Total 3,458 sf with 4-5 BRs, including main level option; elegant wide-board floors; 3 fireplaces; plaster walls; gracious foyer with spiral staircase plus back stairway; main level library with floor to ceiling built-ins; expansive living room with French doors to sunroom featuring hand crafted tiles; charming front porch & covered side porch; custom shutters; generous closets throughout including elegant MBR suite with custom shoe closet; new gravel drive (2019); plus two car detached garage with cupola.
