This stately 5 bedroom home exhibits plenty of old world charm. The home is carefully maintained and decorated with the highest quality furnishings; therefore, no parties are allowed at the property.
Stately home in prestigious Northwood subdivision with slate roof and extensive gardens. Enter a dramatic foyer hosting a beautiful staircase and powder room. This opens to the grand living room with coffered ceilings and a beautiful fireplace. Off the living room is a four season sunroom with heated floors and floor to ceiling sliding glass doors to over look the extensive gardens. A select kitchen and a formal dining room add to the old world charm of the home. A library awaits with floor to ceiling wooden bookcases. There are 4 bedrooms and 2.5 baths in the main portion of the home. (There is no bathtub on the property) A fifth bedroom, a game room and an additional beautiful highly restored bathroom are on the lowest level of the home that could be available to rent if owners were out of town. Upstairs you will discover a spacious terrace with a bar and an outdoor sectional to enjoy while overlooking the beautiful gardens.
There is adequate street parking for the property, as well as a large lot
across the street. We reserve the driveway and garage for our personal use, please do not park in the driveway.
Guests will have complete access to the main and upper levels of the home as well as the large upper terrace, backyard patio and all gardens. The owners live in the lowest level of the home which they access via the garage, but respect the privacy of their guests. That being said, we travel most weeks so its likely that we will not be home during your stay. If we are not home, you are welcome to rent the lowest level which houses a game room, a highly restored full bathroom and a makeshift/Bohemian 5th bedroom (see pictures). This bedroom has all new furniture so its clean and new but its rather makeshift with fabric walls and does not represent the same high quality as the main house. The property has a carriage house that is not accessible to guests.
Interaction with guests
Interaction with guests can be as little or as much as the guest prefers.

Im a professional guy that thankfully works part time and travels most weeks. Nothing makes me happier than learning and experiencing other cultures while sharing my home with like minded people. Im an open book so feel free to ask me for anything you might need.
Airbnb has changed the face of travel and Im very thankful to be a part of the experience.
