Impeccable village home


Impeccably maintained and renovated Italianate in the historic arts village of Franklin PLUS studio and workshop on the lower level. Grand double height entry with decorative fireplace front and switchback stairs. To the front is a dining room big enough to accommodate the biggest holiday crowds. The massive eat-in kitchen is thoroughly modern, but finished with historic touches that make it feel just right in this very special house. There's a sun room with gas heat stove, a parlor with sliding doors to a second parlor that could be an office, but sellers use for extra guests. Main floor has a full bath with shower and laundry room, and split duct wall a/c units. Upstairs, lots of bedrooms and a full bath to accommodate sellers' holiday guests, but the rear section was once one big room and could be again, leaving you with a huge master and three other bedrooms up. On the lowest level, a showroom of an office and workspace, plus lots of storage. All set on a side street, on a double lot, with an oversized detached two car garage and a garden shed. Lovely plantings, even a stone fountain bubbling at the edge of the patio at the side porch. The location is perfect. The house is perfect. And Franklin - well, if you know, you know. Home of the Franklin Stage, the Franklin Farmer's Market, businesses that draw visitors from all over the world, two restaurants, and a market/cafe, with more coming soon. Franklin is something special. And this house is one of its finest.
