BLACKSTONE – Take a walk back into the past as you explore the East Blackstone Grange, once a part of the Mill Village Center and now a converted home.

This four-level colonial offers five bedrooms and two full baths with lots of space and character.

“It has pink granite on the outside and it’s just breathtaking to look at,” Lila Delman listing agent Rachel Jones said. “Inside there is exposed limestone that adds a ton of character.”

The exterior of the house was built with pink granite and is surrounded by flowers and gardens. Being near the Mill River and a part of the Mill Village Center, it was constructed in 1800 as The Stone Store. In 1912 it was purchased by the East Blackstone Grange which used it for a dining room and meeting space. It has since been converted into a house and is eligible for listing on the National Register.

This property was part of the Walking Tour of Blackstone.

“When I have open houses, people who live in Blackstone come to see the inside,” Jones said. “They tell how they had dances held here or they saw the Easter Bunny. It was a community spot. They held family-style dinners on the first floor.”

This property is one-of-a-kind. There is plenty of parking and lots of garden space. Once inside, it’s a whole new experience. The first level is very open. Jones commented on the openness of the first floor as being one of the many unique aspects of the house. The current owners have redone the electric as well as refinished the birch hardwood floors and added granite countertops in the kitchen.

Though the first floor is open, each space is defined. The sitting area is near one entrance and further in there is the dining room area. On the opposite side is the kitchen with its white cabinetry. There is also a new subway tile backsplash as well.

There are exposed beams throughout the main level. The kitchen also includes a breakfast bar. By the kitchen are stairs that go down to the partially finished basement with laundry area. On the main level there is a living room with double doors that could potentially have a wood stove.

Heading up the hardwood stairs to the second floor, there are cathedral ceilings. Jones commented how the current owners have utilized the different spaces throughout the house by displaying antiques and nice benches to sit and read on different landings.

“Every single level has its own walkout except the fourth floor,” Jones said.

There are five bedrooms with two residing on the third floorm which also includes two full bathrooms. On the second level there is a walkout off of one of the bedrooms that looks over a gazebo/garden area outside. On the top floor there are exposed wooden beams on the ceiling as well as space for a billiard or rec room.

This property could fit any number of people. Jones said that she has gotten interest from large families or blended families. She has also heard of an idea of using some of the house for a bed and breakfast or making the first floor a studio apartment or using the main floor for a business office and putting the kitchen on another level.

This colonial offers 4,120 square feet of living space.

The property is listed at $369,900. For more information or to schedule a viewing, contact Rachel Jones at 401-663-6162.
