The Joseph Bennett House (Thomas Grange Simons House) is a Notable, Category 2 home, built Circa 1814 and is emphasized by a central pedimented pavilion. This grand Double Home is located on high ground with no flooding issues. It includes a separately metered 2 bedroom, 1 bath suite located on the first level of the home with independent access. This space is perfect to host guests or to lease and generate income. The main portion of the home, located on the 2nd through 4th levels, consists of 2-4 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms. Intricate moldings, soaring ceilings, impressive symmetry, and original heart of pine floors can be found throughout. The impressive entry includes a large foyer and central stairhall. A formal Dining Room and a formal Living Room, each with a wood-burning fireplace, flank the entryway on the right and left sides of the home. The eat-in Kitchen overlooking a cozy den, a powder room and storage space is located at the rear of the home. Symmetrical piazzas found on both sides of the rear of the home overlook the fenced private garden. Pass a sunny roof terrace as you wind up the stairs to the second floor to find a large sitting area with a master suite on either side, each with a fireplace and bathroom. The third floor offers two rooms, one with a fireplace, which could be two additional bedrooms, offices, or storage space. One full bathroom completes the third floor. With a separate entrance and separately metered from the main house, the first level suite is a perfect sized guest apartment or rental unit with a modern Kitchen overlooking the open living space with old cooking fireplace. Off-Street parking is located at the rear of the property, at the end of the shared driveway.
