    It says on the Realtor link that this house dates back to 1700. Wowee. I can never get over houses this old in North America. LOVE them.

    Most Colonials seem to be restored to within an inch of their lives – I like the rawness of this! It has so much more character than all the freshly painted restorations. But then… my personal motto in things like this is always, “Old things should look old.”

    Some careful, light-handed restoration (especially of the fireplaces, heating & plumbing) and cleaning up the obvious would make this a very unique place to live.

    Looks like an illustration from one of J. Frederick Kelly’s books from the 1920s come to life. Back in Kelly’s day there were hundreds of these unrestored (and therefore ‘unspoiled’) Colonial gems in every corner of the state; now, this is near the last of its kind. I would look for a date closer to 1750 from the hewn overhang, the cased summer beams, and the archaic classical style of the paneling. Hope someone buys it who won’t put stainless steel and granite all over the kitchen and decorate everything with Martha Stewart panache.

    This is a beautiful old lady who fell on hard times. Poor thing has been badly treated — I wonder how long since it was lived in. Needs work but everything important to its age seems to be there — what a beauty it could be again. I so hope the right suitor comes along!

    These are my favorite kinds of houses! Refinish the floors add a little paint and right from the start, the place will look like a million bucks. all the doors, paneling, and floors are there waiting for you.

    A really good scrub, restore the fireplaces, and add some modern amenities (I’d have to have HVAC). Otherwise don’t touch it. Gorgeous.
