Presented for sale is ''Tuscany,'' a beautifully and meticulously restored home designed in 1854 by the renowned architect James F. Post and restored by the current owners between 2005 and 2007. It was designed in the Italianate Style with Greek Revival and Rococo Revival elements. Notice the gracious semi-circular staircase that leads you to the welcoming front porch. Upon entering the home, it is the 3-story curved walnut balustrade that captures your eye, along with the heart pine floors, and the large entry hall where you can see through to the wall of windows at the back of the house. This floor offers ample living space with its beautifully proportioned double parlors that feature cast iron fireplaces as well as cornice molding and tray ceilings. In addition, there are two dining rooms, both with chandeliers - one of which once purportedly hung in the White House. The expansive kitchen is a chef's dream with custom cherry cabinetry throughout, a Walk in Pantry, Wolf Gas Range and Oven, Sub Zero Refrigerator and Freezer, and Bosch Dishwasher. There is a specially designed ''island'' that tucks neatly into the cabinetry! The French Doors at the back of the kitchen open onto a large, covered porch offering a view of St. Mary Basilica as well as the gorgeous magnolia tree in the backyard!

On the first level there is a study, a family room, and a Sauna Room as well as a guest room with attached full bath. There is a large ''Flex Room'' at the rear of the home with a full bath and seperate entran
