Some of the authentic features include door hardware, six fireplaces one with oven, fine craftsmanship found in a lot of the finish woodwork/mantels.

    Oh No! Why? Why would any person or any town allow this to happen to a historic house? So very sad. I hope someone buys it who will restore it to it’s former glory.
    Also, I wonder what was walking on the roof? Haha!

    This isn’t a bad price, if the fundamentals of the house are as they’re presented. The location is a bit far from Boston, but still within commutable range to some of the companies in the Boston burbs. A little bit bigger lot would have been nice. But it does require a LOT of work to make it attractive and comfy. I can see the possibilities, and it tempts me to move back to Eastern/Central Mass again from my present location further west in Mass.

    Not far from me, I’ve driven past many times. Upton is convenient for commuting, and while set back and high, it is on Route 140, which is busy. Biggest drawback for me is the haphazard commercial/residential mixture. Not sure how this is zoned. And as often happens, if redone, others get to view a lovely antique home – while your view is of the auto repair yard across the street.

    Upton was one of the smaller mill towns, and has some interesting Victorian homes (at least one spectacular one now a nursing home), and the mill has been converted for housing. In addition to mill owner type houses (in fact, the one next door to this is an interesting one), there are some really neat looking worker level houses. But it seems almost every stretch is punctuated by something unsympathetic if you are along the main drag.

    I’m surprised at how much I like this, even with all the work! There are some real treasures from the past that can be used in restoring. Love this.

    Nothing says “COLD” like plastic on windows and cardboard over fireplaces. If there are no major structural or basic utility problems, this could again be a stunning home and property. Because I’ve lived in small towns, the little neighborhood garage (guys drinking coffee and chewing the fat) and home grocery (kids run for ice cream/gallon of milk in a pinch) aren’t big deals. Lots of nice homes situated around. When I first read it I thought it said “…up the street from the town CANNON” WHAT? It’s how rumors get started. ha.

    Grew up in Massachusetts and have missed it mighty. I immediately felt at home upon seeing the stone fence and this old house. Would love to check out the town and house and think I could feel at home. There is work to be done, but this could be a comfy home once again.
