Exceptional elegance and extraordinary provenance abound in this truly special, architect designed beauty! Located within the gates of coveted Fremont Place, the dramatic entry offers warm woods, a remarkably stunning stained glass window and gleaming parquet floors. The grand scale living room boasts gleaming paneling, a decorative plaster ceiling, intricately carved wood mantle on the fireplace, handsome mitered hardwood floors and glistening leaded windows. The intimate den creates a cozy setting for reading and relaxing. The formal dining room with carved fireplace mantle is an entertainer’s delight allowing Thanksgiving seating for 20! The charming updated kitchen with center island is the perfect complement to the style and comfort of this wonderful home.

There are numerous examples of masterful carving in the mantles, the balustrades and staircase. Upstairs are 5 spacious bedrooms and 4 baths.
