    Wow. Love that it wasn’t too badly messed with.

    Another fascinating house with a few “time capsule” qualities! The stone section dates to around
    1810 or so. The frame addition dates to around 1865 (with asphalt faux-stone siding c. 1955!).
    The kitchen retains its grained wainscot and woodwork… you don’t see that every day! I LOVE
    The attic with the bark-clad rafters!

    Recalling a previous listing’s choice of words, this one is a “toolkit” house; in other words, bring your tools, labor, knowledge, and most of all enough money spend a year or two on the project and you could have something pretty nice. I think Eric is correct about an earlier phase-I’m not knowledgeable enough to pin it down to 1810, but seems plausible.

    I jjust can’t make myself like this one…..too “Vernacular” for me.

    The land here is worth most of the price, add another $100k+ and you have a nice old homestead near York. Love the exterior and grounds – not much to save inside.

    This house is down the street from me, I’ve always wanted to know what it looked like inside. Was surprised to see it did not have a bathroom! Anyways, here is some history about this home, it is the original home built in Yoe. http://yoeborough.blogspot.com/2007/06/history-of-yoe-borough.html

    Build date is 1815 I believe… The president of Yoe borough would know, those were his relatives.
