No matter how you enter the Lawrence House - formally via the regal front facade, or the slate side entrance flanked by ivy-entwined columns - you will know you have arrived at very special place. The former Wheelwright's Home and Shop, circa 1840's, has been added to and improved by the great skill of architect William Short, a founder of the revered Short and Ford - flawlessly bringing this home into modern times. Historic details of random width pine floors, decorative fireplaces, and fine woodwork add romance to rooms ready for today, in gracious gathering spaces like open-concept living and dining rooms, a bright kitchen with a skylit breakfast room, and cozier spots, like the ethereal, custom-painted sunroom, and bookcase-wrapped study and library. Four bedrooms include a trio of rooms that comprise the elegant master suite. The romantic backyard and patio are lushly planted with flowering perennials and old growth trees. Cars can remain on a gravel drive and in a 1-car garage, as it's sidewalks all the way to the village of Lawrenceville.
