Premier Location, Historic District, Custom Renovation, Professionally Landscaped. If this is an adequate description, no need to continue. Historic William Street, tucked quietly behind the activity of Main Street and the Harbor, is an enclave of grand, elegant homes that create a neighborhood filled with architectural splendor. The restoration of this neighborhood is an on-going activity and this property is a perfect example of the commitment of residents to retain the charm and grandeur. The original portion was built in l850. The new wing and addition were part of the recent restoration. There are choices on William Street of homes that are large and grand with expansive yards, homes that are small and charming, homes that will require total restoration and then there is a property like 109 William Street that will satisfy that center road and ready to move in; the work has been done. The primary room in the house, the living room with fireplace remains it's grand size. A lovely screened porch was converted to a year round sun room and is exactly that, a sun room in the winter months and a garden room in the summer. The balance of the house was adjusted and arranged to provide more contemporary use. The large addition provided room for en suite bedrooms, office and laundry rooms.
The antique front door with bronze pull bell sets the tone for the quality restoration of this home. The classic foyer with refurbished banister is typical of a Greek Revival. Permission was granted to add windows to brighten up this space and provide a glimpse of the side garden. The formal living room to the left is exceptionally large for a home of this vintage. The fireplace in the living room was completely restored with the original bricks and a built-in entertainment center with bookshelves is disguised behind historic designed panels. Custom is the operative word here with all cabinets and woodwork specifically designed for this home. An archway separates the living room bar and leads to one of the most enjoyable rooms in the house, the sunroom. It is appropriately named because light fills the room through large antique windows which uniquely move downward into the walls of the room. This room has been winterized, a number of new windows installed and finished with bead board walls a ceiling. It is a cozy place in a snowstorm and perfect on a cool, summer evening. Back to the archway in the living room and the dining room beyond. A square room with four windows and paneled built in cabinets that will store every piece of china you own along with place mats and stemware. An entertainers dream. The next "dream space" is the kitchen beyond which was part of the new addition. It is large, white, bright, spacious with a huge butcher block center island, built in desk area room for a dining room kitchen. The well designed custom cabinets provide storage for everything. A 12' x 28' deck beyond the kitchen overlooks the side garden. It has a unique summer design which is a pleasant, creative design. Steps down from the kitchen lead to a lower level with powder room, second laundry room and coat closet along with an en suite bedroom and huge walk in closet. This space is currently being used as an office and a pantry. The garage is two steps away from the covered back porch.
Though the house only had an original front stairway, when the addition was built a second stairway to the back of the house and to the lower level was added. The front stairway leads to the master bedroom with custom closets, a second fireplace and an exceptionally large bathroom which was originally a bedroom. Additional closets were cleverly built in the bathroom space, because she can never have enough. A soaking tub in the middle of the bath is an invitation to relax. Built in the typical "railroad" style of rooms from front to back, a guest bedroom and bath are behind the master bedroom. You can actually walk through this room to the a small, efficient sewing room, second laundry area and a surprise second master bedroom suite beyond which offers views of the Harbor. Because the owners wanted a fireplace in the master bedroom and there was no room in this space, it became the second master suite.
