There’s enough space here for an office, work-out area, a more informal TV room, among other ideas! On this lower level is also roughly 750 sq ft of finished and unfinished basement area that is not-habitable but used for laundry, closet space, storage, and utilities. The grounds have been thoughtfully designed with 2,000+ perennial bulbs that bloom in the spring, established heirloom roses, and 50+ year heirloom tree varieties such as white oak, as well as the garden which has only ever had organic practices used on it and benefits from all the southern exposure!
