Just off Centre Street, and down the road from the Parley Vale Preserve green space, this elegant colonial-style home has period details and new additions to love. Inside, renovations are seamless, with custom millwork and flooring that echo the home’s original design. With multiple living spaces, the library has bold blue shelving and the sunken family room has herringbone patterned slate floors. A dual sided wood-burning fireplace connects to the dining room. In the kitchen, marble countertops, oversized windows, and a Thermador oven and stove are highlights. The backyard has a tiered mahogany deck, a stone patio, a potting shed, and a koi pond. A recent price drop indicates a hope to sell before the holiday season, which in these halls, would be magnificent.
