  • Built by local craftsmen at a time when homes were built to last centuries, not just decades
  • Much of the original siding, flooring, wainscoting, bead board ceilings and more still remain
  • Designated as a Treasured Tree Preserve for the abundance of centuries old trees that grace the property
  • Close to shopping, restaurants, schools and parks, yet nestled in pastoral splendor
  • Unlike today's sterile, modern homes, an old home has a warm and comforting character all its own. They have a story to tell if you only listen. Built around 1914, this Queen Road farmhouse has seen a lot of love and witnessed many stories. The antique brass on the front door has been rubbed to a soft glow from over a century of people passing over its threshold. The original pine floors remain in most of the house, the wainscoting, the shingle and board & baton siding and much of the lumber used to build this home was milled by local craftsmen from timber harvested right here on the surrounding land. The bead board ceilings have been restored by current owners from years of wallpaper. The farm sink has listened in on many conversations where many childhood problems have been solved. The window glass still retains the ripple of hand-blown glass and the memory of nose smudges from little kids peering out into the world.  

    The land is level and contains many old growth trees, many that predate the house. The property has been designated as a “Treasured Tree Preserve” due to the stately Cedar, Oak and Walnut trees that grace the property. Visiting wildlife will raid your gardens and nest down in your woods.

    Once considered very rural, 45 Queen Road has become quite the oasis in a suburban setting. Close to schools, shopping, restaurants and parks, you are never far from today’s needs.

    An updated vintage home that still retains its original charm is hard to find. The electric was updated in the 1990’s, the heating system in 2018, city water service has been installed and the septic was rebuilt in 2010. The important stuff has been taken care of. The rest is waiting for you to decide and add your imprint to the history of this home!
