This beautiful 1880s homestead sits prominently at the base of Wells Hill Road overlooking the village of Lakeville from its generous 2.54 acres.  Its gorgeous Kitchen has been featured in This Old House and rests at the back of the home opening to a Private Deck with views over the spacious yard and Recreation Barn. Covered Porches on the side and wrapping around the front of the home create a beautiful flow throughout the light-filled Dining Room, Living Room, and Library – all with wood-burning fireplaces.  5 bedrooms on the Upper Level all enjoy beautiful sunlight, with the Primary Bedroom Suite at the front of the home. The third floor has a finished Landing leading to an Office with a vantage point toward Selleck Hill.

A large barn, currently used as a recreation space, can lend itself to a multitude of uses and awaits your vision.  The detached garage is perfect for a New England lifestyle. Village sidewalks from the property lead to the heart of Lakeville, Lakeville Lake/Beach, and the Salisbury-Lakeville Bike Path. Enjoy the convenience of in-town living from your own private in-town oasis.
