New Bedford is home to many historical houses. One of the more iconic ones can be found on County Street, known as The Joseph Arthur Beauvais House. It’s one of those properties that makes you wonder what life was like when it was first built back in the late 1800s.

According to, this landmark is currently for sale and listed at $1,100,000. With nine bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms, this magnificent 1883 Queen Anne Victorian is nearly 10,000-square-feet on over a quarter-acre lot.

Located at 404 County Street, this single-family home has been listed for nearly three weeks. Paula Tosca of Coldwell Banker Realty in Marion is the listing agent for the property. According to her, this massive house has been “meticulously and authentically restored to its original grandeur.”

“Secure a landmark piece of New Bedford history with this preservation award-winning mansion,” Tosca said. “The exterior and interior abound with stylistic detail and a variety of elaborate finishes. This stately house boasts nine unique fireplaces, a grand quartersawn oak staircase, rich moldings throughout, exaggerated Palladian windows, stained glass skylight, intricately tiled front entrance portico and vestibule, second-story balcony, and spectacular widow's walk water views.”

Let’s not forget the two-level carriage house that is big enough to fit five cars with more than 19 off-street parking spaces to host all of your friends for that summer party you’ve been meaning to have.

Another perk of the property is that this four-level home has mixed zones to accommodate residential and commercial property in downtown New Bedford.
