Restful serenity and privacy in an oasis of towering maples, lilacs, pear trees, rose bushes and flowering perennials on beautiful turn of the century Chestnut Street. The 1870 farmhouse is set well back from the street and is protected on all sides with verdant trees and shrubs which burst into color come spring. Owner occupied since 1996, the property has received a steady stream of discreet improvements and updates during which careful attention was paid to keep its original charm and architectural character intact. The second floor was once a large three bedroom unit which was subdivided into two units many years ago and which can effortlessly be recombined. On the third floor are a bedroom with tremendous closet space of which a part can be used to create a bath. In addition there is a storage room which can be given to either of the upper apartments as a study or extra bedroom. A beautifully scenic New England village setting within easy walking distance to everything!
