Designed and built by prideful owners, Bill & Sally Davis in 1988, this one-of-a-kind New England-style, Ship-bottom house boasts a level of historically inspired details and extraordinary workmanship that earned it a featured spot on an episode of HGTV’s Dream Builders show. From the Rose-head nails that on the bleached Cedar Clapboard siding and aged Cedar Shingles on the exterior to the reclaimed Tobacco Barn Pine floors, old Baltimore Brick fireplaces, early 1700’s Chestnut Paneling and rough-cut Oak ceiling beams, every detail of this unique home is period perfect!
