Today, the historic house is an example of thoughtfully preserved original architecture enriched with modern design improvements.
Formal rooms open to a rear flagstone patio and gardens, connecting indoor and outdoor spaces.
Multi-paned casement, leaded-glass and clerestory windows fill the rooms with light. Details include oak flooring and built-ins.
The original owners were investment banker John Earle Jardine and his wife, Mary.
The center-island kitchen and butler’s pantry have been updated.
A staircase leads to the second floor, which has four bedrooms. The third story has two additional bedrooms. There are a total of seven bathrooms.
