Sale Price

A stunning example of the Federal Period style hidden just off the Royalston Common on a picturesque South facing knoll next to the remains of the old bark mill. The house & ell were built by the tanner Isaac Prouty around 1805 . The present house was painstakingly and thoughtfully restored to maintain the historic woodwork and stenciling while having been updated with modern systems & conveniences. There are 5 bedrooms, 8 working fireplaces, wide pine floors and 2 full baths. The ell, which was a woodshed or carriage house, has been transformed into a sunny conservatory opening onto the Southern stonewalled garden. Close by is a barn with gunstock posts and a graceful cupola atop a new standing seam roof. A cart track goes into the woods behind the house & an old road in front leads to the Lawrence Brook. The entire property totals 97.83 Acres of woodlands, hiking trails, stonewalls, &Wildllfe Habitat. High Speed Broadband isCURRENTLY being installed in Royalston!
