A home with remarkable history offering a unique lifestyle at the southern gateway of the nation's smallest capital city. Designed and built in the late 19th century by artist Thomas Waterman Wood as his studio. This rural gothic cottage enjoys a wooded hillside setting at the edge of downtown. The covered exterior staircase provides a dramatic entry and is a recognizable feature of the home. A delightful deck and covered entry porch welcome you as you enter. A large open dining room and updated kitchen connect to a spacious living room with high ceilings, a hearth and woodstove and windows on three sides. From the living room you will find a wonderful covered porch. On the second floor a large landing serves as a home office.

If you are seeking in-town living with space around you and minimal yard maintenance the sloping wooded site has stepped terraces and ledge formations and abuts National Life property.
