My Notes

As you walk up to this historic home notice the Double Piazzas, Intricate Classic Iron Work on the Gate and look up to the Historic Dome featured in many old photographs of the Holy City. Once inside, you will notice the classic & pristine Oak Flooring with Mahogany Inlay throughout most of the home. This home features a Formal Living Room with a Corner Fireplace with a Windsor Style Iron Front and Colonial Surround (One of four fireplaces within the home) a perfect room for greeting guests and entertaining. Continue through the Living Room into the Spacious Dining Room, currently used as a Music Room with a door that leads out to one of the many piazzas of this home. Just off the Dining Room/Music Room is the Family Room/Drawing Room with Classic Raised Panel Wainscoting that grace the walls and features another Fireplace with Matching Hearth that also shares the same warm wood tones of the walls.
