John & Cindy Farrell – Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage
Sold July 2013 – Historic Lords Hill home for sale in Wenham, Massachusetts. See homes currently on the market in Hamilton & Wenham, MA. This property was part of what is currently referred to as “Lord’s Hill” in Wenham, Massachusetts. This area reached the Beverly town line and was referred to as “Lords Farm”.
This nine room, three full bath, 2,486 SF home has retained a true farmhouse, cottage feel. With bright sunny rooms and summer breezes. Cozy in the colder months with four fireplaces. This colonial style home built in 1810 still retains many of the older quality features. There are hard pine and fir floors, many large windows, two stairways, and built ins. Set on a pastoral 1.3 acre lot and bounded in the front by a beautiful stone wall.
This home has been a two family home but is now used as a single family with an accessory apartment. There are two separate heating systems.
The first floor has a cottage kitchen, large dining room with a wood stove in the fireplace. The living room with a fireplace is at the front of the house and there is a first floor bedroom and full bath. There is a notable room off the first floor kitchen. This room was once the dairy or milk room. It is quite a special room with a concrete floor and windows on three sides. This would work as a family room or office. The current owners thought it would be great space to expand the kitchen in to.
The second floor has three additional bedrooms and two full baths. One of the bedrooms could be used as a living room. The second kitchen on this floor is larger with a fireplace and room for a dining area.
Many possibilities for the arrangement and use of the space. Also has great possibilities to vary as time goes on and needs change.
