Stone 2 floors on the historical register has various updates

While the formal entry is centered on a stone walkway from the town sidewalk, the causal entry is through a door leading out to the courtyard from the terrace’s stone patio to the screened-in porch. The courtyard has an original well pump, cellar doors and a stone wall which frames the garden beds. PHOTO CONTRIBUTED BY KATHY TYLER

While the formal entry is centered on a stone walkway from the town sidewalk, the causal entry is through a door leading out to the courtyard from the terrace’s stone patio to the screened-in porch. The courtyard has an original well pump, cellar doors and a stone wall which frames the garden beds.

From the screened porch, entry is directly into the dining room, which is an extension of the original stone house. A fireplace is surrounded by stone and brick, and the same exposed stone wall is found in the adjoining kitchen. A vaulted ceiling gives the kitchen a spacious feel, and knotty wood cabinetry fills the three exterior walls and surrounds appliances that include a cooktop, wall ovens, dishwasher, microwave and oven. a refrigerator. A double sink sits under a window that offers a view of the garage and the secret garden.

From the dining room to the front of the house are the formal spaces, including a living room and lounge. The formal foyer with open staircase to the second level divides the two front rooms. The original stone fireplace is the centerpiece of the living room and has an arched opening, stone hearth and hand carved wooden mantel and surround. To one side, a built-in dresser features corrugated glass panel doors and turn-of-the-century hardware.

The living room could be a first floor bedroom or a home office as there is a closet and half bathroom, hidden away in a folding door closet. The two double-doored spaces flank another stone fireplace with hand-carved mantel.

Three bedrooms and two full bathrooms are upstairs. One bedroom has a stone fireplace flanked by built-in bookcases and wardrobes. The guest bathroom is located just off the stairs and has a walk-in shower, vanity unit and built-in linen closets.
