Step inside one of Norfolk's gems in this week's featured listing.

Built in 1893, the mansion at 320 West Freemason Street in Norfolk is a classic Colonial. It has four bedrooms, five bathrooms, and two powder rooms, all on three stories and a quarter-acre lot.

As soon as you walk in, the exquisite woodwork and thoughtful details welcome you. There are five fireplaces throughout the home and beautifully framed open doorways. You can go from dinner to cocktails by the fire in just a few steps.

The kitchen is a lovely open galley design, with a full eat-in island and an adjacent lounge space. The extended gas range will be perfect for cooking big holiday meals, and you can count on ample space for your helpers.


The first floor is full of charming nooks like the sunny breakfast room, side parlor, and a library. A bit on the old-fashioned side, perhaps, but it's such an elegant, formal layout.

The master bedroom is a vision of his and hers coexistence. Not only is the room large enough for a sitting area; there are also two enormous dressing rooms complete with elaborate walk-in closets.

Before we head to the backyard, check out this spacious rooftop terrace. Wouldn't this be the perfect place for morning yoga or a tidy herb garden?

Out back, the calm, clear waters of the pool are surrounded by a smooth stone deck. There is more than enough room for loungers and an outdoor dining set. Yours will definitely be popular on warm weekends!


The four-car garage is outfitted with hydraulic lifts, making car maintenance a breeze for auto enthusiasts. Have you ever seen such a cool setup in a private home?
