Monthly Estimate* How much can I afford?

Porter Hall is an impressive 4 bed, 4 1/2 bath Tudor manor located on historic Drake Ave. Coffered ceilings, a double fireplace, historic tiles, many built-ins, hardwood floors, grand staircase, exquisite woodwork & carriage house explain why the home is currently listed as an architectural landmark on The National Register of Historic Places. A modern kitchen, breakfast room, formal dining room, first-floor laundry, cozy den, spacious living room, foyer and sunroom make up the main floor. Three of the bedrooms are en suite and there is even a sitting room on the second level. If you like lots of nooks and crannies for reading, relaxing and conversation, this may be the home for you. In recent years, many updates have been made, including plumbing & electrical upgrades, central heating/cooling, and a new roof in 2020. Porter Hall is currently being operated as a vacation rental and comes completely furnished with reservations on the books. Would also make a lovely private home or B&B.
