Captain Pollard's Flintlock Farm

Stand-out historic New England colonial farm estate in a stand-out town!

This property is zoned Agricultural / Residential so it is ideal for a residence, working farm, ranch, educational agri-tourism business or all of these!

Captain Pollard's Flintlock Farm is located in the Town of Harvard, Massachusetts 01451, in the hamlet of Still River 01467. Harvard is known for the first settlement of the Shakers and today the town boasts one of the best school systems in the state.

The property consists of a rare Georgian "Double house" which is both a well preserved and a fully updated 18th century Colonial home circa 1782. It represents both an important historic landscape which has been kept essentially unchanged for over two centuries, including a massive Sycamore tree believed to be the third oldest in the Commonwealth, and for its fine Georgian architectural style. The grounds include a landscape of mature trees, a pond, graceful garden areas and cleared pasture-lands along with a double English Banked Barn circa 1830, suitable for large animals or for adaptive reuse for hobbyists of all kinds.
