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. Vast formal dining room can easily accommodate 16 or more for dinner. Enjoy an after dinner drink fireside in the Drawing Room. For those with musical talents, a Conservatory, with vistas of the side yard is perfect for the baby grand. In keeping with tradition yet realizing the need for modernization, the gourmet kitchen boasts an abundance of cabinetry and premium appliances facilitating meal preparation. Ascend to the second floor with 5 bedrooms and third floor with 3 bedrooms (formerly maid's quarters).
