Many home buyers, especially if they have some experience as the ones who are not
buying their very first home, understand better the pros and cons of various types of homes, including the dichotomy between an antique home and a newly (or recently) built one.
One of the main pros of an antique is that it typically comes with lots of character, is not boring, presents creative solutions and features, it’s welcoming and it has that cozy and homey feeling and it can excite anybody who sees it that a new one will rarely offer to owners and visitors.
One of the main pros of a recent construction is that it’s straightforward, has modern day solutions, followed recent building codes, offers more comforts and requires less maintenance or repairs, although pretty flat and with very little flavor making it easier to resell, but it doesn’t usually give much of a warm feeling to owners or guests.
However I want to mention a case in which the downsides of living in an antique are amazingly dealt with and a wise effort to bring the home into 2018 is clear: 968 Plymouth St, in East
Bridgewater, MA, 02333 is a single family home in the colonial style which was built originally in the 1780, but has since been expanded, offering much more room and livable areas outside, upgraded, offering third millennium solutions and meeting building and living modern standards, and very well maintained in a great state. The house is, therefore, move-in ready, and repair free for the foreseeable future, with a minimal maintenance schedule to upkeep it.
If you don’t want a cookie cutter of a house that looks like it was built with Legos, and instead want that special feeling that only the history and character of an antique property can give you, you should definitely head over to the listing of an East Bridgewater home for sale and for rent-to-own for more info and images.
Find out how you can live with modern comforts in a house which is well over 2 centuries old!
If you require more information about the deal and the property, there’s a contact
module on the property for sale website posted above to get in touch with the owners to find out more about it and, in particular, if it’s still available and when it can be seen.
The many features present will require some time to soak in all the info you may have to get, but it’s worth checking out how such an antique home can allow for modern day requirements without needing for major work, time and expenses, like the central A/C system installed, the Post & Beam construction which allows easy reconfiguration of the layout, wide original hardwood boards, 7 fireplaces,
double staircase (convenient, but also very safe) amazingly large rooms for an antique, swimming pool, fence, 2 car garage attached to the house and too much more to list here; it’s better to see it and after a moment when it can be a little overwhelming, you should be able to let it sink in and see how much you get with this home, above all, an amazing history behind it, and certainly a great future ahead!
