Shortly after Bourne was founded, lumber yard magnate Albert R. Eldredge constructed his residence at 172 Shore Road in Buzzard's Bay. Today it is offered for the first time in decades to the buyer who appreciates magnificent oak woodwork and other architectural details in this original craftsman style colonial. Rooms are spacious and infused with natural light due to expansive windows throughout. Often referred to as ''the house with two bays'', this stately residence offers early 19th century refinements like a massive oak pocket door between the foyer and living room, carved oak fireplace featuring columns and dental detail, butler's pantry, expansive attic with steps to what was once the widow's walk. A breezy wrap-around porch with cobblestone pillars and double columns is partially enclosed. Remove the walls to restore the exterior ambiance, or enjoy the additional protected space the porch provides. The second floor with elegant hallway and three bedrooms awaits you at the top of oak-paneled staircase. The bathroom was recently renovated with marble console sink and clawfoot tub. Become a part of history and make this vintage treasure your own.
