The stories this 215-year- old federal could tell! Imagine the passersby in 1802: courtly gentlemen with elegant ladies on their arm, shaded by lacey parasols. Maybe cars have replaced horse drawn carriages and skidoos now race river currents, but this elegant lady still stands in her prominent position, high and dry. The striking entry spans front to back, introducing the grand stairs with original newel post. Wood floors, built-ins, fireplaces and antique millwork grace nearly every room. The kitchen features stainless steel appliances, while a banquette of windows flood the room with light. Imagine curling up with a good book in the library, dressed in cherry. The arched entryway announces the formal living and dining rooms, each with dentil molding. Sit under an ornate glass ceiling and three walls of windows in the solarium, further enhanced by a coffered wood- plank ceiling. The elegance carries into the master en suite with a dressing room fit for royalty while two additional bedrooms are serviced by a hall bath. Be a steward of time. All this conveniently located between NYC and Philadelphia.
