What a grand old home in the Heart of North Haverhill Village. The woodwork is exceptional and the promise of a better day is in the decorating. Lots of room for everyone or thing. Outside is a wonderful old time wrap around porch and a spacious surrounding yard which includes an in ground pool! The house has a new roof but the old attached barn needs major renovation or removal and is not safe to view.

    She has the potential to be grand. I love the old cabinets in the kitchen. It needs some work in there, but I hope the cabinets survive. Lovely old lady.

    A nice house here without any attempt at being pretentious. The 1899 date could be correct although some details look a bit older. No matter, I find the layout of buildings on the property to be interesting. This configuration of connected buildings is fairly common in the Northeast (farm houses, especially) but usually the buildings are from different dates. The carriage house does look like a turn of the last century version so perhaps everything truly is from the same time period. The stone (?) wall in the basement looks like its made of huge blocks like Herod’s Temple in Jerusalem but I suspect what I’m seeing is concrete sections parged to the brick wall behind it. With just over an acre of land there are many possibilities here.

    Hi Ernie,
    Yes, that appears to be brick dust. It is caused by a process known as effloresence or, less formally, “rising damp”. A relevant article: https://www.nitterhousemasonry.com/tips-advice/what-is-efflorescence/ It happens when moisture (or standing water) soaks or wicks up through the bricks and, as it dries out, mineral salts are left behind. Old clay flower pots often have these mineral deposits coating the outside as fired clay can still be pourous. (unless vitrified from being fired at a high temperature as in paving bricks)

    The passage of moisture through the bricks weakens the brick as well as mortar and/or plaster. Over time, especially in soft fired bricks, the brick will disintegrate. Structural failure can then occur. The fix is to find the source of the moisture and take steps to prevent it from soaking into the bricks. Various sealers exist but in places where efflorescense is widespread, best to bring in a pro to abate the problem. The problem here doesn’t look too serious but over time will only get worse unless the moisture or seepage issues are taken care of.
