40 Lincoln Street, Exeter, NH 03833

It's not often a gracious in-town property comes on the market; especially one steeped in the history of what helped shape the Exeter people know and love. 40 Lincoln St. is one such property. The Col. Rufus Elwell House offers not only the conveniences of living close to schools, shops, restaurants, & the train, but also offers its owners gracious living inside & out. The newer kitchen with granite counters & custom cabinets reflects the period of the house and opens to the screened porch and the dining rm. From the dining rm step into the living rm w/ woodburning fireplace, the study with pocket doors, or pass through the foyer to the family rm with the 2nd fireplace. The remainder of the 1st floor houses front & back staircases, a powder rm, laundry rm, and generous mudrm which leads to a 2-car attached garage with private back entrance. The 2nd floor has 4-5 bedrms, two bathrms, and a staircase to 2 rms on 3rd flr. Newer roof and heating system. Truly a house to call home.
