Amenities

Elevator:

The elevator serves all three floors. Park in the garage on the lower level and take the lift with your suitcases!

Handicapped Accessible:

The house is wheel chair accessible through the front door or from the garage . . . roll your chair or walker from your car to the elevator. Two of the bathrooms are equipped with grab bars.

Parking:

There's lots of parking both in front of the house and behind, as well as a 3 car garage on the lower level.

Wood Stoves:

We have "Pellet Stoves" in the Family Room and Master Bedroom. These use recycled wood products, basically sawdust compressed into pellets, to provide continuous heat with a cozy flame. These are very cool high-tech devices that are hypnotizing to watch. Absolutely great on a chilly day!

Primary Heating Plant:

Three large propane gas furnaces keep the house cozy in any weather. On a cold winter night you might choose to dial the furnaces down a bit and use the two pellet stoves, the gas stove in the library and the gas fireplace, to provide cozy zones of heat.

Fireplace:

In the fireplace area, just off the main hall, we have a gas fireplace, which adjusts between high and low flame and can be set to thermostat mode to keep a constant temperature.

Garage:

There's a 3 car garage in the lower level, accessible by staircase or elevator from the house. To get your car there you drive around the house to the rear and enter through three large motorized garage doors. Connected to the garage is a ¾ bath with shower, convenient for cleanup after outdoor activities or use as an extra bath for the house.

Netflix usually works perfectly, with no lag.
