1821 to 2021: 200 hundred years since the original house was built, KMS Designs has re-envisioned the historic renovation with a fabulous reconstruction soon to be completed. This extraordinary project meticulously melds character and antiquity with original materials into a sophisticated vision of new historic. 65 Center Street features four finished floors, five bedrooms, four full and three half baths. The spectacular sunroom porch is perfect spot all year-round and the design of the house lives beautifully season to season. The first floor level up above the street affords an exceptional lower level with an at grade entry and full size windows. Views of the Congregational Church steeple from within the house and views across Town to the harbor from the widows walk. Two car off street parking and a large private patio terrace bordered by an alley of trees and pocket gardens. The property is ideally located at the crossroads of Cliff, Center and West Chester Streets in the heart of Town.
Up the friendship stairs above Center Street, the house opens to a dramatic two-story cathedral foyer featuring KMS Designs signature open staircase to above and below. With a nice sightline deep into the house, the foyer also transitions to a warm library/den accented with reclaimed beams, antique wood paneling and steel framed glass doors. Through the den is a timeless treasure. The all season porch has fabulous custom oversized sliding glass windows and a wonderful perch above the street. The kitchen is the heart of the house and centrally located past the entry foyer. A side door enters to a handsome mudroom with a herringbone brick floor – material reclaimed from the original fireplace at 65 Center. Off of the kitchen is a true walk-in Butler\’s pantry with custom cabinetry, small appliance storage and extra fridge & freezer drawers. Opposite the central island is a wet-bar with glass shelves and a long built-in dining bench for the farmhouse dining table. KMS uses reclaimed materials and unique design elements throughout the house to bring character and historic appreciation to the spaces. The living room features a central fireplace and cathedral ceiling with rich wood finished walls and french doors to patio.
The open stair case turns to a spacious sunny landing with cathedral ceiling. There is a central hall with two guest suites and a separate laundry room. The master suite has a spacious bedroom and generous bath with soaking tub, separate shower and double vanities.
