Stroll past the Common in the picturesque village of Strafford to a stately antique Colonial which will surely draw your attention. The special features and design, reminiscent of long ago, have been sensitively preserved by a long procession of stewards of this unique property. Old window glass, handsome fireplaces, wide floorboards polished with age, and a charming staircase, are elements at the heart of this memorial to history. The 13+/- acres circle an ancient cemetery with another portion sloping toward the river, a scene dreamed of by horse enthusiasts. All together a fascinating blend of architecture, history, and landscape in a quaint rural hamlet.

    1901 Folk Victorian
    Chestatee, GA

    Build date given is 1880, this is probably a few decades earlier than that.

    I love this house. Very well done and honest. Reminds me of the 1830 I grew up in for its hook rugs, wing back chair, tall dresser, and college alum chair.

    LOVE that stairwell hooked rug…its to die for. I would have liked to have seen the 2 bathrooms included in some pics. It really is comfy and homey…

    This is a John find. He IS the master of the lookie loos.

    I’m just wild about the room with the corner fireplace. So cool.

    Great house over all. Wonderful, unique, homey chic, design aesthetic.

    Happy plants = happy house. 🙂

    Wow! With the picket fence and entrance hall full of houseplants I was already sold on this place. The rest of that beautiful interior is a fabulous bonus. Someone’s done an amazing job with this place, all it needs now is a few finishing touches of the horticultural variety outside and it’d be another piece of perfection!

    This is in my hometown. It’s located right outside the town green which is lined with Federal and later homes. The well known Strafford Town House is located on a knoll over looking the green and a stream flows behind it. The National Historic Landmark Justin Smith Morrill homestead is nearby. The homestead is a wonderful pink Gothic revival. Morrill was raised in the house which is for sale.
