Fabulous five bay antique on a quintessential, quiet, cobblestone street. Restored to absolute perfection with thorough attention to detail. Beautiful gardens, stone walls and patio, roof walk with panoramic Harbor Views, original fireplaces. Frontage on Ash Street with parking for 2 cars on Ash Lane.
