Driving Directions

An extremely rare opportunity to own Centre Farm, Lynnfield's most well known and historic property. The Reverend Joseph Mottey House dates back to 1785 and since then this rambling country farmhouse has had only 5 owners. Steeped with history: the fiddlers perch in the master bedroom overlooks what was once used as a ballroom, the dining room contains a custom mural depicting a local fox hunt that took place over 150 years ago. As legend has it, the lower level passageway could have been used as a means to hide slaves as part of the Underground Railroad. This home contains 8 fireplaces, wide pine & brick floors, 200 yr old window shutters and good ceiling height throughout. There is an abundance of more than 5,000 sq feet of living space not counting a huge rustic game room that connects to an extra large barn with stables. Included on the 7 acres are 2 building lots, one on each side of the property. Ideally, the 6th owners would occupy, preserve & protect this unique landmark.
