The Home’s History

Simply known in the neighborhood as “The Colonial”, the original home was built in 1930. Interestingly, the home’s exterior wall structure was not built with traditional lumber, but with large glazed cinder blocks, and then with an exterior solid brick fa├žade. The Colonial’s massive structure seems to have been built to withstand the severest of storms, while the air chambers within the glazed cinder blocks appear to serve as an insulator.  Sitting prominently on one of the highest points overlooking Arcadian Acres, neighbors have shared with us that the original owners of the home actually owned all the land now known as Arcadian Acres. Majestic 80 year old maple trees surround, as if guarding The Colonial, and add to its amazing charm and character.
