Choosing a home among all the charms Sum­merville had to offer was not an easy task, but the quiet atmosphere on Kings Way made the house an easy sell.

“The high ceilings and the first-floor bedrooms are what we liked about the house,” Carol Bennett said. “We came from a house with 8-foot ceilings.”

Though the four-bedroom, 3 ½-bath home was built more than 100 years ago, the original structure of the house still remains, with unique built-in cabinets, window seats and wood-paneled ceilings. Having a wealth of windows, the home exudes natural light to spotlight the Bennetts’ stylish yet homey decor.

The Bennetts have spent a great deal of time remodeling and fine-tuning their home, including converting a tucked-away downstairs powder room and opening an enclosed porch to reveal a private yet peaceful patio overlooking the pool.
