Victorian Home, Built Around 1900, Features Stained Glass, Grand Stairway, Other Features
A Victorian home at 140 Hartford Ave. East, Uxbridge, built around 1900 for the Whitin family, offers amenities rarely seen today, such as stained-glass windows, a wrap-around porch, a foyer with a grand stairway, window seats and lots of natural woodwork.
But its Victorian charm is complemented by modern amenities, such as an auxiliary heating system and an updated kitchen featuring a five-burner AGA Legacy gas stove and other new appliances, plenty of counter space and cabinets, plus an island.
The home, which has been listed by Kathy Craig of ERA Key for $814,900, makes full use of its 1.5 acre lot and 4,275 square-feet of living area. It features five bedrooms, three-and-a-half bathrooms, a private office, a third-floor game room, and a basement with a large exercise area, a utility room and a laundry room.
The home, which has hardwood floors throughout, includes a spacious dining room with a built-in cabinet and a canvas-covered ceiling, a living room with a fireplace, and a family room that’s ideally suited for entertaining. If the ample closet and storage space in the home is insufficient, there are also four garages, two of which are used for storage.
The nearby village of Whitinsville was named for the Whitin family, which built a thriving textile business in that area. The Whitins also built worker housing adjacent to its mill complex.
