Set beneath towering oaks, this palatial brick beauty is located just steps from Main Street, yet is embraced by over 2 sequestered, idyllic acres. Embodying the symmetry and elegance of the Greek Revival, its century-long history is evident in numerous architectural refinements; from the columned façade with cornice dentil detailing to the handsome fanlight above its front door, from the rare and precious quarter-sawn tiger oak flooring, to its fluted arches and heavy plaster crown moldings. The formal living and dining rooms are majestically proportioned, with a bay window and woodburning fireplace gracing the former. Retrospective elements including built-in cabinets, original doors and hardware, telephone nook, knotty pine paneling, and plate shelves enhance the den, service hall, breakfast nook and kitchen, while three full bathrooms are charmingly decorated with 1940s fixtures, marble thresholds and tile. Four large bedrooms have cedar lined closets, with the principal bedroom being particularly spacious, and having a dressing room and second wood-burning fireplace. The magazine-worthy formal garden of approximately 1.5 acres is composed of outdoor “rooms” on several terraces, with varying themes. Circular, elliptical, square and rectangular lawns are reached by a series of grass and flagstone paths and brick steps, interspersed with luxuriant herbaceous borders, a rambling water feature with bridge, secret gardens, immaculately trimmed hedges, and lissome arbors and trellises. A flagstone patio with outdoor fireplace is situated near the house, with ample space for dining, entertaining, or relaxing. The two-car garage with attached workshop is accessed by a concrete ribbon lane, overhung with an allée of graceful crêpe myrtles, while a contiguous circular concrete driveway offers ample off-street parking. An attic and full basement with windows and exterior door provides plentiful storage, and options for a further bedroom, bathroom, and living area.
