943 High Street, Dedham
Price: $1,200,000
Size: 6,003 square feet
Bedrooms: 7
Baths: 5

Built in 1736, this humungous antique Colonial was once home to the original Dedham Polo Club. Its polo fields and 1894 squash court—thought to be the oldest squash court in America—aren’t included with the property, but the land’s historic beauty remains.

The house stretches to 6,003 square feet, a generous size for a home just outside the city. It has 10 rooms, 11 fireplaces, four bathrooms, six bedrooms, a few staircases, original floors, and a two-car garage. The place is a steal, too. It’s almost unheard of to see homes like this on the market for $200 per square foot. Sure, it could use some work (the house is almost three centuries old, after all) but those aging bones are worth the effort.
