    With period furniture, this could really be a showplace.

      This place would make a fantastic gift shop! Or home! It is the real deal, and they are not making any of them anymore.

    Cute house. Could look very nice with a little work and loving attention. I like how they list it as 2000 and 1 square feet for the size. Must have measured very, very precisely! 🙂

    How I love center chimney colonials! This place is awesome, though I would LOVE to see more pictures. I don’t even depise the kitchen! *grin*

    When the barn is attached to the house doesn’t it seem like common sense to include interior photos of that too?

    Otherwise this house is fine.

    This is a great house! I have a question for those who have restored old houses. When I view the exterior pictures of this house, the siding (though wonderfully original) looks like it’s been bare to the elements for so long that it’s beyond repair. It’s a bit warped and weather beaten. Or am I wrong, and coat of paint would heal this? Just curious to know should I ever find a house like this one close to me, etc. Thanks!

      I’ve been by this house many times over the years. As I recall, it was painted/stained gray. Yes, siding will deteriorate if left exposed, but oddly enough, really old siding seems to hold up better than newer wood.

        Our 1896 house was mostly bare wood from years of no paint. Our professional painter said our cedar siding “sealed” itself and becomes slick thus preserving itself. He had to sand it all to get the new paint to adhere. He said the only boards that rotted were the ones where water got behind the siding

    I’ve always liked his house. On a fairly busy stretch however. Winchendon (“Toy Town”) has some nice old homes, and one, a Victorian now used by the historical society, is a stunner.

    I am in LOVE! I would live here in a heart beat! If only it were in Michigan!

    I never get tired of wide plank floors.

    I surprised myself with my reaction, this is a great house!!!

    I love this house! but too bad it was painted, as the original stain is such a beautiful, New England look. Strip it and the floor in the kitchen, too! Wide pine floors are a thing of the past. Cape Cod houses look so tiny, but I’m always amazed at how much room they have. Winchendon really is in the boonies, though!

    Too far away or I’d buy it. Love the kitchen too

    I’ve noticed that the styles of the old houses on OHD have not been mentioned in the introductory paragraphs for the past day or so. I hope this is not a trend, because I enjoy trying to identify the style of a house from the first photo and then reading about it to see if I’m right.

      No, just when it’s a combo of styles or when I’m not sure of the style. I usually called this a Cape Cod (yes, it’s the shape not the style) but thought maybe I need to stop doing that. But I look at this house and seeing modifications from the original style and wasn’t sure what to call it.

    Thanks, Kelly. OHD is a wonderful service. I love old houses and OHD takes me around and into places I would never see otherwise. It’s become part of my morning routine. I owe you a substantial debt of gratitude.
