Classic post and beam colonial, a easy walk to Petersham Center, built by Stephen Goddard ca 1797. Masterful exterior restoration in 2005 with new windows, siding and rigid insulation on the roof to enable exposed beams. Interior restoration begun in 1995 and completed over 10 year period. Superb attention to original details. 4 large bdrms and two large baths, both with clawfoot tubs, and one of each on the first floor. Family room adjacent to the kitchen is massive with 10' picture window to view birds and wildlife in rear of the property, and a woodstove to make it cozy. Dining room offers many options with 40x12 size and FP. Barn is oak post and beam recent addition with 2 car capacity, 8x40 screen house, and solar panels on the roof (not leased). Lot across the street has amazing gardens for vegetables or flowers, and existed before bylaws so it should be buildable if you ever need to do that. Land behind house slopes gently to distant wetland, plenty of space for animals.
