Antique charmer, right in the village! This home's earliest section was built by the famous lumberman, F.G. Harwood, in the 1850s, with a large second section added in 1900, followed by several improvements including a large master suite built over a two-car garage in more recent years. This sprawling home features 4 bedrooms plus an office, 3 1/2 bathrooms, a formal dining room, large living room as well as a front parlor with wood pellet stove. The kitchen is ample and opens to a deck patio on one side and a large attached garage on the other. Most of the wood floors are luscious new Brazilian cherry, combined with antique maple upstairs, and pale bamboo in the new master suite. There is definitely a feel of the rambling farmhouse in this home, artfully combined with contemporary elements and comforts. And while it has been extensively remodeled, there is still a lot one could do to make it your own. The house sits on a large 1.1 acre lot, right in the quaint village of East Dorset, a short distance to Manchester, and minutes to the highway. This large, cozy home would make the perfect place for a growing family, or to develop into multiplex housing with a few units, as there is already the footprint of a duplex here with two kitchen hook-ups, basements, and furnaces. Recent zoning changes will make this home “mixed-use residential”, opening up a host of creative possibilities for small business as well as housing. Come make it your own!
