  • PROS This antique home on a wooded corner lot has a hearth room constructed in the 1700s and a great room with a timber-framed cathedral ceiling, built in 1860 and once used as a barn and smokehouse. Period details like wide-pine floors and latch-lock doors remain, but the home has been modernized and expanded, offering a spacious window-lined kitchen with recessed lighting, custom cherry cabinetry, granite countertops, and a full-size freezer. The master includes a sitting room with a fireplace (the home has nine, but the one in the study isn’t functional) and an en suite bath with double vanity, a shower, and a tub with jets. CONS The outbuilding needs work.
