves, dramatic rounded dormers and ceilings, and so much more.

Garden Guest Cottage

Approved for rental as a Country Inn, the cottage complements the main house’s style and comfort.  With wide floor boards, plastered walls, custom molding, oak paneling preserved from a turn-of-the century Connecticut estate, hand-crafted cabinetry, granite countertops, accent lighting, and top of the line appliances, this is a truly idyllic retreat. The large dining table was hewn from local timber.  The bedroom features a cathedral ceiling, and the tiled bathroom has a pedestal sink and a claw foot tub.  The walls of antique leaded glass windows provide views over the grounds that will soothe in any season.
