The old Dartmouth Fire Station that was converted into a house is now for sale. The charming gem is located in historic Russells Mills Village and listed for sale at $479,000. A piece of iconic Dartmouth history, the building was originally a horse barn but moved to the present site and converted into a fire station in 1923. The Great Room features high, beamed ceilings and reclaimed antique Southern Yellow Pine floors throughout this unique home. The décor stays true to the original charm.

The large dining area is perfect for when we’re able to gather again. This is the kind of table you want in your home to host a dinner party for all of your loved ones. The cozy living room is ideal for those quiet winter nights spent cuddled up on the couch watching your favorite Hallmark Christmas movies. There isn’t a fireplace, but you could always buy one from Amazon. A full bath and mudroom complete the lower level.

The recently remodeled kitchen has soapstone counters, stainless steel appliances, and a wood-burning stove. The library alcove adds to the quaint cottage feel. I’ve always wanted a reading nook. I feel like I would actually make a better effort to read more if I had a designated space to do it. This is adorable.

There are two bedrooms, a sitting area, and a full bath on the second floor. The stone wall lines the rear yard and is manageable with a shed, outdoor shower, and room for a garden.

According to the listing by William J. Milbury of Milbury and Company, this old Firehouse is located “but a few miles from the harborside village of Padanaram, the beaches, conservation trails and in the shadow of Davolls Country Store and Wild Honey Cafe. An extraordinary summer get-away or cozy full-time home.”
