The historic Frank Cartwright house was featured on Curbed in the beginning of May when it went on the market with listing agents William “JR” Kuneth and Leslie Hillel of Halstead Property. The listing price was set at $4.95 million.

The home was listed on May 3 and after less than a month on the market, the home went into contract on May 31.

There are three legal dwellings on the acre-and-a-half property, with a total of eight bedrooms and eight-and-a-half bathrooms. There is 5,050-square-feet of living space between the three spaces.

Though the Queen Anne style home has been updated since it was built in 1885, there are still many of the original features in the home, such as the staircase, pine floors, and the wood-burning fireplace.

Frank Cartwright was a mason and is buried in the South End Cemetery. The home maintains its rich history while still having modern finishes, keeping the home up-to-date.

There are two guest cottages on the property. One used to be an icehouse, but now boasts vaulted ceilings, a kitchen, two bedrooms, and two bathrooms. It also has its own brick patio.

The other guest house, built in 1908, sits at 1.5 stories with two bedrooms and two bathrooms. The kitchen in the second guest cottage was recently updated.
