The commanding beauty and stunning symmetry of this c.1863 Georgian Colonial will take your breath away. It is generously set back from the road and framed by a pair of magnificent copper beech trees. It was originally built by Sea Captain Walter Thorpe and later owned by Simon Banks, a wealthy proprietor of the Banks Shipping Line. The home has undergone 2 major renovations, first by Simon Banks in 1892 and second, by Cameron Clarke in the early 1900's. It includes 6 bedrooms, 4.5 baths, 4 original fireplaces, 9 ft ceilings and original floors, doors, and windows. The classic floor plan includes formal and informal gathering spaces. There have been numerous recent upgrades including the addition of a custom slate roof with finialed iron widows walk, and formidable matching chimneys. Landscaping, fencing and stonework are all newer. Inside, a sleek contemporary kitchen has been added which is fully outfitted for the discerning chef and perfect for entertaining. It opens to the rear of the home where you'll find a new covered deck stepping down to an oasis of sculpted gardens, flowering trees, stone patio and newer 20 X 40 heated gunite pool and spa.
