Property Description

Indulge in a piece of history with this stunning Colonial Revival cottage built for Ernest Batchelder's chief colorist and assistant, F.L. Compton in 1916. Compton lived in this iconic home for more than 60 years, creating a true artistic haven of pretty gardens and wonderful tiles that are still on show throughout. The beautiful tile surrounding of the fireplace was reportedly a wedding gift from Batchelder to Compton, ensuring a unique welcome as you step inside this treasure trove of a historical home. There is a formal dining room to the right while the beautiful eat-in kitchen is set at the rear of the layout, along with the den and sunroom. All three bedrooms are contemporary in style, including the three baths. Original period features have been lovingly maintained, from the hardwood floors to the crown molding, and modern updates include a tankless water heater, central air and heat, and a 200-amp electrical panel.
