It has spectacular and unique roof lines and the quality craftsmanship of the mid-1800s, while providing modern conveniences and upgrades for the best of both worlds.

Just outside the carriage house is a comfy sitting area where you can have your morning coffee or enjoy a glass of wine on a warm spring or chilly fall day while watching the sun rise or set.
