Seven Oaks was originally built as a guest lodge by Orvis Dunham in the manner of a distinguished personal residence using the best craftsmen and finest materials of the time. He commissioned a fabulous fireplace built from his extensive collection of native limestone encrusted with geodes, fossils and crystals for the living room. The interior is marked by great woodwork, custom built-ins, paneled doors, plus thick interior and exterior walls. Dunham managed to create a pervasive feeling of privacy along with wonderful views of the mountains from this convenient location atop Courthouse Hill.
The elegant two-story main section is perfect as a turnkey private residence. Generous rooms feature refinished oak floors, lovely architectural details plus restored bathrooms. Infrastructure updates include a new furnace, attic insulation, roof/gutter restoration and more. Three finished basement rooms are perfect for family recreation/fitness or as a separate apartment and the potential for private spaces at Seven Oaks is plentiful.
