Property Description

VIRTUAL TOUR ATTACHED. Whether you’re lying in the hammock under the magnolia trees and listening to the nearby pond fountain or descending the grand curved staircase leading to formal living and dining rooms, every feature of this stately Frank Lockwood home is impressive. Slate roof, original quarter-sawn oak hardwood floors throughout the main levels and four fireplaces in all. Leaded glass French doors overlooking the fountain, screened porch with blue stone floor, charming under-the-stairs powder room, octagonal breakfast room with built in corner cabinets, expansive kitchen filled with light, and a cozy, quiet library with gas fireplace are some features of the first floor. Five bedrooms, two of which could be used as master suites, bathrooms with original pedestal sinks, and a large balcony overlooking the jasmine-draped pergola are found on the second floor. And listed square footage doesn’t include the heated and cooled third floor (1,153 sq ft) spanning the length of the house with room for a pool table and home gym. The 1.3 acre grounds with four garden “rooms” and sprinkler system on well offer privacy and serenity while still within walking distance of shops and restaurants. Down the bricked driveway is a detached garage with two spaces and the old “chauffeur’s quarters” useful for storage or potentially a studio, workspace, or even guest house conversion. The options are endless with this property. With all the charm of a historic home approaching one hundred years, this property is clean and move in ready. Must be seen in person to appreciate the craftsmanship and scale of this amazing home. Purchaser to verify school zones and square footage.
