This 4,000 square foot colonial had doubled in size in 1998 and then the Harrises renovated this past year. They reconfigured the dining room, refinished wood floors, painted and added new furnishings. The home has all new exterior cedar wood shingles, cedar shutters, a new paint job and extensive new plantings around the property.
