We are so lucky in Massachusetts to have such a variety of homes to choose from! We have everything from brand new construction to homes that predate the Revolutionary War, so no matter what type or style you prefer, chances are you can find it here. Personally, I’ve always been a big fan of older homes (but didn’t end up buying one, since my husband has a weird little thing about wanting his floors to be level…), so in honor of Throwback Thursday, here are a couple of local antique homes for sale this week.
Currently listed for $439,000, 215 South Street in Wrentham is the perfect example of an antique home with all the updates and conveniences necessary for modern life. Built in 1880, this 4 bed, 2 1/2 bath home has a fully updated kitchen with granite countertops and stainless steel appliances, gas heat and central air, newer windows, and a Trex deck, but still retains beautifully detailed woodwork and a claw-foot tub in the master bath (accompanied by a separate tiled shower enclosure). Fortunately, there’s an Open House this Sunday, January 11, from 12:00 PM to 2:00 PM, so you can come and see it for yourself!
Currently listed for $229,900, 2 Winter Street in Franklin is a 4 bed, 1 1/2 bath home located within walking distance to the Franklin/Dean College MBTA station and all of our downtown shops and restaurants. Built in 1900, this home retains the turn-of-the-century features that give it lots of character, and with a small lot, it’s a great condo alternative for those of you who hate yardwork. If you have hobbies that need lots of space, check out the workshop with electricity, heat, and AC.
Let me know if you’re interested in either of these beautiful antiques!
