    This is just lovely! I want to pack my bags and move right in. The area looks nice, too. The kitchen is just OK, but the butler’s pantry makes up for it. I would love to see more of the green bathroom… it looks like original tile in there (have to ditch the old glass doors, though).

    Any idea why the pricing history on zillow is so crazy for this house? Looks like it’s been on the market many times recently, once sold and then back on the market within a month with a 60k price cut. I’m sure zillow isn’t entirely accurate, but I’ve never seen a price history like this one.

      I don’t think it sold as recent as it says. It looks like the sold was just a price reduction that was marked as sold instead of “Price Change”.

        It was sold with a large piece if land behind it. And now the developer is trying to sell off the house without the extra 33 acres. There’s a right of way to access the back acres beside the house

    What a nice house! Pretty everywhere with nice Colonial Revival elements and some 20s/30s parts. It has a feeling of balance throughout & dignity. Yeah, Karen, I’d move right in too.

    Picture 15 – the green room – why is that little nook there? If it’s just a closet, why wasn’t the door just put where the arch is? Is there something to the left of the nook that we cannot see? These types of things are one of the things I love about old houses!

      I wondered about that, too. I figured it was just an architectural flight of fancy. But perhaps there’s a little closet on the left, too? I know nowadays people really like their big closets, but maybe at the time two cute little closets were appreciated more. 🙂

      Regina, that setup allows a window and closets along the same wall without closet doors opening into the room. The house I grew up in had that in 3 different bedrooms. One of the small closets was my indoor clubhouse where I’d hide all my secret stuff as a kid.

    Wow. I love it. In fact, that entry is my ‘dream’, with that staircase and banister. I would move in and buy more layers of clothing to afford the renovations that I would do to make that kitchen a chef’s dream! I’m off to buy a lottery ticket, lol.

    I grew up right near this house, the pricing history is accurate. I’m 23, and this house has been up for sale and not sold several times within my lifetime, so the “sold” that is listed on zillow was definitely just a price change. It’s a beautiful house that was originally built by the Schuster family, who owned and ran the Douglas Axe Mill. Just behind this house is another beautiful, the original Schuster Mansion, which sold about 10 years ago, but has a lot of beautiful original details. http://www.zillow.com/homedetails/229-Main-St-Douglas-MA-01516/59244386_zpid/

    395,000 seems awfully cheap for Massachusetts! Is it the neighborhood?

    It looks very similar to the house for sale in Island Falls, Maine! We were looking at it today. These Colonial Revivals are a lot of house for the money! They look like a 18th Century house with many of the amenities and comforts of modern building techniques! A great compromise for many of us! https://www.oldhousedreams.com/2012/08/13/1940-colonial-revival-island-falls-me/

    I’m not a big neo-col fan but this is right place -right time. I think those dormers have to go though or put them on the back where they don’t stick out as much. Like the butlers pantry better than the kitchen.

    Absolutely gorgeous home! I wouldn’t change a thing!

    A lovely home. Wonder how much of it was originally unpainted. And, would there have been those massive mirrors on the closet doors? Don’t care for those, but overall quite beautiful.

    Sold! to me. I love it. A wonderful example of 1930’s style. Designed by Harry Ramsay and I have the original blueprints from 1928. Thanks for all the comments. I enjoyed reading them.
