From the coveted cobblestone street to the indoor-outdoor living experience, this magnificent home is a rare piece of real estate.

The whimsical woodsy retreat sits on a massive double-wide lot with many mature plants. A large Deodar Cedar tree out front frames the home nicely, adding to the property's lush naturalist charm and stunning facade.
Large living spaces reflect the thoughtful and open layout of the home. The primary living room features a sitting nook framed with large windows, wood floors, built-in shelves, and a fantastic fireplace.
Dining is a delight in the expansive formal dining room. This room boasts tranquil views of the garden through floor-to-ceiling french doors and windows. The well-designed indoor-outdoor living experience makes this home perfect for entertaining and everyday living.
The gardens of Edgewood were carefully curated through the decades by the owner, who collected new plants for the garden wherever she went, including a Beech (Fagus) tree, a paper bark maple tree, a draping Loropetalum Chinensis, and several unusual species of Camellia. In the late 1970s or early 1980s, the home was visited by Sunset Photographers to photograph the garden for a magazine. Keep reading about the gardens of Edgewood.
