    In the same family for seven generations! First time on the market! This has to be breaking hearts! Every photo looks ready for publication in a historical home magazine!

      I know-7 generations! I wonder what is prompting the sale? If I were in this family, I’d go all Scarlett O’Hara to keep this house! Even marry that mealy mouthed old Frank Kennedy!

    In love with everything about the house, till i saw the kitchen, it needs some major loving.

    This house likely didn’t have a kitchen when originally built. The cooking was probably done in another building so the current kitchen was added in another era. It is an amazing home, beautifully maintained. I hope whoever purchases it continues to love it.

      I was kind of wondering about that small building. It doesn’t look the right size to be a garage. I wondered if it was the original kitchen, at least in the summer.

    What a beautiful, gracefull Old Gal, and from what I can see, not a TV in the whole house!

      Oh, they’re there, lurking in some dark corner like unwanted vermin. AT LEAST no one hung a 76 incher above one of those lovely, delicate, ORIGINAL mantles. Do you get the feeling I could LOVE and PROTECT this magnificent home like a precious BRIDE near and dear to my HEART? I sure do. Adorable home; I could move right in and never touch a SINGLE THING! Well, I might spiff up the kitchen, just a bit. Thank you SO MUCH for sharing this treasure with your readers.

    This is just beautiful in every way. Perhaps Margaret Mitchell got the idea to have Scarlett use the green velvet draperies at Tara to make a ensemble from the green velvet draperies in this home.?

    Beautiful house with a surely interesting architectural history. It’s primarily Greek Revival with the characteristic corner pilasters, wide frieze boards, and front entrance. The Victorian era front porch is a interesting contrast that really defines the look of the house. Two interesting items are the lack of first floor symmetry as shown by the offset front entrance and missing second window bay on the first floor and what appears to be an unusually beautiful Federal style mantle in the parlor. I’m guessing maybe the house had a number of expansions and the initial construction could have been a single story that could even predate the 1822 listed build date prior to a Greek Revival remodel and expansion.

    This place has a delightfully consistent air within and without – an understated touch of elegance.

    This home needs to be bought by someone who will respect it and treat it with tthe love it deserves, the only thing I’d change is my accent
