    I’m confused by the exterior, although the street view helped a little. The interior pictures are too focused on individual close-ups of doors, bannisters, etc, but you can still tell that it has a lot of potential to be a really great home once again.

    Some really fun, folksy, Federal details. I doubt the builder was a master, but he certainly was creative.

    What a fabulous house, but they really need a new/better photo of the front/exterior. The history behind this place must be incredible – someone with serious money built this place way back when – you can tell by the beautiful front door, stair bannister, and wood paneling throughout. There needs to be kitchen photos, too, even if they show a kitchen that needs to be totally renovated. This is a real gem in my mind, and I hope the right buyer comes along to restore this gem.

    Lots of potential but I’m thinking you have to have deep pockets, there’s a lot of house in this house. Love the old barn. I would want to buy an extra five acres around the five acres so any new subdivision and the property has lots of space between it.

    Such a thoroughly confusing and eclectic old home. It’s truly a great example of “a rambling old house”. I think so far the best image that does its original front facade justice is the streetview from April 2012; https://goo.gl/maps/RoC3PxEmeUD2
    It’d certainly make for an interesting project. Particularly when deciding how best to go about presenting the property in a vaguely cohesive state. Or maybe you could make a stroll through the house like a stroll through time and have each room appear as it would have done in its own era.
    The cottage and barn are a very nice bonus too.

    Wouldn’t you love to see what a professional Stager would do with this house??? Maybe it really would HELP this house be sold, if they staged it, with lots of antiques, etc. What do you think? They would surely earn their money, on this one!

    If you want is an old New England house on 5 acres, there are hundreds of them for sale in much better condition at a much lower price… even with good locations. I guess Middlebury considers itself more special?! And they want nearly 800,000 for the other 30 acres? Wow.

    Looks like two houes were put together. Love it!
