Perennial beds offer spectacular blooms in every season.

Driveways:   The current owner added a private road, with a side parking area,
connecting the Flag Station Road property entrance to Ryefield Road at the rear
boundary – this convenient double road frontage that facilitates easy ingress and
egress. The circular driveway is perfect for guests entering and exiting with ease while the driveway that winds past the Pump House to the parking area beside the Garage and the side door of the house is ideal for family use. Near the Pump House you will see an old outdoor oven structure, currently not in use.


Built in 1940, this house was originally a rustic country retreat. The Front Entrance Hall was completely open to the Living Room and to the Library while the Master Bedroom wing was originally two bedrooms and one bath. The Kitchen was completely paneled in dark wood cabinets that matched the beamed ceiling. The Breakfast Room, Family Room, the Laundry/Utility/Storage Area, and the Garage were added in two separate additions. The Breakfast Room was formerly open to the Family Room.
