. . . Inside, Old World Charm Enchants!

 

Plucked out of its former location in Massachusetts and resettled on its new farm land address in Maine, this venerable and stately saltbox cuts a handsome figure against a backdrop of sky, towering trees and grass.  The white picket fence and an old-fashioned street lamp complete this charming vignette.  True to the character of the exterior, the living spaces inside are filled with old world furnishings and knickknacks.  Having been expanded into a much roomier saltbox, it also underwent a few updates to take advantage of more modern day amenities and conveniences.  What more can one ask when you have that and the chance to enjoy old world ambiance. Let’s take a look at the photos below and tell us what you think on our Facebook Page!

 

This 1740-built Solomen Wood House traveled quite a way’s – about 100 miles, from Boxford, Massachusetts to Cumberland, Maine – before settling on its current plot of land.  Once it arrived, it was expanded to a Colonial “saltbox,” whose pitched roof slopes down the back, and now measures approximately 4,000 square feet.

 

Sitting on 25 acres of farmland, the historic three-bedroom farmhouse boasts charming old-world details like rustic exposed beams, wide-plank floorboards, multiple brick fireplaces, wood paneling, and gorgeous woodwork throughout.

 

. . . the property also comes with several outbuildings including a 1700s carriage house, hemlock timber-framed barn and storehouse.
