Now beautiful inside and out

renovation-week

This 19th century great lady had seen better days until her recent renovation. Old materials have been thoughtfully repurposed and reused: when a new foundation was poured, the old stones from the original foundation were reused into a fireplace and a decorative wall in the lower level. (And now, the finished lower level includes a wine room, gym/media room, sauna, and living area with that fireplace.) Original ceiling beams were used to create the beautiful double-height kitchen, and there are lovely original fireplaces in many of the main rooms. In all, there are seven bedrooms and 5.5 baths in the main house, plus a 900 square foot pool house with with kitchen, additional bedroom and full bath. There's also a large barn-style garage on the 0.81-acre spot, along with a gunite pool and spa. Asking price for all this is $8.495M, which sounds a lot, given the property last sold for $1.625M a year ago, but of course, this was an expensive renovation.
