The replicated hand carved scrolls & rosettes were created so the exterior of the newly built garage and main house would exist in harmonious unison. The unique balance of historical preservation and modern updates to key areas were foremost in the minds of the present owners. The list of updates is epic. An excerpt of that list includes these new items- furnace, AC unit, water heater, doors and windows, fresh paint, new insulation. A custom picket fence leads the way to an expansive front porch & the main entry way. Beyond the front door you are greeted by an inviting living room and a stair way that brings you to three private sleeping arrangements. Each upper-level room features hardwood floors and post card like views of the yard. The kitchen is outfitted with stainless steel appliances, built ins, Corian counter tops, breakfast bar, and a cozy dining area. Nestled on the acreage is a heated intricate mega workshop that was newly built in 2020. The garage is also a source of extra square footage with an upper level of unfinished space. This Ivoryton home is where you set the pace, from entertaining guests in style to just relaxing on your porch for a while. 22 Chestnut is the place to be!
