Unique home built in 1837, this is a history lover's dream! Many original details have been preserved. Beautiful Indian shutters in the living room, original molding, wide plank flooring, and a working wood burning stove in the kitchen are just a few of the unique features. Enter through the front foyer. To the right is a spacious bedroom, and to the left is the living room from which you can enter to the dining room and kitchen beyond. The dining room has a lovely hearth and sunlight streaming in the windows. The kitchen overlooks the large barn and backyard. Off the kitchen is a 3-season porch. Also on this floor is an office space and a full bath that is conveniently accessed from both the office and the bedroom. Head upstairs from the front foyer and you'll come to the 2nd floor which has two more bedrooms. One bedroom has a hallway beyond which leads to a room that could serve as an office, craft room or whatever your mind's eye envisions. From here a back stairwell has 2 doors accessing the large clean attic space and leads you down to the 1st floor side door. The home's interior has been freshly painted and the exterior has been completely restored over the last 10 years. Updates include a rebuilt forced hot air system, sump pump, and hot water heater. Situated on 2.5+/- acres, this home has a large barn that is perfect for storage, hobbies, or a place to keep your horses. Just a short drive to Nottingham's residents only beach and Pawtuckaway State Park.

    Maybe a tad earlier than 1837. The white may be a little scary to some but a good base to do something with. I really love the floors of this period, unpainted and painted.

    I like this house a lot. Love the wide plank floors and I think they look just fine painted. This all feels very cozy to me. I could be happy living in this house. The exterior color is just right.

    What is picture #13 or #14? Is it to heat water?

      I’m just guessing but I think the top opening is to deposit ashes and then there is a cleanout below for when they have cooled/accumulated. Maybe they get set aside for use in the garden the following Spring. That may be completely wrong but I like the sound of it so I’m sticking with it.

      As with other places inside, it echoes the exterior color. I really really like that design strategy , too.

      I’m guessing it’s a heated tub to do the clothes washing, you lift out the tub, set a fire below and then fill with water for the washing, then remove the ashes through the small door.

      They were very common here through the mid-nineteenth century up until the 1940’s when washing machines became available and are always made of copper to retain the heat, and are actually called “Coppers”.

    • I think Ive seen a program where historians were living a year in a Victorian farm and there was a set up like that which they used to heat water and they did their clothes washing in there.

    What a great house! I don’t really see anything that would need immediate attention, but one thing did arouse my curiosity; all of the fireplaces are on interior walls, and the stairway turns just like you would expect of a center-chimney colonial. The visible chimneys are on the gable ends, and while you see them travel through the house, they apparently go to the cellar. I would bet the farm that there is an original center chimney in there that has been take down below the roof line…and then the next question would be if it could be rebuilt and safely used. There are many still in use across New England, but they were notorious for fires; my grandmother’s ancestral home in Maine (c1780) burned to the cellar hole in the mid-1920s during a nor’easter. Her mother’s cousin (in his 80s) lived alone, and tried for several hours to reach someone to come put out the fire in the chimney; no one could or would help, and after about 3 hours, it caught the attic afire and *POOF*; 130 years of family history, gone in 45 minutes… 🙁

    What a gloriously bright and cheerful home!
    I’d call it move-in condition, barring any inspection issues! Someone has a real treasure here!
