Rich in history, the A.L. Aldrich house is now available for new ownership. This turn of the century property, tucked away in Cataumet over-looking Red Brook Harbor, has loads of potential to be a polished gem. The over 7,000s.f. Colonial ran as the Aldrich Hotel until around 1905 and is sited next to the railroad in which passengers would stop to rest after traveling from afar. The Alden family, who invented the fax machine, then purchased the estate and it has remained in the family for the next five generations as their summer home; lovingly known as ''The Big House'' or ''Knot-an-Inn''. The 1.84-acre parcel has rolling grounds to Red Brook Pond, an in-ground pool with pool house. The main level includes two kitchens, large living room/dining hall, and 4 common rooms. two front rooms facing the harbor that spill out onto the porch and expansive back deck. Additional rooms on the second and third level hold true to days gone by. Possibilities abound to convert these rooms into generous suites. Truly a property to be appreciated.
