We can also check “historic” off the list, too, since this property is one of the Academy Street Historic District’s stately older homes, each with the kind of curb appeal that only hints at the treasures that await inside…

…and, this interior does not disappoint with a host of original features like wood trim, main staircase, wainscoting, fireplaces, pocket doors, and stained glass windows galore.

Bibliophiles will feel like a kid in a candy store once they get all their books onto these built-in shelves in the library…

… and the functional kitchen/breakfast nook adjoins with a spacious formal dining room with Greek Revival-style fireplace and double glass French doors.

Iit’s hard to feel bummed out by Mondays when you wake up in this cheerful pink bedroom…

…and, if you don’t need six bedrooms, feel free to turn one of them into your dedicated crafting, art, or work space.

A stained glass window in the master en suite? That is one classy bathroom.
