Listed by Florence Ruffner of Ruffner Real Estate

Past and present, authenticity and artful restoration meet in this four-bedroom, three-bath antique on 4.74± acres, thirty minutes from the coast and less than an hour from Boston. Built in 1720 by Captain Joseph Bartlett and enlarged in the 1740s and 1790s, it remained in the Bartlett family until the turn of the twentieth century. Modern-era revisions and restorations have ensured that period detail and contemporary comfort are in equal measure the hallmark of this notably fine example of eighteenth-century New England domestic architecture. Sited amid luxuriant perennial and herb gardens, stately old trees, stone walls, meadows, and woodlands, the 3500 square-foot main house features seven fireplaces, a vaulted brick root cellar, a year-round garden room, and--at its heart--a large, well-appointed, and welcoming modern kitchen with breakfast area overlooking the grounds that was featured in two design magazines. Thirteen light-filled rooms across a spacious and inviting floor plan offer exposed beams, wainscoting, raised paneling, wide pine floors, built-ins, and beautiful vistas from every window. The adjacent two-story shingled barn has three stalls on its ground floor and heated office or studio space on the second floor. Comfortable and classic, the Joseph Bartlett homestead is a rare and charming find.
