In the same family for over 80 years, this home is an opportunity to own a piece of history in one of the regions most ificant architectural developments.

Professor Hugh Morrison, architectural authority and retired professor of architecture at Dartmouth College, has said of the houses on the ridge: "As a row and counting the setting, this is the finest group of Federal-style houses in the United States. The front stairway ascends to a gentle curve at the second floor, perhaps in tribute to other homes on the Ridge with a similar detail.
The first floor has two good size double bedrooms and a third single bedroom also. Across the courtyard there is a garage which has been converted into a utility houwes which also doubles as a games room.
From the kitchen there are bi-folding doors, which lead to the South Westerly facing courtyard. The grounds are exquisite, with lush gardens, mature trees, walkways, expansive lawns, and a wonderful barn.
This room expanse has six bedrooms and five full baths, a large and functional kitchen, and a lovely family room at the back of the ell that serves as the hub of the less formal spaces. There is also an under stairs WC. High ceilings, original wood floors, detailed moldings, and formal spaces hearken to a time of elegance and a slower pace of life.
