    I’m not really sure of the layout of this one. There are additional photos on the agents site but they were so small I didn’t include them here but it’s linked up top if you want to check them out.

    The two front doors has me asking questions. Possibly a double house or set up as a physician’s house with separate entrance to his office? I love the older cabinets kept in the kitchen…..or should I say kitchens!? The house is very charming and the setting is a dream!

      I think it was made into a 2 family at some point early on. It was always a farmhouse, but the 2 sons mentioned co-owned the farm and lived adjacent to each other here with their families.

        – Because the pairing like that up front is SO unusual: for the East coast; or anywhere really; that I know of on this sort of house. How cool though. Of course if it is a modification Have fun reproducing an appropriately scaled and trimmed front doorway of you own imagination and good taste. This house deserves it! What if it’s original though?! How cool would that be! It’s shocking to the eye because it is so unusual and unexpected. I like real uniqueness.

        What an interesting and unusual form: and in such splendid condition throughout. The smaller scale ell to the right must be the original kitchen and service areas. Looks like a porch got closed in there; probably when the super fab addition was added to the other end of the house, likely in the early twenties. WOW. What a GREAT bonus space to compliment an otherwise VERY spacious house, (we are only seeing a sliver of 🙁 ). Surely most of the depicted millwork and current kitchen built-in, (and likely MUCH MORE we are not seeing!), was installed at the same time. All of the windows seem to be contemporary with their era, and in FINE condition.

        Niiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiice. 🙂 Really nice. J. likey VERY much.

        The fitted kitchen unit is PRICELESS… No touchy…

        Hardly a thing to do here, besides move in and give thanks to the God of all for your quantum luck owning this a m a z i n g property.

        The barn….. Omg priceless. Perfect. One may want “more” in a barn; but how could you not just give thanks for your good fortune. The chimney is the handsome cherry. Love to see the stove/s (likely) in there. Would love to buy a couple of great stoves to put in there as well: and a few for the house, of course. The higher eff., contemporary units they have in there now are smart.

        Oh more; more pix please agent. LD pretttay x6, pretttay please.. 🙂

    This was the farm of A. J. Steere (1843-1920), the youngest child of 12 in his family, and a 6th generation resident of Providence County. His biography in a 1908 publication tells of his home and family:
    Andrew Jackson Steere, the youngest son of Anthony, who now occupies the homestead farm of his father, was born in the old house that stood on the site of his present residence. His education was acquired in the district school and at Lapham Institute. Mr. Steere has always resided on the farm on which he was born, and he has made great improvements on this property, which is one of the most productive in this section, and he has also engaged extensively in dealing in hard and soft lumber. Mr. Steere has turned the management of his farm over to his sons, Sayles and Enoch, who, like their father, are progressive and energetic. They are extensive fruit growers and also deal largely in poultry, and no better examples of scientific, up-to-date agriculturists can be found in the State. Andrew J. Steere is a Democrat in politics.
    Mr. Steere was married in 1873 to Ellen Phillips, and she died in 1882, leaving the 2 sons.

      Thanks’ Jim. Maybe he made the changes himself in the teens. Pity the lighting from that period doesn’t seem to have survived. Lucky Mr. Steere to have lived a full life rooted in this magical place.

    I’d love to have a look inside this one. The agent’s site shows the other kitchen and some general ideas about what the rooms really look like, but they are very blurry. You can kind of get the gist though.
