Barbara was excellent to work with - she responded promptly to all emails/calls/texts and was very informative about the process for first time home buyers. She brings a wealth of local knowledge to the table and was very supportive throughout. Would highly recommend! Shaelyn Bouchard

Once you open the front door in this historically significant 18th century colonial, " The John Goddard House" with its burnished wide pine floors, multiple fireplaces, and original plaster walls, you are immediately swept up by the property's place in history. The gourmet kitchen with stainless steel appliances, large island, spa style bathrooms are seamlessly integrated into the house. Plus, there is a magical large private bricked garden with mature landscaping highlighted by discrete lighting and multiple sitting and dining options. The brick garden, a wonderful oasis, is accessed either from the kitchen or on the side near the driveway. This owner has a combination of period antiques and Asian influences- which points out how flexible this space is for all aesthetic styles. There is a first floor bedroom and bath for au pair or guests. You could easily add a kitchen and rent this area out as the property is a legal 2 family. The second floor has two large bedrooms, each with a fireplace and second floor sitting room also with fireplace. The third floor serves well as a fantastic master bedroom suite. Battery Park and other waterfront activities are only a block away but no flood insurance required.
