Also on this level is a first floor room with full bath that can be used as a family room or guest suite. A powder room for guests is also located at the rear. Front and rear stairs lead to a grand second floor with front octagonal sunroom, three large bedrooms and a hall bath. The spacious master suite has its own bath and closet . A rear staircase leads to an expansive third floor with open play and work areas, a bedroom and a full bath and huge walk-in closet. Outside, a deck off the kitchen leads to an expansive, very private walled garden. A brick patio at the side of the yard is perfect for entertaining and relaxing. Off street parking for three cars exists on the south side. Winner of the Preservation Society's Carolopolis Awards for excellence in Historic Preservation.
