An eighteenth-century property that’s part of Historic New England’s Preservation Easement Program is for sale in Pembroke, Massachusetts.
Recompense Magoun House, an authentic c. 1739 gambrel Cape Cod house, sits on 3.6 acres of meadow and woodland. The property preserves several aspects of a unique local history. The former East Pembroke Post Office, with its brass post office boxes, and a barn that once served as the East Pembroke Fire Station, are both on site. Outbuildings include a second antique barn, a workshop, a three-season porch, and two other heated structures.
The house retains exceptional original finishes including eighteenth-century paneling, mantels, boxed gunstock posts, wide pine floors, early hardware and plaster, and built-in cupboards. Attractive for homesteading, artisan farming, or an artist’s retreat, the property stands among historic homes in the picturesque Goose Lane/Hatchville neighborhood of East Pembroke, close to Route 3 and beaches.
Historic New England’s Preservation Easement Program, a national model for protecting privately owned property, preserves significant historic features of the Magoun property, the house, and its outbuildings. Among the property’s protected features are original paneling and plaster, floors, and fireplaces as well as framing and structural elements.
