DURHAM — A historic property featuring two antique homes in the heart of town is on the market for $399,000. 

The main house, named the Timothy Hall House, was built in 1704 and sits on the oldest industrial site in Durham, where local farms would bring their grain to be milled. 

Situated at 153 Main St., it is within walking distance to the Durham Fairgrounds, Strong Middle School, the public library, post office and town hall. 

The property also features a 1,600 square-foot carriage house with two bedrooms. 

Listing agent Debbie Huscher said the carriage house is currently used for rentals, and could be a source of income for the new owners, or otherwise used as an office or place for a visiting family to stay. 

The two-story main house is 2,551 square feet with four bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms. It features wide-plank floors, five “heartwarming” fireplaces, and a flowing, functional layout, according to its listing.

“There’s been several additions… that really make it a livable space for those family needs today,” Huscher said, referring to renovations to the family room and kitchen. 

She said the home still has its antique feel, but is livable for a modern family. 

For more information, contact Huscher at 860-918-4580.
