Welcome to the Captain Charles Waite home; purchased by the current owners in foreclosure and restored and reimagined over more than 2 decades. The foresight and efforts of these stewards is evident in every inch of this home. Where a small kitchen once existed, the space has been expanded, to more than double, with cabinets handcrafted locally from the antique wood from this very home, accompanied by state-of-the-art appliances, Viking, Subzero and Bosch. Marble counters, island, and back splashes, beautiful farmhouse sinks, gleaming floors and an original fireplace. The family room and dining room are located on either side of the kitchen, for easy access and flow of everyday living and entertaining. The dining room has a wet bar with a hammered copper sink and bar crafted from a black walnut tree from this land. It also has access to a large screened-in side porch. The formal front rooms remain, as beautiful as ever; living room and library.
The second floor is equally as lovely. The newly created primary bedroom has a private bath with steam shower and soaking tub, as well as a walk-in closet/dressing room, and bay window looking out onto the large back yard. Generous bedrooms with wide hallways and updated marble baths complete the second floor.
Much care has also been taken of the exterior and mechanicals of the home. Please reach out for a more detailed description. Truly a special home; nothing more remains, except the recording of the deed in your name.
