Tour two of Norfolk’s charming houses, both located on Terrace View (in the heart of the village just off Maple Avenue). Sponsored by Betsy Little Real Estate.
15 Terrace View: Delightful in-town family house renovated by a craftsman and an artist plus their extraordinary barn built in 2003 all on .65 quiet acres. Largely renovated over the past 22 years, the house has 9’ ceilings, hardwood floors, original doors, new windows, new baths – a creative mix of old and new. The first floor has been opened up to create an integrated kitchen/living/dining space. There are 3-4 bedrooms and 2 full baths. The second floor can serve as a rental apartment. The entire property is cheerful, alive and charming.
17 Terrace View: In the early 1880’s Augustus Curtiss, general store proprietor and Norfolk’s selectman, desired a wife. As was customary in the day, he ordered his wife from Germany by mail. And in 1884 he built this handsome Colonial Revival from the finest materials his store had to offer as a welcome and a wedding present to her. The 8’10” ceilings, unusually large windows with original wavy glass, fir floors, thick doors with brass hinges & knobs, chestnut stairs, and fantastic original radiators are now incorporated into the very intelligent and artistic renovation recently completed by two talented young Harvard architecture graduates.
