Character abounds is this antique cape with country charm. Built around 1835 and meticulously cared for through the centuries, walking through this house is like taking a walk back in time. Three fireplaces grace the old kitchen, family room and dining room. Attached workshop/barn has access off the old kitchen. An outbuilding with windows and a chimney has historical significance to Petersham and could be used as a shed, playhouse or chicken coop. A generous backyard is filled with both wild and perennial flowers, plants and berries, is partially bordered by stone walls, and still has plenty of open space for a large garden, firepit, and room to roam or lounge. Just up the street is the town common and country store that has been in continuous operation since 1855. Summers can be spent sitting on the common listening to the Orange Community Band play while enjoying an ice cream from the country store and visiting with neighbors. A quintessential New England Town charmer!
