Built in 1918 by Walter H. Thomas, this 7 bedroom home features original linden and walnut wood paneled walls, leaded glass, slate flooring, random-width hardwood floors, and multiple fireplaces throughout. In the right wing lies a half bath and a gorgeous study with ample room for books. Connected to the sun-filled living room, there is a spacious sunroom surrounded by windows showing off the well-maintained 1.58 acre lot. To the left of the entrance after you pass the dining room, complimented by a wall of windows and beautiful crown molding, you find the cozy family room with beautiful paneling, a large bay window, recessed lighting throughout, and doors to the backyard terrace. The huge kitchen is connected to the dining room and features a breakfast area, two large islands, granite countertops, a butler's pantry, custom cabinetry with extensive storage, double ovens, a Sub-Zero refrigerator and freezer, and a Jenn-Air 6-burner stovetop - a cook's kitchen! In addition to the main hardwood staircase, there is a secondary staircase off of the kitchen. The master suite is located on the second floor and has an ensuite bathroom, fireplace, and sitting room. There are 3 more spacious rooms, 3 other bathrooms, 2 of which were newly renovated, an office, and a billiards room.
