Stunning Victorian serves as a stately anchor in this desirable neighborhood abutting the Meadows Conservation area, just steps to downtown Northampton. Built in 1870 by Horace Lamb, a well-known wire manufacturer noted for his honesty and contribution to Northampton's growth, the house features period details like soaring ceilings, ornate fireplaces, exposed brick, antique hardware, slate roof, and a Palladian window. Thoughtful renovations were made, but important vestiges of the original home, including the staircase, were preserved. Updates include a lovely three-season porch off the kitchen with wood ceiling and floors, recessed lighting, and wrap-around windows. The main kitchen was updated...with Corian counters, stainless steel appliances, farm sink, and custom cabinetry. While the current owners live on the first floor and reserve upstairs for friends and family, the house offers flexibility as a legal two-family residence.
