Property Description

The elegant Lyman House, a gracious Federal colonial renovated and expanded in 1897 by noted Fitchburg architect Henry M. Francis, is framed by years-old noble trees and beautifully sited on a knoll on the outskirts of Ashby's charming town common. This magnificent mansion, with a great entrance hall, stately verandas, coffered ceilings, dentil moldings, transom windows, built-in cabinetry, pantry and large light-filled spaces, is reminiscent of a bygone era whose niceties will bring comfort to your spirit and peace to your soul. Among its sparkling features is a banquet-sized magazine-cover country kitchen with a generous granite island, Imperial gas stove, fir counters, farmer's sink, radiant-heated cement floor, and a multi-windowed dining area overlooking the verdant grounds below. The former grand ballroom has transitioned into a versatile modern space for music, TV, or entertaining a crowd. The home's newer features include a powerful Viesmann boiler & a 5-bedroom septic system.
