    For many years the home and prosperous farm of Jesse Nixon (1825-1904) and his wife Mariah. They lived here with 2 servants; four of their children died as infants.

    A lovely house in a pleasant rural spot that needs at least cosmetic attention throughout. Could be a car-stopper with some color and attention.

    The exterior could be stunning with the appropriate paint colors and that barn is way cool. It would have been nice to see the barn interior and the 2nd floor of the house.

    Such a charming home. The interior just needs a little refurbishing.

    What a stunning exterior! I love the lost old fireplace in the yard… no doubt the space of the original outdoor kitchen or servants quarters. Very cool.

    Awwww! Poor summer kitchen. 🙁 I’d rebuild it right away. Seems like a very calm and peaceful spot. Just the kind of place I’d love to have. I’m sure some folks would be itching to give it a technicolor dreamcoat as we often see; but I like it white just as is. Maybe it would would be pretty with a very light, muted color palate to make the detail pop; but some day glow scheme would ruin it’s quiet presence amidst the trees. Nice. Very nice.

    Love this-so peaceful looking. I like the white and probably wouldn’t change much. Trailer would have to go. I am very taken with this home. Wish it was even farther from neighbor. One of my favorites.

    This one of my favorite of the old Farmhouses located along this stretch of road in my native county. The curve in the road is pretty sharp right in front of the house, and I almost crashed my motorcycle into the metal post in the front yard once. Many of the large homes along this road have been revived nicely lately.
