Every once in awhile a very special home becomes available… This treasured Georgian Colonial is sited on an expansive, flat double lot and is available for the first time since 1986.

Fantastic indoor~outdoor flow leading to the backyard which is large enough to add a pool to and still have an outdoor wedding! This is the kind of home memories are made in.
