Sneaking out of the house at night is not something we suggest or condone. Nevertheless, there have been reported sightings over the years of children doing just that in order to dig around this yard silently, with kitchen spoons. You see, there's a rumor that the original owner and builder of this home, Captain Alexander Bacon, buried treasure somewhere on the .60 acres of this village estate. Must be no creaks in the stair case or the natural finish wide pine floors to give away the nocturnal explorers in this four bedroom three bath village antique. Built in the Revival style, with moldings and charm from a bygone era, this offering is a treasure all on its own. Then there is the car barn... I remember it as a kid. Meticulous it was in the ordered display of tools and the subtle scent of 'engine' in the air. Today it offers endless possibilities for hobbies, passions or just keeping a few cars and boats out of the weather. The house, a village landmark, the car barn and the extensive private yard together create a living experience that will be a treasure for its new owner. You can stop digging around and arrange to visit this property today. Please verify all information.
