It’s not often you find an elegant mansion for under $1 million—unless it’s of the McMansion style—but this antique Colonial is delivering on all counts. Located on 3.5 acres about 1.5 hours west of Boston, the eight-bedroom, five-bath home was constructed in 1900 and painstakingly restored in the 1980s.
On the market for the second time in 118 years, the shingle-style house measures 4,388 square feet with spacious porches overlooking the rear lawn. Inside, gleaming wood floors have been well-cared for, bathrooms feature claw-foot tubs, and the house boasts an astonishing seven fireplaces.
There’s plenty of space on the property to build a barn and the house backs to a trail system for hiking, riding, and biking.
