The Charles E. Beach house, also known as the Beach Mansion, is a magnificent home located at the top of a rise, affording spectacular views of sunrises and sunsets! It is listed on the esteemed National Register of Historic Places, notably for it's finest examples of wood craftmanship. The exquisite details inside the home are evident throughout, from the intricate designs on the radiators to the original stenciled silk screen walls, coffered ceilings, suspended staircases, claw foot tubs and secret compartments, and has all been well-preserved and refurbished to it's original condition. In the kitchen you'll find a fully restored and functioning vintage 1950's Garland stove with 6 gas burners, large double ovens, broiler and griddle. A serene humidity controlled spa room was added where one can escape to an Italian marble steam room, watch snowflakes fall while soaking in the 6-person hot tub or work-out in the 6ft deep exercise pool. The backyard provides a private, park-like setting with gorgeous Beech and Gingko trees that allow for sun but provide ample shade as well. Bedrooms with balconies, a huge dressing room with a fireplace, terrific bonus room, game room with a stunning vaulted ceiling and a widow's walk that provides a 360 degree view...this is a rare, unique and very special home. The Beach Mansion is a warm and welcoming historical work of art. This is your opportunity to own a piece of American History within easy access to the modern world!
