http://194springfieldave.com/

Setback from the main street in Summit and perched on a hilltop, allowing for ultimate privacy, lies this historic French-inspired Farmhouse. Renowned for its elegant simplicity, it exudes both warmth and charm; with its pitched slate roof, gabled dormers, dovecote turret, tall chimney, half-timber beam detail, and stain-glass windows. A berm of mature trees and shrubs at the edge of the property creates an excellent barrier that blocks the view of the street and muffles the sound as well. The backyard is an oasis of quiet, peaceful space, providing an inviting mix of beautiful flora, shady nooks, a resting spot, and meandering stepping stones to a bluestone enclave on which to entertain. Secured with fencing, it is a private retreat, enfolded by mature trees, perennial plants and wildflowers contributing to its tranquility. If you like being part of a stimulating environment and value convenience, this prominent house, a short distance to town and transportation, will be to your liking.
