Here's how much it's listed for

Here’s how much it’s listed for

A Massachusetts home that predates the American Revolution and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places is up for sale in Natick.The 284-year-old home at 1 Frost St. is on the market for $1.25 million. The 3,253-square-feet antique home has four bedrooms and three full baths.According to the home’s 1978 nomination to the National Register of Historic Places, the house located on the corner of Frost and Winter Streets in Natick was constructed in 1738 by a prominent family. It is currently listed as sitting on 1.72-acres but the original property was a 200-acre tract purchased from the Natick Indians in the late 17th century. A historic marker on the home notes the purchase of the land was protested “by the English missionary John Eliot, who founded Natick as a Christian Indian settlement in 1651.”The home was built by Robert Jenison, who was a leading housewright in the region at the time he built his own home. Documents indicate he served for many years as a town selectman and captain of the militia company. He was descended from other prominent figures in the region, including his father Peter and grandfather, who was also named Robert. Jenison’s son and grandson followed in his footsteps as housewrights and his granddaughter, Sybilla, married Issac Fiske who became a prominent Methodist minister and namesake of the present Fiske Church on Walnut Street in Natick. Grandson Issac Jenison graduated from Wesleyan College and became one of the founders of the Methodist Church in America. According to the listing, the home features restored original wide pine floors, exposed beams, hand-carved paneling and other period details. The kitchen has been updated, the home has high-velocity air conditioning and there’s a tankless water heater. The master bedroom features a walk-in closet, en suite bath and office. There’s also a two-car garage, storage shed and an accessory building fitted with a sign marking it as the place where Vice President Henry Wilson learned to make shoes.
