House Lust: A Sweet 1910 Dutch Colonial in Barrington

It has a wrap-around porch, a sunroom and lovely historical fixtures.

If there was ever a case to be made for judging a book by its cover, this is it.

This Dutch Colonial in Barrington, in the heart of New Meadow peninsula, is pretty as can be on the outside — a picture of careful preservation over its 110-year lifespan.

Inside, it’s just the same. From the built-in bookshelves to the stone fireplace to the paned windows that let in the light, this place has all the charm of historic homes without sacrificing the comforts of modern life (think: newer appliances and central air). It’s been on the market since January, and has dropped nearly $50,000 in asking price, so the sellers are motivated. Could you be its next steward?

Here’s your House Lust:
