    Build date on record is 1900 but this is at least 30 years older than that.

    Could be really pretty with a bit of redecorating and sprucing up.

    Bethel has a NRHP District for its ship carpenter’s houses, which are smaller but have similar detailing to this one. Maybe this was built a little later for merchant and postmaster William T. Moore, whose store was adjacent. Fine old home in a cool little place!

    Posted just last year, I’m surprised it’s still on the market. Moved to the front page, surely this is an OHD’ers next home! 🙂

    I think you can always count on the build quality of a ship builder’s house.

    The shot taken from the end of the pier looking back towards the house sold me.

    This is a treasure. Looks like a peaceful place with a lot of character. I wouldn’t change much other than some new paint and replace some tile flooring.

    It’s interesting how the living room and dining room both have a very old, untouched feel and that gradually fades as you see the rest of the house.
