The Property

Exquisite! This fine antique home is filled with recent updates and a stunning professionally-designed interior.

The John Frye house was built as a 4-room gambrel in 1760. Another home was moved to the site and attached as is evident from the unusual roof lines. The building was part of the Operation Clapboard restoration of the Point section in the 1960’s.

The family who are the current stewards of this historic home include an interior designer who has meticulously chosen a décor that includes current trends on a foundation of classic fixtures that will stand the test of time. Original fireplaces and exposed beams frame these recent updates.

The main living level has formal living and dining rooms, a den/media room, spacious foyer, powder room and a striking new kitchen. The centerpiece of the kitchen is a massive stone fireplace with relined chimney. Custom cabinetry, marble and soapstone countertops, a sizable island, and stainless appliances create a kitchen for serious cooks and for entertaining together with the adjacent dining room. The second level has 4 bedrooms, 3 renovated or new full baths and a laundry/storage room. The newly renovated 3rd floor adds a bedroom suite and family/media room with an open, loft-like feel.

Updated systems include gas heat and central air conditioning. Off-street parking is available and a large brick courtyard awaits your summer entertaining.
