For Jane and Jim Fitzpatrick, tradition is the foundation on which their home is built. Here, holidays are filled with tinsel and togetherness, family and fine china. They found this home just a few years ago, and after having lived near a golf course for over 20 years, they decided to find a home better suited to entertaining the whole family. The result of their search is this stunning English-style home trimmed in traditional flair and full of dazzling festivities around the holidays.
From the outside, this home features a strikingly symmetrical appearance, with arched windows, charming shutters, and the integrity of enduring English architecture. The sparkling glass front door has an arched transom window overhead, making it an attractive focal point. Flanked by columns and lanterns, the front entry is the perfect place for an elegant, lighted Christmas garland to welcome visitors. “When we saw this house, we loved it,” Jane explains. “You can tell it’s very substantial and well built. Plus the location is perfect! It’s not far from where we lived before so Jim can still enjoy the golf course, and we’re close to all of our favorite spots.”
