It isn't too often that you get a chance to own a piece of history. However, for those buyers looking to buy a home in Canton, the opportunity is here right now. The home at 33 Pleasant Street is listed for sale at a price of $699,900.00.
Those who regularly drive up and down Pleasant Street will recognize the landmark brick house at 33 Pleasant Street. It located just a couple of doors down from Pequitside Farm and not far from the Canton Recreation Department.
Most recently this was the home of one of Canton's favorite historians, the late Ed Lynch, and his family. This house is full of history. According to public record, the house was built in 1904. It is considered to be a "Draper House," meaning that it was one of the homes that was owned by one of the Drapers, owners of the Draper Mills (still in business today as Draper Knitting). The large period colonial homes located near this house are also considered to be Draper houses.
This stately house has approximately 3,700 square feet of living area with 11 rooms, five bedrooms, three-and-a-half bathrooms and two fireplaces. This home offers finished living area on the third floor, previously used as an artist studio, that would make a wonderful office or perhaps a teen hideaway. There are many period details that have been retained throughout the years, however it has also seen updates in areas like the kitchen. It is a grand old house with a lot of room to spread out. Located on 1.6 acres of land, the home is situated in a lovely setting, with plenty of outside space, which is easily accessed from the window-filled first floor family room.
If you take a look at the video tour, you will see that there is a real feeling of both history and family found inside this house. It is a true Canton landmark and is waiting to welcome a new family to continue its story.
