From the minute you open the door, you know that you have stepped back in time to old world craftsmanship. History indicates that the distinct style of this Federalist home was started in 1860, hand crafted by a ship carpenter, using wood and parts from shipwrecks. The original part of the home is thought to be at least 160 years old, begun before the beginning of the Civil War and Abraham Lincoln becoming President! The unusual character of this home boasts original old-time plank floors, exposed beams, expansive rooms with vaulted ceilings and the sense that you are standing in the presence of carpentry genius. Close your eyes and you can almost hear the sounds of horses drawing carriages on the street.
