    The out-of-doors have this place sold! Every walk would be an adventure. Add to it a sweet little place with a killer kitchen sink, great hardwood floors, a massive fireplace, and the cutest flowery wallpaper ever.

    I don’t even know where to start! That acerage, the barn, tin roof, shutters, giant fireplace…WOW. It’s even got a neat basement. What are our thoughts on the woods-fireplace? Would that have been formerly surrounded by house, or has it always been a stand-alone?

    Gosh ! I’d love to own this ! Did you see the little shower/tub? What an adorable house! I wish they could have got more exterior pics from different angles. Can only imagine the wildlife. Just lovely.

    In the right hands, this place could be spectacular. That barn would make an amazing house. Great property.

    1875 Limestone house
    Langeais, Loire Valley,

    This is the kind of shower pan that is common in Europe (or at least in France). Although the latest ones are almost flat because the trend is to “italian showers”, flush with the floor. Our is in-between, it has edges but not as high as the one on the pic.

      Thanks Melissa. This is a tough one without access to local deeds. The Sullivan name doesn’t show in older records, so they must have come later. An early resident in the neighborhood was Jacob C. Benson (1800-1883), who married at age 50 to teenager Elvira Olivia Hackett, and they went on to have 8 children by the time he was 70. I can’t prove he owned the place but maybe he did.

      The falls and rock formations along the stream here were known as the Mill Brook Cascades on the old maps. It was developed as a tourist camp called Glacial Park between the Wars. The old chimney from one of the cabins and the walkways shown were part of it. It would be fun to own this old place and go on long walks with the dogs.
