Built in 1806, this white brick home in Harvard is a time-honored gem. The antique abode is situated on just under an acre of land, boasting manicured grounds and a centuries-old carriage house. Though the property faces the town common, it offers plenty of privacy as it’s set back on a wide, grassy front yard.

Inside the home, period craftsmanship abounds, from its crown moldings and exposed beams to its six fireplaces and high ceilings. There are three sets of staircases in the house, including one that curves to the upper levels. In addition to four bedrooms, the house has a second-floor laundry room that abuts what listing agent Rhonda Spragu calls a “secret” room. (She suggests it could be converted into a teen’s bedroom.) The building is topped off with a third-story cupola, offering views of Harvard’s charming town center.
