This Circa 1803 home in the Watson section of Ashfield offers authentic historic features, a large barn, and over 20 acres with 1674' of frontage and a pastoral view. The post-and beam house offers authentic features: wide plank floors, a fireplace w/baking oven, built-in ammunition drawers, latched wooden doors, 5 fireplaces, and exposed beams. One chimney even has a large ash pit. The ash collected from the basement was used to make lye, an ingredient of soap. Slabs of granite capped the fieldstone foundation to keep mice out. Water is provided by a spring. This home has been lovingly maintained by the same family for over 60 years. It even has an antique wooden wall phone where it was when originally installed. The house originally featured a gun room that was converted into a bar open to the formal living room. There are 4 bedrooms upstairs, two of which have fireplaces. The master bedroom has an accessory room and direct access to unfinished space. This is a rare find.
