The restraint shown in the design of this colonial residence gives it the stately appearance one expects of a property in the heart of Washington Depot. The front entry opens to the formal living room, which is warmed by the soft glow of traditional sconce lighting. Passage to the kitchen flows through the two doorways flanking the interior wall. The kitchen's central location lends itself to the modern lifestyle; half of the room is being used as a den, but this could easily be updated to create a large communal space.

The restraint shown in the design of this colonial residence gives it the stately appearance one expects of a property in the heart of Washington Depot. The front entry opens to the formal living room, which is warmed by the soft glow of traditional sconce lighting. Passage to the kitchen flows through the two doorways flanking the interior wall. The kitchen's central location lends itself to the modern lifestyle; half of the room is being used as a den, but this could easily be updated to create a large communal space. The great room is wrapped in windows, drawing upon the sense of seclusion provided by an 8-acre parcel. The fluidity of the colonial design allows for modifications to be made to the use of the space without having to disrupt the timeless aesthetic. This house was lovingly built forty-one years ago and since has continued to nestle itself into the landscape. The home’s original stewards took care to plant trees and shrubs that would welcome wildlife. Priceless mature trees such as Black Walnut, Red Maple, and Dogwood carry forth a rooted sense of place. While the lilac, beauty bush, and astilbe give subtle softness to the topography. With the passing seasons the views surrounding the home change from that of a summer wooded retreat to a site overlooking the historic depot. Sit upon one of the two terraces and enjoy the monarchs as they flutter among the plant life or follow in the home’s tradition and perch your own bluebird box for all to enjoy.
