About This Old House

Off-marketFinally! An affordable historic home full of original character and ready for you to move right in. The Starr-Stow house was built in 1765- a copy of the original land title dated October 30, 1765 (2 days before the Stamp Act went into effect), hangs in the keeping room which has its original floor-to-ceiling plank paneling, wide board oak and pine floors, exposed beams and a massive restored and lined fireplace with original crane. Charm abounds throughout the house with a formal dining room, many historic plank and paneled doors, original wide board floors, and vaulted ceilings and exposed beams in the upstairs bedrooms. Mechanicals and insulation were all redone in the 1980’s with more recent updates including central air conditioning. The house has six rooms and two full baths including one with a claw foot tub. This home sits on more than one third of acre on a quiet dead end street, and the partially fenced private yard has mature plantings as a well as a prolific strawberry patch. Owner planned to stay in house forever but heeded the call of another historic home that needed to be saved. Favorite things about the house: cozying up in front of a roaring fire while dinner warms hanging on the crane and sitting on the slate patio under the flowering maple leaf viburnum smelling the lilacs and gazing at the rhododendrons in all their glory. This home is within walking distance of Wadsworth Falls State Park and the Wadsworth Mansion both of which have beautiful walking trails. Home comes with a file including research on the history of the house and the Stow family.
