DESCRIPTION

Set in the quintessential New England town of Bridgewater, this antique sits on almost 3 magical acres. The grounds offer endless possibilities, calling to the nature lover or gentleman farmer, bring your horses, plant your gardens, whatever you desire. With mature plantings in place, you can sit on patio made of Roxbury granite and enjoy the peace and quiet of country living. Old stone walls and beautiful maples surround the property making for stunning scenery all year round!

This colonial farmhouse, listed as being built in 1890, probably predates that in parts. Many of the original features have been maintained, including chestnut wide board floors, a fireplace surrounded by chestnut paneling, wide board floors though out most of the rest of the home. So many nooks and crannies to delight the antique lover in you! The "meeting room" is wonderful, open beams, cathedral ceiling, wide board floors, stone fireplace, and a small library adjacent. There are 12 over 12 windows in the meeting room, a lovely custom built cabinet put in by the previous owner and the room is steeped in local history. This room was the place the local John Birch Society met, as well as Moral Re-Armamement Society! So rich in heritage and character, this historic gem and its remarkable beautiful surroundings is the perfect canvas for a masterful renovation!

The large barn, currently used for woodworking projects can easily be converted back to a horse barn or garage.
