There’s no shortage of historic houses in Salem, Massachusetts, and the latest to cross our desks is this two-bedroom, two-bath beauty. Built in 1750, the Federal-style house offers a gabled roof and a symmetrical three-bay facade in the center.
The front door sits regally in a hip-roofed enclosed portico that’s framed by windows and shutters, and the home’s most notable feature is its large center chimney.
Inside, 1,488-square-feet showcase the property’s historic roots, including wide pine floors, multiple fireplaces, and raised paneling. Exposed beams and touches of brick flooring also provide authenticity, and a walk-up attic offers the potential for expansion.
Overall, it’s not a sprawling or overly-done home, and the historic charm is there. If you like what you see, 8 Upham Street is on the market now for $419,000.
