The main residence is distinctive and graceful, its early 20th-century design enduringly appealing. Wooden molding, maple and marble flooring, and grand fireplaces create a dignified atmosphere, and the enfilades have been carefully considered.
“The house is quite original in its form,” says Weathers. A 10-foot-tall (3 m) black walnut front door opens to the main reception area, off which pocket doors give access to a large living room, a refined dining room with brick fireplace, and one of the many deep, sheltered porches from which the view can be appreciated. In the kitchen, glass-fronted cabinetry, an antique cast-iron stove, and a gas cooktop cement the vintage feel.
