247 S State St

A lovely Federal home with a large, gracious yard, is awaiting a new owner. Built circa 1800, this stately home features 5 bedrooms and 3.5 baths, central air, and 5 fireplaces. As you enter the front foyer note the wainscoting, chair rail, crown molding and random width pine flooring. The window sills are deep with built-in interior shutters. Formal Living Room with pine flooring, crown molding, fireplace with slate hearth,, built in cabinet with shelving above, and three windows allowing plenty of light into this gracious space. The formal Dining room is adjacent to the Living Room and features many of the same amenities, including the fireplace with wood mantle and built-in cupboard. The kitchen appears to be the original part of the house with beamed ceiling and a walk-in fireplace. Updates to this room include solid surface counters with integrated under mount double sink, custom pine cabinets, slide in range and access to the bright sunroom. This converted porch now serves as a den/family room and features tile flooring and beamed ceiling. Beyond the kitchen is the laundry room (spiral stairs have been removed to create more space) as well as a charming powder room with stucco over stone walls. The second floor features a main bedroom with white pine random width flooring, beadboard ceiling, stone walls, and a charming dressing/sitting room with stone wall. The main bath features tile flooring in neutral tones, walk in shower and a linen closet. The middle bedroom, also with random width flooring has a sweet window seat with storage underneath, a decorative fireplace with mantle and fluted pilasters and a brick hearth, and a built-in cabinet with shelving above. The third bedroom on this level features random width pine flooring, a decorative fireplace with brick hearth, ceiling fan, and neutral palette. Also on this level is a full bath with tile flooring, crown molding, sconces and Victorian light fixture, brass fixtures and a large step-in shower. The hallway on this level features crown molding, decorative sconce, linen closet and solid wood 5 panel doors. The third level of this home features 2 additional bedrooms and a hall bath with large vanity, tub/shower combination with storage closet. The yard is a gardener's delight with specimen plantings including crepe myrtle, Japanese maple, tree peonies, black walnut, wisteria, and oak. There is the remnant of an old stone barn, wisteria covered gazebo, and several patios - perfect outdoor rooms. The detached oversized two car garage features a full length second level - just begging to be converted to a studio or home office!
