Here’s an opportunity to see some very expensive homes — all in one afternoon. Read my full story here in House to Home. The picture here is from the million-dollar home on Manchester Farms Road.
I was lucky enough to see these homes with just a dusting of snow, and what a treat.
Dennis and Lorraine Dolan’s 1860s home at 550 Dutch Road once belonged to Spike and Kay Payne Spicer. Builder David Haller bought it in 2006 and remodeled the entire house. It has become a beautifully restored 4,400-square-foot residence listed at $699,000 with Kathe Rafferty of Howard Hanna Real Estate Services.
Less than a mile away, a home at 6715 Manchester Farms Road is open to the public — a million dollar home built in 1994 by John and Bobbi Kozlowski. John Kozlowski, a builder who owned Bernard Brick, and Bobbi Kozlowski, an interior designer and former bakery owner, meticulously designed the 4,500-square-foot ranch that sits on 12 secluded acres. Kathe Rafferty lists this one at $1,125,000. We have a lot of other great stories — click on them below:
