Gustave White Sotheby’s International Realty represented the seller, the Charles H. Townsend Family Trust. The buyer was represented by an associate of Mott & Chace Sotheby’s International Realty.

The buyers were looking for a home with historical charm in an in-town location within walking distance of attractions and services, according to the broker.

The name of the new owner or owners was not immediately available because the deed has not yet been filed with the city.
