    The historic photos add context which is good, but it appears the house has had deferred maintenance issues for many years. I hope someone with even a modest budget will take on the property and bring her back. Lots of nice things to admire.

    My kind of house! Tons of potential and I would be hard pressed to not add the wrap porch back. Wish there were more pics of the interior.

    I like the potential with this boldly styles Greek Revival. The build date in the description may have had some numbers reversed. I’d buy 1850. The historic pics showing the scrollwork Victorianization indicates those pics to be taken sometime shortly after the turn of the 20th century. By the time the 4th pic from the top was taken, Victorian ornamentation had faded from popular style, and someone removed all of the trim except for the small piece over the entrance to the ell, and the original design was much more inline with the Colonial Revival trends popular during the mid-20th century. Interesting how popular opinions regarding architectural styles come and go over time. Now it’s just classic and worth restoring.

    Interesting! I think I’d go with the original Greek Revival with the small entry portico, and maybe add a columned porch on the wing. I’m not seeing 1805 unless it was a substantial rebuild.

    Love the hand-tinted look of the old photo, probably a Photoshop job but nice.

    Love the old photos, great reference tools for a restorer. Sandisfield MA is right over the CT border and the tax rate is amazingly low in comparison to the houses just over the state line in CT. Lots of old houses in the area going for reasonable prices. I considered a few before deciding to become a South Carolinian.
