The current owners of the seven-bedroom, eight-bathroom house put in a new foundation, restored the original wood floors and fireplaces, and created bedroom suites, including a master suite with a living area and fireplace. Much of the house and the property have water views, including a covered porch and a heated outdoor pool.
