Off the dining room, the beamed china room serves as breakfast room to an updated kitchen with butler's pantry. Off the kitchen is the bright family room featuring cozy radiant heated floors. The small den off the kitchen probably served as a summer kitchen early on. There are two powder rooms serving the first floor. The second floor boasts 7 bedrooms, each with access to its own private bath or Jack-and-Jill bath, as well as spaces for gathering or sitting. The third floor a can be used as a Nanny suite or, as is now used, an office. The original living structure was erected in 1710. The house began as a single room tenant farmer's home with walk-in fireplace on the Dixon estate. In 1813, the first large addition was made and then another in 1926. These additions were integrated virtually seamlessly. The last major addition was made in 1956 when a bedroom wing running perpendicular to the main house was added.
