This historic home is full of charm and detail, while offering the space and conveniences desired today.  Built in 1889 as the residence of renewed architect John F. Wing, this Romanesque/Queen Anne home has been beautifully preserved and restored.  The covered front porch has noteworthy stone work, beautiful iron rails, lush garden surrounds and is simply a perfect place to gather.  Double wooden front doors open to a vestibule with stunning tile work, and from there the wood/leaded glass doors open to a large foyer with a sitting nook.   The arched stained glass windows, period specific hardware, wood floors and open staircase make this foyer simply amazing.  

Solid wood pocket doors, with exposed wheels on tracks above, opens to the dining room and living room.  Both have beautiful fireplaces and are joined by a walk-through topped with a stained glass window taking the shape of this curved wall.  A large window seat provides adds charm and function to the living room.  The family room features built in cabinetry and bookshelves and a great stained glass door overlooking the back yard and carriage house.  The kitchen is spacious and the added space of the breakfast area add to the nice, open feel of this area.  Stairs off the kitchen lead to the unfinished lower level that has intriguing brick walls, areas of untapped potential, and an additional staircase leading up to the back yard.  The main level bathroom has a sliding door, so much in keeping with today’s trends and a built-in cabinet.  The sink is under the niche of the stairs, in an area much like today’s mudroom.

Partially open staircase leads to a beautifully bright upper level with large, bright rooms.  Not to miss features include gas-wall sconces and other beautiful light fixtures, fully functioning transoms, quaint and unusually sized windows, stunning door hardware, intricate vent covers, a window seat and a massive walk-in closet!  Upper level laundry room is a great feature and so convenient for these upper level rooms.

The oversized 2-bay carriage house has a finished summer suite above.  This suite has a large living area with big windows and skylights, a full kitchen and bathroom.  It, too, is a beautifully bright space.
