If these walls could talk, they would tell us stories of life and love, family and friends, ages and stages. A willowy path leads you through a secret garden to the front door which in turn, opens into a beautiful hall punctuated by more plants and gorgeous leaded glass windows. The kitchen, designed for those who love to share in the joy of cooking, is the heart and soul of the house and connects the indoors to yet another unexpected garden. The second floor has three fabulous bedrooms and a study, the top floor master suite is its own treetop sanctuary, and the lower level has an auxiliary apartment plus a separate home office, each with its own private entrance. In a leafy pocket of coveted Avon Hill, the house has been beautifully kept, remaining steadfast through modernization to its Queen Anne roots yet welcoming the ideas and vision of its creative and loving stewards. Today, its walls are ready to bear witness to what comes next, to record a new chapter in the story they will someday tell.
