It features an elegant façade, deep porches, wide center hall, and Greek Revival moldings. Property includes mature trees and two period outbuildings—a tenant house and commissary.
Recent repairs include foundation, sill and roof, back porch, new entrance porch, new septic tank, updated electrical. Interior work and rewiring needed.
