Built Circa 1780, the home has been masterfully expanded and updated to modern luxury standards. With over 9,000 square feet of luxe living space, the home has six bedrooms, six and a half bathrooms, and impressive rooms for entertaining and comfortable living. A double garage and expansive driveway offer private off-street parking for five cars - right in the heart of Old Town's historic district.
