This quintessential Morris-Day home was once the builder's personal residence, and designed after his childhood home in England. Over the years, improvements such as current finishes, hardware and lighting, a generator and extraordinary outdoor living & entertaining spaces have been added, all the while retaining the charm and character for which Morris-Day is known. The details such as extensive wood beams, paneling, and molding rich in color coupled with high ceilings, uniquely shaped openings, custom fireplace mantles, expansive windows, skylights, unique light fixtures, window treatments & built-ins continue to showcase the Morris-Day tradition.
