The first time Lily Scarlett saw this circa-1875 Old Field Village Colonial 19 years ago, she says, the home felt like “a haven.” “When I walked through the door, it just had a feeling of peace and love,” she says of the residence, which she is now selling for $724,999.
She’s looking to share the love of this three-bedroom, 1 1⁄2-bath residence located across the street from Conscience Bay with a new owner.
Scarlett, who describes herself as an “old-house lover,” says the heavy crown and base moldings throughout the green-shuttered 1,664-square-foot home were an immediate attraction, as was the intricate handiwork on the front porch, which includes carved acorn scrolls between the posts. That motif continues in the banister of a staircase inside.
A parlor on the first floor includes a fireplace, and the dining room includes a crystal chandelier. A “warm and peaceful” living room features a piano and French doors to a patio overlooking 2 acres with lilac, Queen Anne’s lace, azalea, iris and Pee Gee hydrangea bushes. There are also locust, white pine, blue spruce and cedar trees around the house.
The property also includes an approximately 720-square-foot horse barn, which is currently used for storage.
“You don’t feel like you’re in the suburbs,” Scarlett says. “There’s a barn that’s on the property. There’s deer and there’s fox. It’s just like being in the country.”
An updated eat-in kitchen has granite surfaces, stainless steel appliances and a gas stove. Upstairs, there are three bedrooms; a full bathroom includes a claw bathtub, a shower stall and a pedestal sink.
The home is equipped with central air conditioning.
The listing agent is Raymond Powers of Coach Realtors; he is co-listing with his wife, Dina.
