    Needs so much back dating but I’d save it over that one room, you could call it a library. 🙂 I wonder if there are any stick work patterns under the siding?

      I would call it a den if I lived there. It is interesting that you can get glimpses of the stair in that pic and it looks like it should be a featured photo. The wood appears to be flame birch, which raises the house a lot in my estimation. The buyer may find lots of rare woods under the paint on original trim throughout the house.

    The house has radiators, yet there is an original floor vent in front of the fireplace. An early attempt at combustion air for the fireplace?

    Never seen that before.

      Old houses frequently have had different heating systems installed over the years.

      They used to use an empty flue in the chimney to use the heat from the brick when the fireplaces were going to transfer the heat to other parts of the house. I have a few of these in my current project house.

    Built for Charles C. Hitchcock (1846-1937), a dry goods merchant with interests in real estate and banking. He and his wife Maria Eldora Breckinridge raised their 3 children here. Hitchcock was an outspoken supporter of workers rights, and an unsuccessful candidate for Mass. Secretary of State on the Socialist ticket.

    That’s a low price for a livable house of this size and original quality – I hope it finds a suitable love match.

    Speaking of multiple personalities – ! It would be a challenge, but worth the effort, to bring some cohesive originality back to this house…
