Oliver Tarbell and his wife Sandy erected this stunning brick Federal farmhouse in Cavendish around 1830 for their ever-growing family. The couple had thirteen children who survived infancy, so even this large home was likely stuffed to the gills and hectic! Oliver appears to have built the home, incorporating his ancestral home onto the rear of this brick house, as a rear ell. The house recently sold in 2022, so of course I had to gawk at the amazing interior photos…
What a beautiful home and at that price. Clearly needs work but hopefully someone bought it that wanted a period property to restore. The grounds just look like old New England unspoilt and unurbanised. A bonus being able to see the interiors.

I thought the same. Hopefully someone will buy this beauty and really have the interior shine, with restored woodwork. The old growth wood is probably in great shape still!
