The home was originally built in 1921, but extensive renovations has brought the space up to date for modern times while maintaining the home's historic character. The estate includes a three-story main residence and a charming carriage-turned-guest house.
The home's original door, with unique crescent-moon window, was retained but given a new finish with a pleasing gold stain that permits the wood grain to show. Charcoal gray trim and new custom metal railing offer tastefully subtle touches that make the house stand out.
