WINDHAM – As a faithful reproduction of the historic, c. 1715 Parson Barnard house in North Andover, Mass., this handsome and spacious saltbox is intrinsically interesting. But the home’s appeal extends far beyond its architectural lineage.

Here there is plenty of house for a family – 3,116 square feet, eight rooms including four bedrooms, and a surprising but very welcome amount of closet space. Even so, there is room to expand. The full basement has excellent ceiling height, and a full bath, and could become a great family/multipurpose room. The walkup attic, which has a pair of windows and is accessed by a fine staircase, also invites finishing.

Not that extra space is needed. In traditional fashion, there are two front parlors/living rooms: one slightly more formal, with its wood-burning brick fireplace; the other more casual, with full-view doors out to the side yard, and a walk-in closet. Both have chair rails, as does the big dining room, which is presided over by a Queen Atlantic wood stove that has baking and warming ovens, and provides enough heat that only 400 gallons of oil were used last year.

A wide doorway opens into the kitchen, which has high-grade pine cabinetry and black appliances including a Jenn-Air oven. Completing the first floor are a full bath with laundry, a large office with built-in shelving, and a mudroom with a walk-in closet.

Upstairs, the two front bedrooms are large (15 feet by 17 feet). There’s a full bath between them. The two skylit “back” bedrooms are only slightly smaller, at 15 feet by 11 feet.

The 2.98-acre lot is very private, as in ringed by woods, and features a brick patio and brick walkways, and even a 20-foot-by-40-foot inground pool. There is plenty of room to add a garage.

The home at 75 Woodland Road, Windham, is listed for sale at $315,000 by Susan Durst of Portland’s Choice Realty. Annual taxes are $5,312.
