    I’m not doubting the 1799 build date but it had a later addition or remodel, pre-1850 perhaps.

      There’s certainly a Greek Revival flavor that would indicate a later date. Details like the position and type of windows and the width of the frieze boards indicate a build date at least three decades later than what’s listed or a significant remodel occurring around that time.

      Me too, Lisa, but I tend to go for the wounded ones. I am just drawn to the simplicity of this place and it doesn’t seem to be falling apart. It appears that someone has attempted to care for it a bit, not to restore but perhaps to keep it from crumbling and to make it more livable. The little blue wallpaper is mostly intact and there are signs of insulation and recovery going on. The exterior is a nice classic, imagine paint and a clean up, an entry rebuild, a fence with some landscaping, and it could stop traffic down Bobtown Road! The area is certainly remote, but well-known for its unique-ness. The Bay and the Ocean on three-sides — what could be better?

    I am too old for a Restoration but this is something I would love to tackle.

    This property sends me off to fantasy land. And I’d keep that sweet blue bathroom suite!
