People passing through the Western Section take notice of this fine Colonial, not for its imposing size, but for its pleasing symmetry and gracious boxwood-lined lawn. Should any be lucky enough to step inside, they would be stunned to discover an interior just as spacious as any neighboring home with every detail, from doorknobs to bathtubs, painstakingly restored or carefully sourced to complement the original 1915 residence. A two-phase project with architect T. Jeffrey Clarke at the helm breathed new life into the original house, then vastly expanded the footprint out the back with the quality of Shulte Restorations work on full display. Uncommon nine-over-one windows were stripped and restored to smooth working order and then custom matched in the rear wing. Amish-crafted tiger maple cabinetry was finished on-site for a flawless fit in the mudroom, laundry room and, of course, the kitchen, which pulls everyone together like a magnet. Perhaps it’s the steady warmth of the massive range, just one of several imported Aga appliances, or the leathered granite island big enough to spread out an abundant buffet. A family room wrapped in shiplap and a covered porch past a Dutch door offer casual spots, while the living room is decidedly more formal. Five bedrooms have distinct amenities, such as dressing alcoves, but none is as resplendent as the main suite with a remarkably airy bathroom. All of this sits perfectly positioned with Nassau Street just 4/10 of a mile away!
