Property Description

"The Homestead" built in 1772 on the West Shore of the "Great Pond" (Bantam Lake) was the first home built on Bantam Lake. This is a rare opportunity to own "history". The house has been owned and loved by the current residents for over 68 years (Oh the stories they can tell). The town records state that it was effectively rebuilt in 1994. The central chimney in the living room has an eight foot fireplace hearth with a beehive oven. The doors, the windows, the original beams, fireplaces and paneling are still in evidence. The house sits on almost one acre with 125 feet of direct waterfront on the West Shore of Bantam Lake. The views are magnificent. An added bonus is a one bedroom cabin at the water's edge with kitchenette and a bathroom as well as a free-standing stone pier, both which would not be allowed to be built today. The property is being offered with a 3.44 acre lot at 263 Bantam Lake Road directly across the street. The lot is level and manicured with a large parking area for all your family and friends.
