    Property Details

    Welcome to the immaculate & completely restored Dutch Colonial. In its 115 year history, this home has had only 2 families that have called it home. Originally constructed for Edward Lorimer (one of 5 Brothers that established one of the largest yarn manufacturers in the US) in 1903, it remained in the Lorimer family until 1982 when the property was purchased by the current Owner, a master craftsman, carpenter & cabinet maker. Do not be deceived by the appearance of the Victorian aesthetic within, as everything about this house has been thoughtfully & tastefully upgraded to modern standards. This includes all of the systems (2 A/C systems in 2016 & 2018, gas-fired condensing furnace with 98% efficiency in 2012, complete renovation of both bathrooms in 2016 & 2018, new lifetime guaranty roof in 2012, upgraded & enhanced electrical systems, new kitchen, laundry & breakfast room to name a few). The house is deceptively larger than it appears from the street. The welcoming front porch wraps around the side providing direct access to the private rear yard. One will begin to appreciate that every single original detail remains. The entry hall is filled with quarter-sawn Oak. The living & dining rooms are filled with Chestnut woodwork on the pocket doors, plate rails, shutters & picture rails. The kitchen was renovated to exacting standards of the original cabinets with Yellow Pine cabinetry & counters, a new island and a professional Viking stove along with all the other necessary appliances. The laundry & breakfast room are tucked off the kitchen with a powder room under the main stairs. Upstairs, the wood details continue to impress, from the custom walk-in closet in the master bedroom to all the door trim & baseboards. Both bathrooms have been completely updated and both provide a large stall shower & a claw foot tub. The 3rd floor has amazing ceiling height (due to the roof lines) and there is even a pull-down staircase for access to a large, floored attic. The Owner's woodworking studio is in the basement with a Bilco door to the rear yard (the equipment does not convey) and the remainder of the basement is high & dry & has just been completely re-painted for the next Owner. Out back, you will find a Gothic-inspired storage shed, a fully fenced vegetable garden (and even a huge blueberry bush!) & the 2-car garage with attic access for additional storage. It is one of the most beautiful homes, ready for the next generation to call it home!
