Grafton House Rental Photos and Description
House, 4 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)
Located in the heart of historic Grafton Village, the Parsonage is a handsome circa 1800 antique colonial, professionally re-designed to capture the essence of a period home while providing comfortable modern amenities. Featuring completely renovated and redecorated living spaces, kitchen and powder room on the first floor, and 4 spacious bedrooms with 2 baths on the second floor, the Parsonage easily emphasizes its heritage as both a classic New England village home and an historic sanctuary from the cares of ordinary life.
The family kitchen with cherry cabinetry and soapstone countertops encompasses a large family dining area and opens onto the adjacent fireplaced sitting room. The formal living room and classic décor throughout share the ambience of the renowned Old Tavern next door!
The Parsonage was built circa 1800, about the same time that the Old Tavern opened as the prosperous center of the town. The Tavern hosted such prominent guests as Daniel Webster, Oliver Wendell Holmes, Ulysses S. Grant, and Rudyard Kipling, testimony to the notoriety of Grafton in the nineteenth century.
More than two hundred years after it was built, the Parsonage is once again a private residence, and having undergone a complete renovation, takes its place among the pristine collection of restored homes that comprise Grafton’s historic and often-photographed Main Street.
