This majestic Colonial, built in 1830, was the home of Captain Dauphine King, a seafaring man. The original 8-room house has grown to include 14 rooms and 3 baths, which includes a spacious 3-room first floor apartment with a separate entrance located at the rear of the house. Separating the main house from this apartment is a large “mud room” with a fireplace and opens to a lovely screen porch. This proudly maintained home features a large kitchen with many cabinets, original wide pine floors, detailed woodwork, 8 fireplaces and the amazing quality, charm and individuality of this period home. At the rear of the detached 2-car garage is an excellent workshop and storage area.


This 8-room, 1.5-bath Saltbox is on the Norton town seal. It was built in 1710 for Norton’s first minister, Joseph Avery and is known as the “Old Parsonage.” This home displays original pine paneling with interesting detail and built-ins. Some of the original pine floorboards are 23 inches in width. One of its 5 fireplaces is located in the large summer room, overlooking the private backyard. There is much to appreciate in this unspoiled and loved 2/3 bedroom antique.
