Multi-room residence, was once a Bed and Breakfast; now is your chance to own a piece of Franklin history. 7 bedrooms most with their own fireplace, a primary kitchen and a butler's kitchen for added elegance. A spacious sitting room where guests once congregated and a Master Suite. Restoring this property would bring back a piece of Franklin's heritage.

    That is a big house. Looks like a lot of nice potential in the right, capable hands.

    Communal living, anyone? Big enough for a minor cult of some sort – retired old house nuts maybe. Needs some cosmetic attention but it’s basically intact, and the updates aren’t horrendous. I can see a dozen chairs on that porch at least!

    I am constantly seeing an artist’s retreat center in these monumental houses!! I have dreamed of creating one for years! So much light and space to just be and create music, art, books and joy!!! Oh to find a like minded soul to embark on such an adventure!

    Went to see this house this past weekend. Unfortunately the prior owner spent spent a ton of money ruining the historic value of the house and made it worthless. The slate roof is in sad shape. It will take someone a small fortune to make it valuable once again
