The 1684 John Burnham House is a beautiful New England Saltbox, directly on the shore of Chebacco Lake. This cherished and renowned First Period home has been carefully preserved and restored.It is listed on The National Register of Historic Places. Once part of a 300-acre farm, this storied home has exuberantly evolved and expanded over the years.Today there are 16 rooms, with 9 working fireplaces, including a west wing ell, a stunning Georgian library addition and an attached, well-appointed 6 room cottage with separate entry. A luminous sunroom opens to the lake view patio and decks adjacent to inspired gardens that have formal elements as well as a more relaxed 'tumble of wildflowers and perennials'. Stone walls, winding grassy paths, trellised rose gardens, raised beds, mature apple trees, ancient cranberry bogs, and a babbling brook grace the 9-acre parcel. Outbuildings include a substantial barn, a writer's cottage, and a guest retreat. Bed and Breakfast potential!
