    Looks like it might have an attractive staircase. Someone please save this house before the dangling fretwork falls down!

    Words do not equal pictures. Showing a plaster or particle board shed does not tell any one about the house. That being said, the view from the front is beautiful, and I am glad what we can see it here.

    Please do not convert this beautiful place into a 2-family house. Bed and breakfast would be OK with me, but I surely would love to see it restored as a family home. I would do it myself if I were younger and richer!!

    Shenzhen & SoCal,

    Yes, please save the wood detail.

    Seems like there have been additions and modifications over the years. I’d be concerned about the roof interfaces on the backside. Fraught with potential water intrusion problems.

    What toad-of-a-contractor allowed the electric/telephone/cable company to run the lines to the front elevation by the front entrance? It’s a distraction to say the least, and the lines probably had to be run to another remote location within the structure to the panelboxes/connections. May be expensive to relocate, but if anyone is serious about restoration, that has to occur.

    Needs some TLC for sure, hopefully nothing too substantial. It’s been a fine family home for 150 years – no reason to change the use now. The exterior looks fairly original, though the mantel and fretwork are later. Lovely period staircase.

    Built for John Phillips Hart (1816-1870), a New Jersey born farmer and Mason who had a very successful operation here. On 250 acres, he developed a Durham Shorthorn dairy herd that produced 25,000 gallons of milk in 1870, along with other crops and produce. John and his wife Eliza Boynton had 7 children.

    Lovely house, from what we can see of it. It does look to need some work but so much is intact on the place. Comes on a fair sized piece of property, a real bunus in my book.

    Would love to see some more pictures!

    Lovely house. Needs a bit of love and it will be beautiful. Wonderful views. I hope it’s saved.

    I just love this house-from what I can see of it. If it weren’t for the NY property taxes….there are just so many beautiful homes in this state.

    My home town!!!!! Love it, but it does need work in a fairly low income area……
