    A very good house with most of its original features intact – though I wish the wall to wall carpeting was gone.
    There is a much larger kitchen fireplace behind the one shown – probably with a bake oven in the rear.
    The house is probably earlier than the date given. Houses tended to get remodeled in generational increments (about 25 years). Since there is a rear bake oven (side ovens came later), I expect this house was actually built in the 1750s, then remodeled in 1780.
    I wish real estate agents would use cameras that didn’t distort the dimensions of the rooms – it makes the windows, doors and paneling often look quite odd.
    The curved bannister to the bottom newel post is beautiful.
    The barrel backed cupboard with shaped shelves (to the left of fireplace with the rear oven) is quite nice – deserves a picture of its own.
    None of the door latches shown are original. This house was build in the period of Suffolk (bean) latches, plate latches (with brass nobs), or box locks. Original hardware was not painted black – it was either unpainted, or painted the same color as the surrounding woodwork. Hinges tended to be HL on the interior doors and strap hinges on the exterior doors.

      I am so happy to see I am not the only one that doesn’t like carpeting in older houses. Give me the old wooden floors ever y time !!!

    I don’t care for carpet either, BUT, in New England is gets so cold. The carpet probably provides a bit of comfort and coziness in those cold months.
