Property Description

Locally known as "Idlewood", this home reflects the Second Empire style. Its slate covered mansard roof has stood watch over Main Street for generations. Classic ornamentation along the ridge of the roof, intricate woodwork that adorns the fascia and the details of the original porte cochere add to the architectural charm. This grand entry now serves as the main entrance to one of the four light-filled apartments. There are two, two-bedroom apartments and two, one-bedroom apartments. The property offers two large garages, providing ample covered parking. Idlewoods large front and back yards afford wonderful opportunity to entertain and garden. As one of the finest homes along Main Street, Idlewood represents a great investment opportunity; whether maintaining its sought-after apartments or planning a careful restoration as a grand family home.
