Enter from the side door with covered porch into a sun soaked formal sitting room with hardwood flooring and wood milled surrounding fireplace, over sized front bay windows, perfect for a settee, morning coffee and warm sunshine. Notice the curved Palladian style window, and front door with its original iron locks, keys and knobs. See the dramatic column structure with the built in storage below.
