Known fondly as the village’s “Greatest Painted Lady”, the Victorian masterpiece comes straight out of a fairytale storybook and is on the local, state and national registers of historic places. Built in 1890 by John Wood and designed by Oliver Combs, the carpenter Gothic-style home has been beautifully restored with loving care. The current owner has worked diligently over the past 15 years renovating the four-story home with its gabled slate roof and spire, large overhangs, forest-green and barn-red gingerbread trim, 80 caramel-colored wooden shutters and wraparound porch. The home was used as the setting for the Bette Davis television movie “Family Reunion” in 1981. Offered at $1,169,000.
