More About This House

As owners we try to keep with the original design of the house. The pockets doors were taken out of the walls and restored to working order. The curved ceiling in the hallway up to and including the second floor we papered in period print paper to accentuate the curves. The wood floors in each restored room are original whether wide plank or milled. The plaster mouldings in the hallway and formal parlor were sanded and reshaped to their original lines. We are currently updating the kitchen which last saw improvements in the 1950's. It'll still be of that era but new and improved.
This house may be occupied as strictly residential or residential occupancy with light business/professional use.
Taxes under $5000.

History

This house was originally part of a brickyard business and was only four rooms. It was bought and enlarged and beautified by Charles Dare who was a business man. It now has twelve rooms. Later occupants included Robert Stretch a one time mayor of Salem and more recently, Forman Acton a former Professor Emeritus at Princeton and participant in the Manhattan Project who left his fortune to fund city college scholarships.
Market Street and other areas in the historic district of Salem are experiencing a renewed interest in purchasing and preserving our wonderful old homes. This town is also seeing a growth of small businesses and on a larger scale - on the waterfront.
