Full/Half Baths
Classic and gracious, this Colonial Revival house is notable as an early example of a design from the renowned architectural firm of Royal Barry Wills. Designed by its original owner, Nathaniel Perry Tufts, an associate of Wills for many years, the house has remained within family ownership since it was built in 1931. It displays the elegance of traditional proportions, detailed interior and exterior millwork, and near perfect siting on two-thirds of an acre in the heart of the Cliff Estates. The property boasts a grand front-to-back living room, comfortable family room steps removed from the kitchen, dining room with original arched china cabinet and a butler's pantry, large master bedroom and three other bedrooms on the second floor, as well as a walk-up attic. The grounds resemble an English garden with brick patio and croquet lawn. Appropriately, the garage doors face rear so they are not visible from the street. There is an opportunity here to renovate and enhance a masterpiece.
