The kitchen is new, the gas furnace is new, the exterior paint is new. But the doorway spandrels, the butler’s pantry, and built-ins for linens? They’re old (and charming). Two bedrooms and a full bath are up on the third floor; an office can be found on the first. In all, there are 11 rooms in 3,434 square feet with nooks and crannies and angles aplenty.

A huge arched doorway frames the view of the lovely staircase in this home in the Montvale Historic District. Other exquisite details include French doors, window seats, an assortment of great-looking windows, and wonderful woodwork. The kitchen and baths, however, are older, and other updates are in order. At 4,300 square feet, this home is a big one. Plus, there’s a detached garage.
