February 22, 2024

This house has some nice details! The house was built in 1873. It is located on .45 acre in Ware, Massachusetts. Not a fan of some of the things going on with this house. The white fence looks awkward. A wrought iron fence would be so much better. Not a fan of the blue exterior trim. The house features hardwood floors, wainscoting, tall ceilings, picture rails and built-ins. Five bedrooms, three bathrooms and 3,205 square feet. $250,000
