Located just a few minutes walk from The Taft School, this architectural gem is one of the most important buildings in Watertown. This High Victorian Gothic with castellations was built by Charles T. Woodruff in 1859. A stately home with ten-foot ceilings on both the first and second floor, eight-foot paneled wood doors throughout, six-foot arched windows, three fireplaces, and many built-ins and decorative moldings throughout. The upper level provides five good sized bedrooms, two full baths, plenty of closet space, a curved staircase to the attic with a widow's peak and a curved back staircase to the kitchen/family room. A 20 foot Tuscan columned covered porch overlooks the private yard with mature plantings and the grand double paneled front door opens into the front two-story foyer with a sitting area above. The front rooms of the house each contain a nook created by the castellated structure providing a room within the room. Ideally located just minutes from town, this well-landscaped level parcel overlooks the Green and offers plenty of yard with privacy from neighbors. A period home that is hitting the market for the first time and offers a rare opportunity to grab a piece of Watertown's history and unmatched architecture.
