The Benjamin Coffin House was originally built circa 1772 and underwent a thoughtful and thorough renovation in the 1970s. Brimming with authentic antique charm, this wonderful gem features two bedrooms, 2 baths, beautiful living room with gas fireplace, renovated kitchen with new cabinetry and appliances, a cozy dining area, and a roof walk with harbor views. The new mahogany deck and gardens provide an intimate and private seating and dining sanctuary surrounded by fruit trees, mature hedges and a wood fence. Beautiful wide plank pine flooring, historic wood molding, and antique doors add to the charm of this wonderfully appealing and welcoming home. HDC approved plans for an addition of a first floor master bedroom suite.
First Floor: Entrance hallway with staircase to second floor opens into a cozy and bright formal living room with fireplace. A door from the living room leads into the open kitchen and dining room. The kitchen has recently been updated with all new appliances and cabinetry. A full bath with shower and a laundry/mudroom are also on this level. The door from the mudroom leads out to the wonderful and spacious elevated mahogany deck with plenty of room for relaxing and dining. Step down from the deck into the beautifully landscaped yard, which features fruit trees, gardens and a brick patio perfect for additional outdoor dining. New wood fencing, privacy hedges and bushes have recently been added to enhance the garden areas and have turned the outdoor spaces into a wonderful private oasis.
Second Floor: The staircase opens into a nice sized bedroom with fireplace. The second bedroom has a full bath with tub/shower and ladder to attic.
Third Floor: The attic is accessible via a ladder through a hatch in the second bedroom. The roof walk provides beautiful harbor views.
