    Some very appealing details in this house, although I’m guessing that the kitchen will make for a challenging sale. Nevertheless, if the average sale price is as high as the realtor indicates, it seems that a more functional kitchen could easily be added, making for a significant return on one’s investment…

      I really like this home & actually like the kitchen! For 1775 a really modern kitchen just wouldn’t fit in for me. I see that alot with the kitchens & bathrooms in these old homes & I’m like awww man! I would however add a laundry room. Not much else I’d change!

    My favorite part is the blue chairs that have been sat in for so long that you can see the outline of the people in the fabric
