    This is brand new to the market so the listing description may come later. I don’t know the story or a build date. I’m going to assume this is the real thing and not a reproduction, perhaps it was moved here from New England, we’ll find out. 🙂

      I am familiar with the area…..you may be correct. It will be fun to find out!

      You are correct – the syndicated sites haven’t picked up the feed yet with all details and descriptions. I can tell you that this home was originally built in Massachusetts, then rescued and moved to the lot that it sits on currently in the early 1970s…so it actually sits on top of a concrete block foundation (usable basement) rather than on barn stone or other materials that would have been appropriate at that time. It was lovingly reassembled, I am so told, board by board.
      I am the agent representing this property and can tell you that I have never seen ANY property like it. It is unbelievable. I am just hoping that someone buys this home to LOVE it rather than someone wanting to develop the acreage – a developer or builder.

      I am so in LOVE with this property. I now know why- I love homes from MA and to learn it was moved there from MA and re-assembled board by board makes me love it even more. The understated and rustic look is incredible. I wish I was ready to move now because this is what I want!

    It would be interesting to know. If it’s a reproduction, they did an exceedingly good job, with old flooring, etc. Even made the kitchen look like it has always been there, amusing.

    Let’s just write our own description, starting with “Jaw-dropping!” I want to fill it with crocks and baskets and giant rag-rugs. Love the black exterior and all interior colors, and the placement in this scenic setting is divine. Whether new or moved, it is a dream. I do wonder about the exterior siding, noting how at the foundation of the home the lapping is very tight but more traditionally lapped as it moves up. Why would this be? Something like that suggests to me it’s an original Georgian, but I can’t explain why. Why would one alter the lapping on a new build?

      Sharon, I don’t know why they did it like that either, but the older the house is in the NE area, the more likely you are to see the courses of Claps put up the same as this house. I’ve seen old time carpenters who still do it on newer homes, but not quite as tightly. Our house has the same type spacing of courses and the bottom, thickest edge of the claps, are also feathered. I think that probably the closer the courses at the bottom are, the better the protection the foundation (sills) might have from water damage and air leaks???? Kudos to the owners that restored the clapboards so authentically. Oh, and notice the wide floors don’t appear to be varnished since they probably would have been left without any finish back when the house was built. They would have used fine sand swept around to clean them.

    I just talked to the listing agent – it was brought in board by board from Massachusetts in the 70’s exactly as it was. The barn is a studio – beautiful property just what I want but will probably be sold this week!

      When they move a house that way, do they do the same thing with the masonry, and the plaster and lathe walls? Or do they rebuild that stuff from scratch?

    OH MY GOSH!!! The first picture there looks like this is straight out of Yorkshire and Wuthering Heights! Just unreal! And the house inside! When I was a teen in the 70s, I used to get the magazine Early American Life. This house looks straight out of it! I remember how it used to upset me when I would see things in the pictures from modern times; they jarred so much with the rest of the decor, and it just set my teeth on edge! (precomputer and bigscreen days, of course!) They have done a superb job in this home, to make it true to time looking. It is beautifully done! And that barn? My aunt had a huge farm in Maryland in the 60s and 70s, and their farmhouse was built I think in the 1700s. This barn, really reminds me of her barn. This place is really very special!

    Graduated clapboards only appear on the public facades of early NE houses, so it is a style thing. There is no contemporary explanation of it. Best bad guess is that it was done to make the house look taller.
    The fireplace bricks are the only discordant note. Richard Irons solution is diluted walnut stain to make the colors of the bricks match. Other solutions used in the 18th century is to paint the brick either black or old red. Facing bricks were often stuccoed, then painted.
