    Description

    "The Benjamin F. Downing House" is a classic but modern Victorian. You enter the house through a custom mahogany door into the vestibule which accesses the great room which is centered around a wood burning fireplace. The kitchen has a bead board ceiling which gives extra definition to the space, granite countertops, stainless steel appliances and island that seats four comfortably. The wet bar, with wine refrigerator and custom pantry makes keeping yourself organized a breeze. The pine floors with their patina of age balanced with custom wood replacement windows, lovely lighting fixtures, central air and on demand gas heat guarantees that your house is both comfortable and efficient year round. On the lower level are finished spaces that currently serve as the fourth bedroom with sitting room or one could make the house a five bedroom home. You also have a kitchenette with quartz countertops and subzero refrigerator that serves as prep space for the outside dining. On the second floor, the master bedroom has California Closet built-ins, and a bathroom with double sinks. Off the hall are custom cabinets, sitting areas, and a laundry room that transforms the mundane chores into a pleasure. The third floor has either one or two more bedrooms and a sitting room with distant water views. The blue stone garden lined with mature trees lit with underground lighting, a natural gas fireplace & koi pond -that adds that lovely water feature- creates a complete sensory experience.
