Built in 1790, this stately federal-style Colonial, featured in Colonial Homes Magazine, has a grand foyer, early millwork, with many fireplaces still intact, beautiful main stairway with three spiral balusters per tread. Original stenciling has been reproduced throughout the front hall as a tasteful remembrance of period details. This sprawling home has two barns, interior first floor Indian shutters with 12 over 12 window panes and a side entry opening into a hall that spans the width of the house. “For love and goodwill” – the salutations given when this grand Colonial was bestowed as a wedding present in 1790 and here Louisa May Alcott read excerpts from her book, Little Women to local residents when she lived in the quintessential town of Walpole. The remodeled kitchen includes double wall ovens, a work island with stovetop, butler pantry, wide pine flooring and a pine mantel encompassing the kitchen fireplace – which contains a beehive oven. Over the years this house has undergone considerable renovation and redecoration with the addition of an in-law suite. Imagine sitting on your side porch enjoying your favorite refreshment while overlooking the pastoral setting with mature landscaping, unique and expansive grapevines and a horse pasture!
