Description

The historic Dickens House in Old Northeast is an Arts & Crafts masterpiece! This beautiful 1912 home has been lovingly and meticulously restored and is currently an active Bed and Breakfast.

The glass front door hosts the names of the previous owners above, and beyond it, a wide entryway with beautifully restored pine floors and a half bath. The cozy but large living room features a large fireplace with custom mantel, built in hardwood shelving and coffered ceilings. The dining room has beautiful architectural details, wrought iron chandelier and original swinging door to the kitchen. The kitchen has a Sub Zero refrigerator/freezer, Bosch dishwasher, Thermador gas range w/copper hood, granite counter tops, butcher block island with seating, 2 sink stations, and an adjacent work space. The Library has beautiful wood shelving and wet bar, a perfect room to grab a coffee or cocktail.
