Delighted to purchase this home in July 2013, the Walkers began a 6-month restoration project. With a sympathetic understanding of its history and in accordance with the covenants in place on the property, Andrew and Mary have transformed this grand old home. While the home still has echoes from the last century, when high ceilings and gleaming hardwood floors were the norm, it now has a fresh and contemporary feel with the luxury of 21st century accommodations. The three modern bedrooms are all en suite with sitting areas, complimentary Wifi, flat screen TVs and crisp bed linens.
A special welcome awaits you in the suite, which has a marble bathroom, a separate bedroom and cozy sitting room. The lovely common areas include the elegant livingroom with its sparkling chandeliers and gas log fire, the dining room with a retro vibe; the nook with its inviting chaise lounge, the stately library, an expansive upstairs hallway, and the beautiful sunroom with an original terrazzo floor where "full English" breakfasts are served. All showcase the owners’ eclectic book and art collection.
The home holds many secrets which the hosts will be more than willing to share --- from the original decorator’s inscriptions from 1919 uncovered during the renovation, to three amazing original cedar closets in the huge attic, to something in the basement that will have you shaking your head!
Andrew and Mary are delighted to share "Across the Pond Bed and Breakfast" and invite you to visit. We will welcome you with Southern hospitality and a hint of British charm to make you feel instantly at home.
