The family room in this Colonial has 10-foot cherry coffered ceilings that add to the ambience of the home, says listing agent Bonnie Glenn of Coach Realtors. “Buyers are really attracted to coffered ceilings,” Glenn says. “It adds warmth and character.”

Matching the coffer are Brazilian cherry hardwood floors, which are featured on both levels of the house. The family room includes a built-in cherry bookcase and a stone fireplace that stretches from the floor to the ceiling.

Overlooking the room is a granite eat-in kitchen, which has a center island breakfast bar, a stacked-stone cooking area with a Wolf oven and radiant heated floors. The four-bedroom, 3.5-bathroom house includes a rounded living room, a formal dining room, and a master suite with a fireplace, limestone bathroom and two walk-in closets.

This 1915 Victorian has been fully updated, but the original coffered ceilings add an old-fashioned element that helps maintain the home’s “historic elegance and charm,” says listing agent Paul Garrett of Garrett Realty Group. Like all molding in the house, the coffer is original oak, and it is featured in the dining room and living room, which also includes a wood-burning fireplace.
