The sky blue doors and trim on this old gal make her sing!
Located in Halifax, Massachusetts this handsome colonial-era home is currently listed for sale for $550,000.
This home has been added on to over the centuries but the original part of the structure dates back to 1717.
A great bonus feature is the matching studio structure at the rear of the home.
Have a look at the primitive interior…
Remarkably, this is the first time this home has been on the market in over 50 years.
Historic features of the home include wide pine floors, 1700’s wood paneling, exposed beams, and original interior doors with working hardware.
Also, note that this home has a total of seven fireplaces!
The “newest” fireplace is located in the large vaulted-ceiling kitchen and dates back to the year 1900.
There are so many wonderful rooms in this house, that it’s difficult to pick a favorite.
But library rooms are always special.
There are three bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms in this home.
One of the great things about old houses are the mysteries… like this oddly placed pew below:
Anyone who has ever owned an old house has inevitably uttered the words:
“I wonder why they did that?”
There’s not a whole lot remarkable about the bathrooms, but there is this soaking tub with the tiniest window above almost obscured by the artwork:
Remember the detached studio in the backyard?
It is currently being used as an office.
The home and studio sit on two country acres along Route 105 in historic Plymouth County.
Imagine living in a house that dates back to 1717!
