Welcome to the Eldredge House, a colonial treasure older than the U.S. itself

Massachusetts’ Eldredge House is a unique piece of real estate history. Having been constructed in 1760, the 263-year-old home is older than the U.S. itself. Now the colonial home has hit the housing market with a sales price of $499,999. The home is being represented by The Peter Izzi Team and HomeSmart Professionals Real Estate.

The home, which is located in the town of Attleboro, features three bedrooms and two bathrooms across its 1,932 square feet of space. The property sites on just under 0.6 acres of land.

“Upon entering, you will be greeted by a warm and inviting atmosphere,” according to the home’s listing. “The interior boasts many original features, such as exposed beams, wide-plank hardwood floors, and intricate woodwork. The spacious living room offers the perfect setting for gatherings, while the cozy fireplace creates a relaxing ambiance during colder months. The updated kitchen will meet all your entertaining needs, seamlessly integrating modern appliances into this historic home, creating a harmonious blend of functionality and style.”

Outside, the property features fenced-in yards surrounded by wildlife.

“This stately residence seamlessly blends the elegance of yesteryear with modern conveniences, offering a truly unique living experience,” according to the home’s listing. “The timeless exterior features a classic colonial design adorned with period details. The sprawling yard, enveloped by mature trees and fully fenced, provides a serene oasis for relaxation and outdoor entertainment.”
