In 19th century New Bedford, the well-to-do lived in comfortable homes uphill from the harbor's hustle and bustle. This house was built in a well-kept neighborhood of wood frame homes in 1855, when the city was at the height of its whaling industry wealth.
The house is all angles and wings with gabled roofs, porches and trim. Inside is a light-filled solarium, a skylight kitchen, parquet floors and pocket doors. There's an attached guest house, as well as a lush private garden with a brick patio, flower beds and shade trees.
It's in excellent shape, according to real estate agent Collette Lester, and priced at a fraction of what the house would cost to reproduce today.
