Just listed: A Gothic ‘gingerbread’ house for $799,900 – Buying, Fall House Hunt – Boston.com Real Estate
For those who have had the childhood dream of living in a gingerbread house, the home at 13 Baker St. in Foxborough resembles just that, in a 19th-century antique sort of way.
Listed for $799,900, the house is also referred to as the “Carpenter Gothic Home,” according to its listing.
The home, built in 1835, is dressed in its original green, listing agent Gil Campos said in an interview with Boston.com. It underwent an extensive renovation in 2003 that added the entire left side of the home and restored the look of the original exterior, among other upgrades and renovations.
“The … decorative features are all wooden and handmade,” Campos said of the intricate details along the roofline. “They really did a lot of work to this house.”
The 3,126-square-foot house has four bedrooms, three full baths, and one half bath. It sits on ¾ of an acre, the listing shows.
The home is original minus the left-side addition, according to Campos. “I was surprised,” he said. “I lived in Foxborough; I never knew they did that addition.”
The kitchen features cherry Shaker cabinets with limestone countertops. There’s a formal living room, plus family and dining rooms and a media room with a projector. There’s also a conservatory that was imported from England, according to Campos.
Outside, there’s a heated in-ground pool, a patio, a one-car garage, and a barn.
Adding to that feeling of stepping back in time, Campos said, the neighboring homes have stood there for decades, too.
“It’s all antique homes with different styles,” he said. “They’re really interesting houses. None of them are really the same.”
