Known as "The William Prentiss House," built circa 1855, this very special home awaits your updates and care. The house is situated on a large 9,797 square foot parcel of land, which may allow for the opportunity to expand this enchanting home. Offering what you would expect from a home of this age; charm, grace, character, period detailing and yes, the need for repairs and renovations. Whether restoring or expanding to create a new future, this home presents great potential in a lovely setting. There are three fireplaces, the functioning one is located in the living room. Adjacent to the rear of the house, off the kitchen, is a barn-type structure with terrific character and great potential. We respectfully ask interested buyers to have an inspection, prior to making an offer, as this home is being sold in "as is" condition. The main roof was installed in 1999, the boiler in 2003, the oil tank was replaced in 2005 and the home is located in the Brackett School District! (MLS #71859193)
