This stunning John Calvin Stevens home was formerly the Mansion House B&B. With four bedrooms and four baths, it could possibly serve this function again, provided the new owner obtains the necessary approvals and permits.

John Calvin Stevens homes are cherished for many reasons, all of which drew the present owner to purchase it 36 years ago. Richly designed interior wood details, including door and window framing, cupboards, pantry, butler’s pantry, stair rails/bannisters and flooring, have remained unpainted and unspoiled in this home. Pocket doors in the double living room create options for large or smaller spaces. 

Let’s talk about the walls. A hallmark of John Calvin Stevens homes is firestops behind the walls, up to the level of the chair rails. These heavy wood reinforcements provide fire resistance, as well as adding to the structural integrity. Above the wainscotting, you will find plaster & lathe walls nearly everywhere (except in two bathrooms where it had to be removed to install showers/plumbing). It’s in fine shape, and the current owner has stenciled period-correct decoration in the front entry and dining room.

If you look carefully, you’ll find hidden closets and storage areas making use of every bit of space.

Large Ell that, with proper permitting, could be converted to an additional dwelling unit.

Huge Barn, formerly used as an antique store, with inside connecting passage to main house.

Large Front Porch for gathering or people-watching.

The current owner installed a Gibraltar aluminum pool in the back of the house in 2010. It needs a new liner but had a new pump and sand filter installed in 2018. The entire large back yard and pool area are fenced. Next to the pool, and opening into the kitchen addition, is a lovely deck with pergola.

The property is well landscaped, with stately trees and large lawns.

Please note, the chicken coop does not convey with the sale.

The current owner has cherished and stewarded this home for 36 years. She has decided the time has come to downsize and will transfer this architectural treasure to the new owner via online auction, with bidding taking place November 8 to 15.

Previews are scheduled on Wednesday, November 2; Saturday, November 5; and Thursday, November 10, all from 11:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m.
