There’s a marvelous Massachusetts home built in 1739 for painter Ralph Earle , a 5-acre farm in the Berkshires with a home from 1740, and a fully remodeled Newport, RI, home built in 1743.

Newer additions include a greenhouse, renovated kitchen, and family room update. The 2,264 square feet of interior space features a number of built-ins and handcrafted details. The 1.2-acre lot sits in a desirable part of town close to shops, restaurants, and a train station.

Price: $500,000 This broken-down old home sits on over 40 acres and is headed to auction in November. Interested bidders should know there’s a $50,000 deposit due on auction day, and the bidding will begin at $500,000.
Accessed via a tree-lined drive running between two ponds, the gutted main house will require a buyer who knows how to revive old homes. But if it’s beyond repair, the winning bidder also has the potential to develop the old farm.
