Historic Whaling Warehouse For Sale in New Bedford
It has the distinction of being one of the oldest buildings on Centre Street in New Bedford and it could now be your new home.
There is a lot of history in downtown New Bedford, so boasting one of the oldest buildings in town as your own is kind of a big deal. The new owner of 13 Centre Street will get to do just that, while enjoying a beautifully restored living space, too.
Listed by The Mathew J. Arruda Group of Robert Paul Properties, the over 200-year-old warehouse-turned-home at the heart of the New Bedford waterfront is on the market for $875,000.
The price may seem high to most of us, but the living space inside is pretty fantastic and the bottom two floors are office space that can be rented out to local businesses. So perhaps this place pays for itself in the long run.
Known as the William Tallman Warehouse, the building has definitely had a long run. Originally built in 1790 as a commercial building for the whaling industry, it was one of the first to be restored by the Waterfront Historic Area LeaguE (WHALE) back in 1967 and was used as their headquarters until 1995.
The restorations have continued over the last 55 years and seeing where this building started from to where it is today is truly awe-inspiring.
That's just one room of restoration in the three-and-a-half-story home. Keep scrolling to see all the work that has been done over the years.
