Built in 1953 and designed by esteemed architect Lewis Edmund Crook, the residence is a fine example of nineteenth-century Federal and Greek Revival architecture. The front entrance and all external thresholds are made of Georgia marble. There is a Buckingham slate roof and newly installed copper gutters. A total of eight rooms offers approximately 5,200 square feet of living space plus approximately 1,000 square feet on the lower level. The elegance of this home's design creates an ideal family environment and provides a setting for grand scale entertaining. Ceiling heights extend to 10.5' on the first floor and are 9' on the second floor. Random width pegged walnut floors are found in the entry way, dining room and library. Oak flooring is found throughout the rest of the house. There are two HVAC systems.
