The earliest part of the home, now in the center, was built in 1835 . . . but the grander Greek Revival front section was added in 1850 with unexpected charming Italianate details on the front gallery façade, The 1850 interior has an elegant entrance hall painted with faux marble blocks and impressive 18’ x 20’ parlors on either side. The fifty foot front gallery spans the five bay exterior.

There is a spacious master bedroom complex of two bedrooms, extensive closets, and a huge bathroom with heated marble floors on the main floor.

The main rooms of the 1835 house now house the dining room and the music room; and overlooking the large grounds to the rear is an inviting family room and stairway to the cozy lower floor den, wine cellar/game room, and two guest rooms with a shared bath.
