Tell me all about it: It's hard to top the listing language for this home, which advertises itself as the mullet of Colonials, "all business in the front with a party going on in the back." From the curb, the stone home looks fairly traditional. Out back there is a koi pond, a potting shed, a fire pit and an in-ground pool. Inside there are five bedrooms, three full baths and two powder rooms. Plenty of space for a party.
