Not surprisingly, a historically certified home built in 1807 could use a little updating. The restored original features in the home – wide-plank red pine flooring, five fireplaces and gorgeous woodwork – are lovely. But the kitchen and bathrooms may give you flashbacks to the 80s. The 1980s.
But there’s good news! The asking price has come down more than $50,000 since it was first listed this summer. And there’s a smokehouse. Think of the options. You could smoke your own artisanal bacon. Regulate the temperatures inside and brew your own beer. Make like Ron Swanson and turn it into a woodworking studio.
In addition to the stone smokehouse, this Colonial comes with four large bedrooms and three bathrooms. The master suite includes its own wet bar, so those opportunities are endless as well. All that and a literal white picket fence.
