More additions /expansions in 1967- the expansion of the kitchen, den and addition of a second staircase and more bedrooms above. In 2004 the icing on this cake was a mud room, pantry, bedroom enlargement and screen porch off the owners bedroom. In all these expansive creative moments, the integrity of the architecture was maintained--Wide floorboards, deep windowsills and walls, incredible gardens and stone terraces, 5 fireplaces some with original mantels, and a period carriage house with a delightful 1 bedroom apartment above.
