History and character combined defines the John Sewall House in Hallowell built in 1805! This home hosts 5 bedrooms and 2.5 baths with historical details throughout! Main floor hosts a beautiful entry with a kitchen, dining room, mudroom, and half bath to the left and a formal living room to the right with a fireplace. Second floor presents a beautiful primary bedroom with built-ins for storage and a full bathroom with a large, jetted tub and separate shower. Primary also leads to an additional room with access to a small peaceful balcony to enjoy your morning coffee. There are 3 additional bedrooms, in one of which, according to family lore, famous midwife Martha Ballard delivered a baby. Additional full bath with immaculate detail such as the Roman numerals carved on the beams, which are known as ''carpenters' marks'' and aided on-site assembly of the frame's hand-carved joinery. The third floor has the fifth bedroom with a fireplace and a large den space you could use for entertaining. Given the age of the home, the main beams were hewn by hand and by water-powered mill, the former which you can see in some of the rough adze work on the third floor. The flooring in the primary bedroom, third floor, and main entryway is likely original, given the irregular, hand-fitted boards. Seriously, it's all in the details! Some updates to note are the new natural gas boiler, high efficiency water heater, and newer paint, gutters, and roof in 2020. Also, the home lies equidistant between downtown Hallowell and the Vaughan Woods. 10 minutes left out your front door and you can enjoy the beautiful seasons of Vaughan Woods and 10 minutes right you can enjoy Hallowell's vibrant restaurant scene. This is one of nine historic homes in Hallowell that has a book describing its construction and history at the Hubbard Free Library (around the corner). You truly must see this home in person! It's unlike any other!
