The curved stone steps lead into the gracious entry hallway, which opens to the formal living room and dining rooms, separated by a gracious arch, each with wood burning fireplaces, and deeply articulated moldings. The dining room offers two china cabinets, each of which opens on hinges to reveal hidden storage. A full length glass door leads to the walled brick garden with whimsical fish pond.
