Situated on 1.38 acres in Merriman Hills, the iconic 514 Merriman Road home (originally built by the Hemphill family in 1928) is a 5,300+ square-foot brick Colonial loaded with warmth and character throughout its 6 bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms, and 6 fireplaces. With a large recreation room in the finished attic and a cozy study with original wood paneling, the home has several bonus spaces, including comfortable outdoor living in a fully enclosed courtyard (with pond and slate patio) and a screened side porch.
Featured on the 2017 Sugar Plum Tour of Holiday Homes, this historic house—complete with several pieces of original furniture, including a grandfather clock that will remain with the home—played host to Amelia Earhart for a one-night stay in February of 1929. The original butler’s bell system, with its charming control panel in the kitchen, once summoned the home’s staff who resided above the three-car garage. Today, the maid’s quarters acts as a private living space previously used by current owners as an AirBNB suite.
From 2010 to 2015, the current owners added forced air heating, central air, a new kitchen (with cabinets, countertops, and appliances), and replacement windows (7 Marvin twin casement windows and 23 Andersen Woodwright double hung windows), among other modern updates to this 1920s classic.
