Presenting the John Knap House. This 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath, ca 1705 house is remarkably well preserved and considered museum quality. A rare survivor which the next owner may further enhance to create a one-of-a-kind oasis of beauty, creativity and convenience. The spacious 2186 sqft home has wide plank farmhouse flooring and higher than typical period ceilings. Built in the medieval English post and beam construction style, the house is centered by a massive three-story center chimney built of local stone. Dramatic fireplace surrounds in each of the primary first-floor rooms consistently draw comment: one is raw timber and stone with a beehive oven and a recent wood stove added, the other of rare hand-hewn bolection molding. What was once a working barn is now a detached two-car garage with a loft and studio apartment. The kitchen has been neatly updated and a new roof was installed last summer. The house is situated on an oversize .78 acre parcel framed by hand-laid stone walls and an uncommon array of heirloom greenery: trees of magnolia, specimen of maple and wild cherry, beech, white pine, hickory, and sugar maple; bushes of honeysuckle, lilac and high bush blueberry; flowers of peony, tulip, bleeding heart and hydrangea. A freshly cleared garden plot awaits your green thumb for further enhancements. Beyond its historic attributes this property also presents ample opportunity for expansion or development.
