As you come up the sidewalk, the landscaping provides a clue to the care and love this home has received from its current owners, and when you step in the foyer, you'll know it's a special place.

The owners have preserved some artifacts relating to Mr. Hoyt, the former owner and shoe magnate, which will stay with the home.


The family room, with its hardwood floors, crown moulding, and bay window, is a civilized spot to relax and visit with friends.

The living room is what will capture your heart.  The splendid turn-of-the-century wood fireplace, with its carved mantlepiece and artistic tile surround, is the focal point, and the leaded glass-front bookcases and window seat add a touch of elegance as well.

Just beyond the living room is a formal dining room that you'll actually use!  Really, it can be as formal or informal as you want, and with southern light spilling in from the adjoining sunroom, it will be a cheery place for mealtimes.

The kitchen is where modern convenience and traditional detail have been beautifully combined.  With the stylish backsplash, vinyl plank flooring for durability, and newer appliances providing updated utility, the original cabinets, wonderful farmhouse sink, and cubbies harken back to the home's past.  Even the latches and drawer pull contribute to the character!

If you made it to the kitchen, you must have walked right by the "Club Room," or as the English would call it, the Shrug.  With its built-ins, faux tin ceiling, and access to the front porch--what better place to share a cocktail and tell tall tales with friends?

Upstairs the elegance continues in the primary bedroom, which features another decorative mantlepiece, triptyich windows, and hardwood floors.  It also includes a cedar-lined walk-in closet.

The upstairs bathroom, which is surprisingly large, is another masterful blend of period and modern.  A barn door hides a nice linen closet and saves space at the same time.

The second bedroom also features hardwood floors and large, bright windows.

Just beyond the primary bedroom you'll find a huge laundry room--big enough to also serve as an office or exercise space.  (The floors are painted in a faux-distressed style!)

The third bedroom, with its black painted floor and wallpapered accent wall, has its own bold character.  In fact, every room in the house is a carefully curated statement of style!  Although from upstairs this bedroom is accessed through the primary bedroom and laundry, there is a back staircase off the kitchen, so it could be blocked off from the laundry and become a very private bedroom or office.

As if all that gorgeous living space weren't enough, you also get a two-car attached garage--with auto-open doors and direct access to the house for weatherproof living--and a good old-fashioned two-story barn!

The barn would make a fantastic workshop, art studio, small business warehouse...or store all your sports equipment and motorcycles there.  Heck, it's big enough for your neighbor's sports equipment and motorcycles as well!

The beauty of this home is not just inside--it has a charming yard with enough space for flowers, vegetables, and your landscaping ideas, and it's overlooked by another covered porch for additional outdoor relaxation.
