Welcome to The Historic David Brown Farm! You don\’t want to miss the rare opportunity to own this meticulously restored saltbox colonial Circa 1740. No expense has been spared to restore this home to its original beauty while carefully integrating modern updates. Framed in American Chestnut, the interior of the farm house still retains most of its original integrity including the Georgian entrance, wide pine floors, multiple fireplaces, gunstock posts on second floor, raised paneling above the best parlour fireplace, and early moldings & hardware. The kitchen boasts hickory counter tops, soapstone sink, and walk-in pantry. An 18th Century style barn adds to the charm complete with heat, water, and electricity. Once used to raise & show Tunis Sheep, the perimeter of the field is equipped with high tensile electric fence to start your own working farm. A detached two-car saltbox garage is over-sized for additional storage. Plumbing completely replaced, 200-amp electrical service, oil fired Buderus heating system, full alarm system, and reverse osmosis water filtration system. This home is a must see!
The original dwelling was a four-room farmhouse constructed sometime in the mid to late 1600’s. The house still sits on the same footprint & foundation that existed when the house was built. In 1768 David Brown owned the property and converted the dwelling into a saltbox colonial design. Much of the original 1600’s siding is still visible inside the saltbox jog. Colonel James and Deacon Thomas Barrett from Concord, MA financed the conversion. Jim Barrett was the commander at the Concord Bridge when the fight for independence began. Their association with the American Revolution is well known. David Brown’s eldest son Samuel fought at Bunker Hill, Brandywine, PA. He was a member of the 8th Massachusetts artillery and spent the infamous winter with Washington at Valley Forge. This home has had many caretakers over the years and the history has been well documented for the new owner to keep & enjoy.
