With over 9, 000 sf of luxe living space, the home has 6 bedrooms, 6 and 1/2 bathrooms, and impressive rooms for entertaining and comfortable living. A double garage and expansive driveway offer private off-street parking for 5 cars - right in the heart of Old Town's historic district. The property boasts a subterranean theater/media room, large chefs kitchen and catering pantries, a guest suite with its own kitchen, bath and living rooms, and an historic smoke house recently converted into a SMART office. Extensive handcrafted moldings, original wide-plank hardwood flooring, and six fireplaces with hand-carved limestone mantles set this home apart.

Located only 2 blocks from King Street and the waterfront, the house sits in a prime location and on a spacious double lot.
