The historical John Towne House is on the market, listed for $299,999, and located at 225 Maple St.

The house sits on a site that appears on the map of Framingham from 1699.

Towne was the nephew of Sarah Clayes (a persecuted Salem "witch"). Towne was one of Framingham's original Selectmen, when the town was incorporated in 1700.

In the early 18th century, the home was purchased by Jonathan Maynard and operated as a tavern.

The Cultural Resources Inventory cites several architectural features that are possibly original, and this home is elegantly sited on a lovely, large land parcel near every major convenience, said Realtor Charlene Frary.
 
A history steward with vision and resources will be rewarded with a wonderful and important treasure here, added Frary.

The 2,688 square foot home has four bedrooms and four fireplaces. There is a total of 9 rooms and 1.5 baths. There is a walk-up attic and a spacious screened in porch.

Sitting on a .65-acre lot, it is connected to town water and sewer.

The 2013 property taxes were $7,398.

The Realtor is Frary with Realty Executives Boston West in Framingham.

I think it means 0.65 acre lot, not 65 acre!

Thanks. I did leave out the period.
