Historic elements are preserved in chic style at the Fairchild house, c. 1730, situated on 1.52 acres on charming Main Street. With 2800 square feet of bright, livable space, designer details draw you in with beautiful wallpapered rooms celebrating wide plank chestnut floors, crown and raised paneling, 4 fireplaces and 2 stairwells. The main level offers quiet places for contemplation, hardworking spaces and gathering places for family and friends. Versatile entry room offers laundry, butler’s pantry and storage options with painted checkerboard floor and white marble utility sink. Keeping room with large fireplace is central to all the action and leads to the William Morris inspired library, formal living room, formal dining room with corner cupboard, and the fab kitchen. Taking cues from its rich past, the kitchen features classic custom glass front ivory cabinets and original floors. Gleaming additions include farm sink, granite counters and stainless appliances. Your favorite place will quickly become the sun porch, painted to celebrate the sea, awash with light from glorious floor to ceiling windows. Three wonderfully large bedrooms share the upstairs including the front to back master suite with lots of windows, fireplace and dressing room featuring marble vanity and 3 closets. All share an oversized full bath designed to pamper with large tiled shower with glass door, claw foot tub, and gorgeous marble-topped double vanity. The enchanting backyard is deep and celebrates privacy with a stone patio and trees you’ll wish could talk.
