A True Work of Art

The abundance of windows bathes the interiors in natural light, creating an atmosphere of warmth and serenity.
Take the VR tour
Throughout the home, refurbished and repurposed fixtures and decor tell their own stories. From porcelain-topped chimney caps sourced from England to powder-coated antique cast iron spindle panels once part of a church staircase, each detail adds a touch of history and charm. The wood cook stove, refurbished from the governor's mansion in Pennsylvania, takes pride of place in the kitchen. Every room is adorned with unique elements that add to the home's character and heritage.
Additional features include a built-in generator, plaster walls instead of sheetrock, a first-floor built-in speaker system, and a captivating spiral staircase that adds a touch of elegance.
