Storage is not an issue in this house. With an abundance of closets and 2 full attics there is plenty of room! And the attic can be expanded to be more living space if desired. All the original wood floors are either chestnut or oak. In 2003 the house was lifted with structural Lally columns as well as all new plumbing and electrical were run throughout. A Viesmann furnace and hot water heater efficiently maintain the temperature throughout the 3 heat zones in the house. They run on propane from the commercial sized tank that is buried in the yard. All new siding and foam insulation throughout most of the house was installed in 2012 and the chimneys were rebuilt exactly as they had been in 1740. All roofs were replaced by the current owners as well. The house on its own is a historical gem, but the property also has a beautiful post and beam barn that is individually listed on the National Registry of Historic Places.
