Rich with country colors and pine, this 1977-built West Plymouth home was designed as an antique reproduction with a traditional curved ‘bow roof’, also called a ‘ship’s bottom roof’ or a ‘whaleback roof.’ Roofs like this were time consuming to build, so originals are hard to find. Inside, the home has a center fireplace that can be seen from the living room and kitchen. Wide-plank floors and wood ceilings are found throughout the house. Custom built-ins are a highlight, including graduated shelving underneath the staircase. The traditional layout has an open kitchen with a breakfast area, and three bedrooms and a full bath on the second floor. Various outbuildings are part of the property, including the garage, which was converted to an office space and workshop, a bunkhouse, and a shed. Multiple patios and a pool are also a part of this .46-acre lot.
