There's pretty much nothing we don't adore about this Italianate mansion. From what we understand, it was originally built in 1796 by John Hulbert, presumably the son of the Revolutionary hero who designed an early stars-and-stripes flag, for a whaling captain, and, we assume, remodeled later in the Italianate style. It was once the "Summer White House" of Chester A. Arthur. We love that the garden is so private and secluded, yet the house is right in the heart of the village. And presumably someone else did too, since the house is now in contract after a few months on the market. There are six bedrooms, four bathrooms, in 3000sf, set on 0.34 acres of land with a gunite pool and charming brick patio. Last asking price was $3.9M.
