Trowbridge House is a remarkable Peabody and Stearns designed 1907 Shingle Style masterpiece. The exterior features the classic design of stone on the 1st floor and decorative shingle on the 2nd & 3rd floors. Steel beam construction makes this home as solid as it is beautiful. The inviting porte-cochere beckons visitors into the gracious Great Hall where a gorgeous main staircase awaits with lovely carved balusters, magnificently maintained original wood paneling and extraordinary stained glass windows featuring 3 artist rondels.

As well there is an impressive stone fireplace, large curving window seat and original intricate plaster ceiling. Two French doors on either side of the fireplace lead out to a large sunporch with three walls of screened windows a perfect spot for alfresco dining. Another spacious living room features original wood paneled walls, a brick fireplace, multiple wall sconces & original ceiling fixtures.
