- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Opened for business as a bed and breakfast in 2007 The Green Leaf Place is one of Bloomfield’s important historic properties. Built in the English Tudor style with natural brick and oak trim in 1912 by Henry Clay Taylor, the original lot was 1 3/4 a. in size and included the presently standing two-story carriage house. From 2005 to 2007, the current owners renovated and redecorated rooms to its current beautiful condition, also adding a bathroom upstairs so that all three guest rooms would have private baths. The home has been offered for tours including the third floor theatre space which may, in the future, become useable for community events. The carriage house in the future will likely serve as a honeymoon suite. The current owners have reintroduced the original name of the historic home, this time offering it as a bed and breakfast facility featuring English Tudor and craftsman-style ambiance. ... more less
