The show stopping floor to ceiling triple flu , clad in slate, is center stage of the open concept main floor area and is flanked by two wood burning stoves. On the one side, a Vermont castings stove for heat and ambiance and the other, a Gem Pac wood cook stove that is as much of a conversation piece as it is functional! In addition, there is an ETS Steffes  (electric thermal storage) heating unit on the main level which takes advantage of off peak metering (making costs efficient for new owners).

A spacious bedroom located on this level offers a grand 6 piece en suite with toilet, bidet, double sinks, glass shower& claw foot tub, concealed by stunning reclaimed french doors. In addition, another antique door cleverly separates the walk in closet where you'll find stack-able washer and dryer.
