Wavy glass windows were restored and fitted with new storm windows and screens. New windows are from Pella’s architectural line.Five working fireplaces have beautiful restored mantles. Crown moldings, trim and wood finishes have been painted or refinished, retaining the refined aura found only in well-built historic homes.

Brand new state-of-the-art materials and finishes were incorporated into the restoration, complementing the fine historic details. A classic white kitchen, with top-of-the-line appliances, was designed to retain the character of the house. All three new baths have floor-to-ceiling Italian tile with radiant floor heat to ensure present day comfort. New mechanical systems include hydro-air HVAC with a high-efficiency gas boiler, central air conditioning, an indirect-fired hot water tank and a 20KW generator. A new addition to the kitchen contains a laundry room and plenty of storage, and provides a convenient side entrance from the garage.

The exterior is in excellent condition. A newly-built porch, with Doric columns supporting the covered areas, is a perfect place to entertain. Inspired by the original, it now wraps around the house from North to South taking in the views of the large private yard with specimen trees, gardens and old stone walls.

Recreated with maintenance-free materials, the Widow’s Walk sits tall and proud on the roof to savor the distant views of the harbor or to enjoy a sunrise or sunset. The property sits on a .62 acre lot, and has a large two-car garage with plenty of storage and workspace.
