  • Remarks addendumThe current owners have done an extraordinary job in restoring and preserving this stunning 16th century home. Next, they purchased a 17th century home from Ipswich, MA; The Perkins House. Skilled craftsman relocated and added the structure to the original home. It is now the first floor master bedroom suite, 3rd bedroom, master bathroom and a library on the third level. The final addition was the family room that was once again thoughtfully designed using materials from the original house. There is simply not enough space to describe all this home has to offer. The owners have lovingly restored this treasure, made additions that enhance the property making it a absolutely spectacular place to call home! Call Lisa for more history and details on this fascinating home!
