A circa-1900 Northport Colonial that once was surrounded by apple trees was recently listed for $400,000 and is now under contract, its listing agent said.
“It’s a bright house — anyone who has ever lived there has enjoyed it,” says Pamela Kelly, whose grandfather ran the orchard. Her grandmother was a seamstress at the nearby Northport VA Medical Center, she adds.
The two-bedroom, 1 ½-bath home, which recently went into contract, has a covered rocker front porch, living and dining rooms, a country-style eat-in kitchen and a mudroom with an adjacent half-bath. The home’s two bedrooms and a full bath are upstairs. Vintage windows, moldings and woodworking are found throughout.
A shed on the parcel was previously a chicken coop, the brooder house of which was finished as a basement, Kelly says.
Ricki Gutlerner of Coach Realtors was the listing agent.
