The property was built in 1894 as a library for Scituate, according to Antonia Snee, assistant director of the town’s current library. The four-bedroom, three-bath home, listed by Liz Roberts of Gibson Sotheby’s International Realty, is on the market for $2,290,000.
The 5,268-square foot Tudor-style home blends elegant period details and touches of contemporary design. A Brazilian cherry bridal staircase descends into a living room with cathedral ceilings, double chandeliers, intricately-carved wooden arches, and a fireplace that offers a great spot to curl up with a book.
A kitchen with high-end appliances and quartz countertops leads into a dining room that overlooks the patio and fountain. An office outfitted in cherry cabinets and ceilings boasts a bar area hidden in a London-style telephone booth.
