the john weston house, circa 1729
204 surplus street | duxbury, massachusetts | $1,050,000
Sited on a remarkable 2.24 acres of pastoral land offering pond views, the John Weston House is the quintessential Duxbury antique: lovingly preserved and thoughtfully updated. Originally constructed in 1729, this home features exposed beams, wide pine floors, carefully crafted built-ins, and original fireplaces. The combination kitchen and family room, extensively renovated under the current owner, offers a seamless open layout, joining together the past and the present with cathedral ceilings, a skylight, an AGA range, and a brick fireplace with bake oven. The first-floor office and adjacent full bathroom can be configured to create a first-floor master suite, and upstairs, two bedrooms share a full bath with a claw foot tub. A large brick sunroom leads to the landscaped grounds and vegetable garden, gently sloping toward the pond beyond the property line. With land for potential expansion, an incomparable Village location, and a proud heritage, this home is a rare offering.
