This five-bedroom stone colonial got a nice price cut a few days ago — of $101,000 (to be exact), bringing its price down to $1.249 million (to be exact). It started its life on the market at $1.8 million last year. It has a few things that makes it stand out from other homes of its ilk — particularly the little creek with a stone bridge on its one acre parcel, which also has gardens and stone terraces. It’s really lovely.
Inside, there’s love-it-or-hate-it silver and pink wallpaper in the dining room and traditionally proportioned, reassuring rooms. It’s a home without unexpected angles — very relaxing and familiar. Some special notes include a (newly built) claw-foot tub, dual vanities, a fireplace, a bay window, and a round room for streaming sun. Smell those cookies baking?
The only challenge might be a game on that giant chess set -- which, if it came with the house, would be a major incentive for chess nerds (and I count myself among their numbers). Fortunately, there's plenty of land available for a good game of lawn chess. Just don't let your bishop tumble into the stream.
