200 Years of China history echo in the halls of this stately home. Owned by one of China's most prominent early citizens, Jephath Washburn, who gave the town it's name, this home has been in the same family for 7 generations. An authentic Maine colonial, it offers an almost untouched view into the past, boasting hardwood and wide planked pumpkin pine floors throughout. The first floor offers a formal dining room, music room, living room and study or 'parlor' with floor to ceiling windows, built in bookshelves and a fireplace. The grand staircase takes you to two stately bedrooms with another small bedroom and sewing room or nursery. 3 more bedrooms were most likely used by household staff, with their own private staircase and separate from the rest. The beautiful glassed in porch offers a place to enjoy a cold beverage on a warm summer's evening and watch the world go by in the village. The original barn offers room for 2 cars, a woodshed, some stalls for livestock, storage above, and even a 2 seat privy to add to the nostalgia, and the carriage house makes an excellent workshop or art studio.
