Living and Dining Fireside

dimensions 25 x 16

The hardwoods stretch for miles.

When you first open the doors to the Maytag you will be welcome in and up the hardwood stairs by the gorgeous turned handrail. Put your coat in the entry closet, and take a turn to the right, however, and you are taking in the great room. 

The living room is so airy and the wainscot so classic you can't help but be impressed with the craftsmanship employed in this room. This home is not busy-Victorian, it has a simple, classic character. The home was built by the Maytag as a nod to Colonial architecture, a trend for the wealthy in their cottages and getaways. 

The fireplace is fully working and is an amazing work of art. The collectible Van Briggle tile surrounds the floor level fireplace with working chain curtain, custom fir dogs, and brass turn-handle for the flue (never get your hands dirty.) It will heat the room, is very efficient, and easy to maintain. There is an ash chute that drops into the basement for clean out. Your evenings will be spent in the cold months watching the snow drift down on the trees as you sit by the crackling fire in this great room. 

The dining space is convertible with just a lighting change–maybe to host your grand piano–because the dining sun room is capable of a smaller place setting.
