The kitchen of the Marshall Street house offers stainless appliances, a granite-topped peninsula with cabinets on both sides, mosaic tiles, and oak cabinets and floors. For less lofty pursuits at 335 Marshall Street, there is a screened-in porch off the great room and an in-ground pool in the side yard. The gentleman’s farm on 811 Highland Street was constructed circa 1790, purportedly with bricks made on the property, but much has changed since then. The post-and-beam kitchen at the Highland Street house has a large custom-made island topped with reclaimed 200-year-old wood, an ironing-board cabinet turned into spice storage, handmade porcelain tiles, and pocket French doors to the dining room.
