The romantic “Courtyard”, once the stables in the 1850’s, has heated tiled floors, original rafter beams, pine antique furniture, a gas fireplace, a queen canopy bed and a stunning lounge that overlooks the gardens. The lounge leads out to its own private courtyard and entrance. A spacious bath ensuite includes an original claw-foot tub and brass shower. Parking is at the rear of the door.
The Hearth’s charming appeal is the queen canopy bed and the open fireplace at the foot of the bed. The room is furnished in mahogany antique furniture, imported carpeting and includes a vanity and reading areas. The four piece washroom, once part of the hayloft, features an authentic tin soaker tub that keeps the water warm for at least forty minutes and a tiled walk-in shower.
The “Oakes” forms the “ell” portion of the house that was added around the 1830's and used as a classroom on the first floor. The original window panes, floors and door hardware still remain. This bright room is furnished in oak antique furniture, comfortable extra length twin beds/king bed, fireplace and a sitting area. The spacious washroom is equipped with a large handicap shower and antique mahogany vanity. The Oakes offers a private entrance and parking is at the rear of the door.
