It's a house that has been in Ipswich for nearly 300 years and now it could be yours. The Baker Sutton House on High Street has hit the market for $699,900.

That seems like a very reasonable price for a house with so much history and 2,422 square feet of living space, but honestly, you will have to spend a bit more in renovations to truly modernize this 1700s home.

Built in 1725, the house still has so many original features, including some of the biggest fireplaces many of us have ever seen, and there is still so much potential for new owners to put their own mark on the place.

The name Baker Sutton House doesn't quite tell the whole story. Though William Baker is presumed to be the man who built the home, the place seems to be named for Samuel Baker and Richard Sutton, two prominent members of a guild of hatters who lived on High Street in the mid-18th century.

By the end of the 19th century, the home was owned by the Lord family, who had to move the dwelling when the Eastern Railroad was built. Several houses were moved at that time to build a bridge over the train tracks.

Trains still run on those tracks, taking folks from Boston to the South Shore and vice versa. The bridge still remains as well and, of course, the house, all a testament to how much things change but still remain the same.
