This four-bedroom, two-bath Victorian farmhouse in Orient dates back to 1873 and was originally a neighborhood blacksmith’s home, says its listing agent. Its asking price is $975,000.

“The house came from Navy Street . . . was originally owned by John Cleveland, Orient’s blacksmith and a Civil War veteran,” says listing agent Lori Feilen of Town & Country Real Estate.

The 2,200-square-foot house, which has water views of Orient Harbor from a side porch, is a short distance from the Orient Yacht Club, bay beaches and transportation, she adds.

An L-shaped living-dining room has a fireplace and opens into an eat-in kitchen. A first-floor master bedroom suite is behind the kitchen.

Upstairs, three bedrooms share a full bath. In addition to a main staircase, the second floor can be reached through a back staircase from the kitchen.

A screened-in porch with a full roof has views of tree-lined quarter-acre property, which includes a 1.5-story antique barn with two bays. There is also room to add a pool, Feilen says.
