Beautiful Colonial Revival
Norfolk—Reduced to $599,000

In the early 1880’s Augustus Curtiss, general store proprietor and Norfolk’s selectman, desired a wife. As was customary in the day, he ordered his wife from Germany by mail. And in 1884 he built this handsome Colonial Revival from the finest materials his store had to offer as a welcome and a wedding present to her. The 8’10” ceilings, unusually large windows with original wavy glass, fir floors, thick doors with brass hinges & knobs, chestnut stairs, and fantastic original radiators are now incorporated into the very intelligent and artistic renovation recently completed by two talented young Harvard architecture graduates.
