The quality of residential family life you will experience in this 1840's Colonial home on this favored center town location, is difficult to imagine without going back in time. The architectural features and craftsmanship are comforting in their endurance and the spaces are designed to work for both privacy and connection for all ages, and their guests. Likewise, the small garden with flowering trees and shrubs offers various opportunities to enjoy the natural world in surprising seclusion. The bustle of Main St. and the Town Green events including the weekly Farmer's Market are only 2 short blocks away, as are the Art Cinema, the Jones Library, and a wide variety of places to eat. Connection is inevitable when you use your feet instead of wheels and both you and the world will benefit from it.The lovely open foyer with window seat welcomes you home. The open stringer staircase is flooded with light from two leaded glass windows at the landing, a double staircase to the second floor.
