Beautiful country colonial with an interesting biography in the quintessential town of Tamworth. Built with timbers and planks sawn from a nearby mill in the year 1820 by a well known craftsman, this home has been carefully preserved and yet updated to accommodate modern living. Antique details include several windows with swirly handcrafted glass, an original second floor fireplace hearth which was used for cooking way back then, wide pine boards, an autographed kitchen cupboard, and remnants of old fashioned "feather" paintwork and wallpaper. Its history includes several generations as a family homestead, and a boarding house too! Many updates have been made over the more recent years - adding heat to the second floor, installing a new boiler, upgrading wiring and lighting, installing some new windows, some exterior vinyl siding, fresh paint inside and out; portions of new roofing where needed, and a critter proof chimney cap on the main house chimney! This rambling home has many rooms and offers a flexible floor plan that can be perfect for those who wish to work from home. On the second floor the kitchen and studio room are newly renovated. Great AirBnb potential here! The main level has a huge interior work shop space with an attic above. There a very useful barn with an attached lean-to and shed! Best of all -- this site has 201' on the Bearcamp River. Explore - rejuvenate - refresh - settle.
