Why you’ll love this home:
Extensive outdoor living spaces
Original details throughout
This stunning stone home on one of Homeland’s prettiest streets will enchant you from the moment you set foot on the wide flagstone pathway to the arched wood door. With its stone exterior, pitched roofline, multiple gables and gorgeous casement windows, this is a stunning work of Tudor Revival architecture, and was used as one of only nine Contributing Buildings when Homeland was listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The home lives up to the promise of gracious living, with nine-foot ceilings on the first floor, spacious rooms, and large casement windows with deep windowsills throughout. Original details include oak and heart pine floors, crown molding, Ogee arched openings between main level rooms, nickel hardware on solid birch doors, and wrought iron railing on open staircase to third floor. Updates have remained sensitive to the original design, including seamlessly incorporating the original butler’s pantry into the new granite and stainless kitchen, and custom building a new oak front storm door to match the original arched door. Pride of ownership shows even in small details such as a vintage doorbell, copper exterior lamp and mailbox, and kitchen hardware that mimics that found in the old butler’s pantry. Admittedly the owners favorite room, the first floor study has flagstone floors, stone walls, walls of casement windows and original steel French doors to the bluestone patio and large, level backyard that is made extremely private by the border mature Arborvitae trees.
