From the Zillow listing:


This gracious gem in the heart of Manchester is filled with Victorian details and has been lovingly preserved and updated. Constructed of brick – thought to be manufactured in nearby Bennington sometime in the late 1800s – it’s one of town’s most distinctive historic properties, and presides on over a half-acre of private yard surrounded by mature trees. It’s also a convenient short walk to nearby shops and restaurants. Classic design elements include arched and bay windows, marble lintels, exterior trim with gingerbread cutouts and spindle work, and a marble walk leading to a big front porch. Inside, the warm patina of the original – and distinctive – Douglass fir flooring balances spacious rooms with high ceilings, lovely crown moldings, original doors and hardware. Gorgeous vintage window frames have been updated with thermopane windows. The front parlor offers a large bay window and window seat, wood-burning fireplace and an elegant staircase to the second floor offset by columns. An adjacent 28×13 double parlor is accessed through two sets of French doors. There’s a formal dining room with a pressed tin ceiling, a big, eat-in kitchen, thoroughly updated with new countertops and cabinetry and appliances(2016) w/pantry and a (propane) “wood” stove for ambiance as well as a half bath Upstairs, the hallway with its unique curved wall leads to three bedrooms with big windows, and a full bath and dressing room/walk in closet (was a fourth bedroom). In the basement, there’s a newly installed oil burner as well as a washer and dryer. The carriage barn behind the house serves as a one-car garage, and offers additional living space on two floors; a huge 21×25 room upstairs(ideal for office or guest space) and a 3/4 bath with room for a small kitchen downstairs, heated by propane hot air heat.
