Period Architecture revealed, “The home features many of the markers of the Arts and Crafts movement, among them a raised wooden platform in the “church room” – that was once used to put on Shakespearean productions for its music- and drama-loving members. Above the platform is one of the showpieces of the home, an arched stained-glass window depicting Saint Francis, Italy’s patron saint of animals, whose birthplace – the Italian hill town of Assisi – gives the home its name. The loft over the chapel room is original to the home and was converted into a family workspace and craft room. Restored hand-hewn wood beams, hand-carved limestone fireplace surrounds, and wrought iron hardware and fixtures, combined with new stone interior walls, cast stone Gothic arches, and iron gas lanterns are just some of the countless touches – both large and small, added and preserved – that lend the residence an air of authenticity and a marked sense of time and place.” Since selling in 2018, a new carriage house and studio were built on the property. New state-of-the-art mechanical systems and extensive landscaping and site work enhance this perfect setting for personal creativity and comfortable living. The Assisi Residence was on the market for $1.95 million with Tom Toole Sales Group of Re/Max. Be sure to check out the previous listing with more photos!
