This historic property built in 1754 is one of the oldest homes on Union Street located two blocks from Main Street and public beach with boating access. The home features wide pine flooring, four fireplaces, and an attention getting “great room” upstairs with two large 60 pane windows that provide beautiful natural light. Much of the original interior has been retained keeping the charm of its original floor plan. Behind the home is a terraced patio/garden which is set a few steps down from street level. This private outdoor area is perfect for entertaining and relaxing. The current owners have been successful in renting the first floor as both floors have a full kitchen which allows prospective owners to use the property while receiving income as well. In 2016, 24 Union Street was selected to be part of the Christmas Stroll House Tour.
The first floor contains two bedrooms, two full bathrooms, a kitchen, and a living room. The first bedroom overlooks Union Street, has a fireplace and en-suite full bathroom. The living room also has a fireplace and looks out to the street. The kitchen/dining area has views of the patio/garden. The second bedroom with adjacent full bath has its own exterior access with steps down to the patio/garden.
The second floor landing leads to a full kitchen with an original backsplash painted by a local artist and former owner of 24 Union. The kitchen also features a fireplace and space for a dining table overlooking the street. The bedroom faces the street and leads to a full bathroom overlooking the back garden. Also, the second floor provides a large open “great room” with a vaulted ceiling. Wonderful for entertaining a large group. Water views in the winter.
The attic is partially finished and currently set up with an office and storage.
The full basement includes a laundry area and ample storage space. It is accessed from the first floor and by a door off the back patio.
There is a shed located on the back corner of the property.
