The iconic Octagon House, Dr. Horace Wakefield House, is a landmark in Reading Center! If you are a historic home lover like me, this house will completely amaze you! The details + special features are unlike anything else. The exterior first impression is the first clue; porches & eaves have heavy zigzag trim + brackets, some of which have carvings resembling gargoyles. A side screen porch is a favorite spot! Step inside to find a stunning foyer w/ gracious curved staircase, the site of many prom & wedding photos. Every room beyond is unique & has beautiful trim details & true craftsmanship that will always look amazing. High ceilings & quarter-sawn oak floors add to the grandeur. And if these walls could talk - a bookcase on the 2nd floor reveals a hidden staircase to a third-floor cupola, designed to be used for the Underground Railroad. For today's lifestyle, the kitchen is updated w/ maple cabinets, stainless appliances & huge island, mudroom w/ radiant heat, etc. SO much to love!
