With high ceilings and sturdy baseboards, this roomy Scituate farmhouse was built in 1804. The original listing from June of this year had the home priced at $387,000, and a recent price drop sweetens the deal. While the new buyer will have sizable projects ahead, from landscaping and siding, to interior renovations, the home has hardwood floors, built-in shelving, an antique stove, and attractive moldings around windows, some of which have stained glass. According to the listing, double staircases and a potential two-bedroom guest suite are highlights of the space. A three story barn is attached, and the property is just under an acre.
