The historical significance of this magnificent home dates back to Louisa May Alcott, a resident in Walpole from 1855-1857. Louisa performed in many plays on the 3rd floor of 50 Elm St. Storylines from the classic novel “Little Women” can be traced back to the Alcott Family’s poignant time in Walpole. Majestically situated on a picturesque village Common, this 1800’s Federal style home retains all of its character and charm. A dramatic grand entry hall welcomes guests into the heart of this home, with a formal living room with original Indian shutters, fireplace and beautifully painted period mural sitting comfortably on one side, and the inviting front parlor with matching fireplace sitting on the other. Large dinner parties are a delight in the candlelit dining room w/ butler's pantry. The gourmet kitchent includes granite counters, gorgeous wood cabinetry, state of the art appliances, and a cozy sitting area with woodstove and brick hearth. An adjoining sunroom is the perfect setting for morning coffee with views to the brick courtyard. A comfortable den and an inner sanctum library tie it all together. The sweeping front staircase rises to the 2nd floor grand hall that opens to the screened porch that spans the front of the house. 5 BDRMS, 4 BTHS surround this spectacular center hall. Yet another open stairway takes you to the 3rd floor with 4 more BDRMS and 1 1/4 BTHS, all w/ high ceilings.
