Mary Jean Agostini RE/MAX RIGHT CHOICE
Rare chance to become a steward of history! For the first time in almost 50 years, this historically significant & well preserved SECOND EMPIRE STYLE home has become available. The Second Empire Period was inspired by French architects during the reign of Napoleon III. Built Circa 1860-1870, with appropriate modifications during the years, this "gem" is situated on 2 idyllic acres of estate-like grounds located at the gateway to one of Berlin's pretty country roads. Over 5000 species of rare and exotic plants from all over the world are present here. Marvel at the opportunity to dine amongst, entertain within and simply relish these mature gardens which an eager yet novice gardener can manage. This home has retained many of it's original features in remarkable condition from the dormered Mansard roof sporting fishscale shingles to the JIGSAWN bracketed eaves, truly an antique lovers' dream. Walking through the original double entry doors you experience an era of gentility. Three floors of history await you featuring gleaming hardwood floors, 3 fireplaces and many original interior ceiling and door moldings. This estate would make an ideal B&B or other creative venue.
