In 1912 Senator J. Griswold Webb built this majestic six-bedroom, six-bathroom colonial with five fireplaces that now sits on fifteen glorious acres. It could now be transformed into a Bed and Breakfast. This stunning true center hall colonial has front and rear doors with a beautiful archway. The formal dining room has a glass built in cabinets, a fireplace, and a hidden floor to ceiling safe. The generous sized main rooms have hard wood floors throughout, original detailed millwork, and plaster walls. The well-appointed rooms have tall ceilings, and the abundance of windows and French doors give the interior rooms extraordinary light. The living room has original glass built in bookcases and a fireplace. The study has oak built in bookcases and the full bathroom has splendid marble and tile. The enclosed porch off the living room runs the width of the house and has the original windows and doors. The jade colored tile floor is exquisite and the oversized stone fireplace is perfect for large gatherings on cool nights. The kitchen is sizable, quite suitable for a house of this size. This is a marvelous house for entertaining family and friends. The primary bedroom is on the second floor with an en-suite full bathroom, fireplace, walk in closet and dressing room. There are two additional full bathrooms that service the other four bedrooms. One other bedroom has a private entry, dressing area and fireplace. There are two additional rooms, that at one point were servant's quarters and could be used for storage, or large closets. The unfinished lower level has tremendous potential. It has several rooms, a wine cellar, cedar closet and another floor to ceiling safe. The old billiard room with its stone fireplace could be restored to its former glory. The house is a two-family residence. There is a two-story guest wing with a fireplace, separate entrance, kitchen, three bedrooms and three bathrooms. Ideal for guests, in-laws or for use as a rental property. Additionally, there is a 1500 square foot barn and three car detached garage. Very few houses remain in the county like the Beck House with unspoiled original details from this by gone era. The land boasts mature landscaping, ancient lilac, and magnolia trees in addition to other specimen trees. Originally a Guernsey farm, it was leased by Jack Dempsey's trainer as a training camp for the prize fighter prior to the building of the great house. This property is in the Millbrook School District.
