Take note of the "Mansard" roof which was a design change of the roofline in the 1800's. Operable shutters and deep cornices are period details that define the era of this home. Upon entering the front door, you are greeted by a stairwell that ascends from the basement level up to the third floor. Simple, yet elegant railings and wainscoting make up this area (take note of the pendant drops of the stairwell). Heart of pine original floors are in many of the rooms within the home. The first floor bedroom was once the formal drawing room of the home. In this room, candlelight molding envelopes the space and is also repeated in the mantlepiece with an overmantel of "Museum Quality". On the other side of the hallway you will find a large double room with a classic revival cornice and fretwork, elegant wainscoting and other period details that mimic features within the home. Another mantel with overmantel copies the details of the trim. Other features on the main level include a galley style kitchen with gas range top and double oven.
