The best way to learn about historic houses is to look at them closely, and the most fun way to look at them closely is to do a puzzle showing a wonderful historic house! So, we made a unique and interesting collection of Historic House Puzzles for you to enjoy!
Located in Buckfield, Maine, it will soon be coming on the market for the first time in 40+ years. The National Register listed 1844 Greek Revival farmhouse presents its formal sides with bold trim elements and clapboard siding to the road but transitions to much simpler trim and shingle siding on the rear elevations. The house, kitchen ell, shed, and barn are connected in the classic Northern New England big house-little house-back house- barn form.
The current owners have spent decades restoring the house which is on four acres with extensive perennial gardens. The adjoining 16-acre field will be transferred to a land trust for conservation and the house is protected by a preservation easement.
The Record Farm is one of 13 featured homes in “Restoring Your Historic House, The Comprehensive Guide for Homeowners.” Many photos of the house can be found in the book.
