Don't miss this opportunity to own one of Salem's first and oldest homesteads! Built in 1698, this home offers all of the charm of the 17th century with the conveniences of today. Its solid post and beam construction support a center chimney with four fireplaces throughout the home with the master bedroom having its own fireplace. Other original features include wide pine plank flooring in the second-floor bedrooms which have been meticulously restored as well as a beehive oven in the dining room. Exposed hand-hewn beams throughout tell the story of the craftsmen who constructed this home in the traditional manner of the day.
Upon entering the side door from the driveway you are greeted with floor to ceiling cabinetry currently being used as a pantry and mudroom. From there, you enter the kitchen which enjoys ample light thanks to its beautifully vaulted ceiling. The kitchen has been upgraded with classic subway tile backsplash and exquisite brushed granite countertops. Additionally, the solid wood cabinetry offers space to display
dishware and plenty of storage for appliances and other cookware. The window above the sink looks out to the patio which is a wonderful spot for outdoor dining. From the kitchen, you enter the dining room which features the largest hearth in the home. Currently it houses a heating stove which can be hooked up to an outdoor propane tank or removed to use the hearth as it would have been historically.
