Stately Rocks Village Federal, published by multiple style editors since purchase by designer-owner in 2008. This is both a sophisticated, comfortable family home and an architectural gem of the North Shore, listed on the National Register. The elegant 18th century house offers deep historic patina alongside fresh, thoughtful renovations, including a newer kitchen with custom cabinetry, appliances, gas heating, fresh paint inside and out complement the original wide-plank pine floors and four brick fireplaces. A hand painted mural of bucolic green-grey, countryside scenes saved from the 1830's is a show stopping detail leading from the stair hall through the master. Renovations to the property also include a restored barn with studio and a lush, professionally landscaped lot with stonewalls and a flagstone patio. The house, named the Ingalls-Colby House, is also known locally as "The Countess House" for ties to revolution era French gentry.
