Property Description

First time on the market in over 30 years, the Staples house is a meticulously maintained Victorian mini-estate. It features a 2800 square foot main house, a large barn with 2 bedroom apartment above, 2 detached garages, gazebo, and beautifully manicured grounds. The main house has hardwood floors throughout, kitchen with pantry and granite countertops, formal dining room, sauna, front and side porches, and an unfinished third floor. This area could be transformed into additional living space. House, barn, and garages are uniformly painted in a style typical of the period. The interior woodwork an trim are preserved in their original condition. The spacious 2.34 acre lot has 238' of frontage on Spear stream, and contains a legal half-acre lot. Lot has separate well and septic which can be split off from the rest of the property. A rare find, and a must see to be fully appreciated.
