Very amazed, I haven't ever seen Greek Revival and gothic detailing combined like that.

Beautiful house, but do I detect some water issues with the old brick retaining walls? :wink:

Every square inch looks like it has had attention. It is nice to see something in a complete state of REPAIR. Thank you for the photo tour.

Even the fence and wall are in great shape. Notice two different columns used. Ionic on the lower level and Corintian on the top.

Very nice storm windows too. Love seeing those. Cost effective, great energy savings, sound reduction and & protection combined. How can you lose?


I do see one brick on that walking path out of place. Unacceptable! :mrgreen:

They say if you have to ask the price you can't afford it! :wink:
