The Richardson Tavern was constructed in 1730 and expanded in 1777 to accommodate more travelers along the Post Road. The house features nine fireplaces and a second floor ballroom with a barrel vaulted ceiling. This home has great original detail while having many mechanical updates including new septic and a young 11 zone heating plant. Original details include wide plank flooring, raised panel end walls, original doors and hardware and a full walk up attic. The property includes several acres of meadow and garden and abuts MDC conservation lands. The well restored two story barn is ideal for all hobbyists. Truly an opportunity to have a great revolutionary era house. Easy access for commuting with the benefits of a country setting. Loads of space for whatever your needs. Ready for your decorative touch.

    Great house with amazing history, not over-restored, and casually decorated without too much museumy stuff. Nice country setting, a little too close to the road and the greenhouses aren’t so pretty, though these very old places are often in worse in-town locations. Big too, and the price seems reasonable.

    This one takes me home to the 1836 house in which I grew up. Wide plank floors, original doors and hardware. I’m homesick.

    that remodel in 1777 is fairly modern… 🙂
    It has such a nice feel to it, it seems to relax and energize with it’s simplicity.

    That room with nothing in it but the spindle gives me the willies for some reason. I wonder if the spindle comes with the house.

    To say I want, I want, I want this house would be putting it mildly!
