There’s something undeniably special about owning a piece of history – some magical charm that takes its form in original floor-to-ceiling windows, thoughtful details and nooks, wooden shutters, rocking porches and old barns. This four-bedroom, two-bathroom Italianate historic gem has all of that and so much more.

“This circa 1860 Orient Village home is a very rare example of most treasured architecture in the historic district that has remained in the same family continuously since its construction,” said listing agent Lori Feilen of Town & Country Real Estate. “A truly beautiful antique home with architectural details throughout the home in original condition.”

The 2,300-square-foot home is a rare find indeed. It has those special, original details but has also been meticulously maintained and thoughtfully updated to be move-in ready.

The home boasts generous-sized rooms, 10 to 12-foot ceilings and large windows that flood its interior with light. In 1875 a large eat-in kitchen, spacious pantry and laundry room, dining room and den were added to the back of the home.

“When you enter, you are stepping back into time with all of the elegance and details available in 1860,” added Feilen.

There are two foyers, but through the main one you’ll find a major living room on one side that leads to a large first-floor bedroom and a large front parlor on the other. On the second floor, there are three bedrooms and one full bathroom, plus the entrance into a walk-up cupola. 

“The walk-up cupola, prominently positioned above the home’s roofline, serves as both a source of light inside, but also, when lit, as a landmark for traveling ships and it is positioned high enough for family members to look out and see their own family’s ships out in Orient Harbor and beyond,” Feilen told us.

The property is set on .55-acres with a c.1863, 24-foot barn, and an outbuilding.

Located on highly desirable Village Lane in Orient Village homeowners will be surrounded by an idyllic historic, close-knit sea-side community that is very picturesque.

“Orient village was settled in the 1600s and has a rich history of farming, fishing, seafaring and commerce of all kinds, homesteading, and was also home to many artists who enjoy the sense of big skies, the surrounding waterfront, and golden light,” Feilen said. “Orient is a longstanding haven for generations of families who reside here part-time to enjoy their weekends and summer vacations, as well those who have visited for the first time and fall in love with the seaside community.” 

It is listed at $1,796,000.
