You’d never know it by taking a tour, but this twelve-room English Cottage-style home was originally built in 1929, and it’s retained much character through restoration projects. On the first floor, the open kitchen has a farmhouse sink, glass-paned cabinetry, and a breakfast area that connects to a patio for outdoor dining. The family room has cathedral ceilings and a skylight, and the living room has a fireplace (one of four.) Throughout the home, find hardwood floors, built-in shelving and cabinetry, and standout beamed ceilings with recessed lighting filling the space. The second floor has four bedrooms, with the master featuring a fireplace and a spa bath with a steam shower and tub. The lower level has a home theater, and an additional bedroom and bath.
