    This screams “New England”. I’m a sucker for a paneled den.

    Did anyone else drool over that built-in drafting table (or, at least I think it is)?

      Doreen, don’t think it’s a drafting table, but maybe a washer/dryer hideout to replicate “bin” storage? The construction doesn’t allow for a full operating straightedge.

        Hmmm…maybe. You’re definitely correct about it not having a straight edge, and that could be a table for folding clothing, but it sure LOOKS like a desk! The flooring seems to match the kitchen floor, so…? Oh well.

      This is funny-I thought it was a storage thingie for potatoes and onions! Now I can see that maybe its some sort of desk.

    Hmmm…I don’t see anything wrong here, that they are saying its an “as is” sale. Unless there’s electrical, roofing, or plumbing problems? Anyway, I love all the wood floors on the first floor-I wonder why there’s carpeting upstairs? I’d love to see more hardwood floors up there! Actually, this house had me at stone walls….I love stone walls!

      Definite roofing issue for sure. They have a tarp with tires on top of it in one of the photographs. Not sure if that is the enclosed porch or what. And the listing DOES say it won’t go FHA. Could also be foundation issues with something this old, or plumbing, or…

    I’m trying to wrap my head around those Escheresque stairs.

    Beautiful property. All the seasons would be spectacular in this country rural setting. This house would be wonderful if restored. So disappointing with the stairwell, I wonder how the stairs could be brought back to an original early state for it’s age.

    Some of these house would qualify for the FHA 203K, I think it is. You finance the repairs with the mortgage (unless the sale price + repairs doesn’t support the end value).

    Nice barn, which looks in good shape and untouched by a “restorer”. The house has gunstock corners so may be earlier than the 1795 date, the house has had significant upgrades not in it’s historic favor. I’m a bit of purist when it comes to early houses.

    1815 Cape

    This is an extremely unusual early 19th century house. I’d date it to about 1815 based on the fact that the the front parlors have raised paneling, but that raised paneling has neither an ovolo or “thumbnail” molding. The “good morning” staircase also has the kind of Federal period detail common around 1815.
    Uniquely, there are 2 windows above the front door, not one, indicating a very wide front hall.
    The house was originally a “T” shaped floor plan with the “good morning” staircase behind the stair where it could service both the two front bedrooms and bedroom(s) in the centered rear ell. The front section of the house was one room deep with a 2 story centered rear ell that housed the original kitchen with its large cooking fireplace.
    The downstairs front hall had access both to the two front rooms and to the back “good morning” staircase beneath a chimney arch. There are houses with similar center chimney/center hall floor plans in South Woodstock Connecticut and Pownal Maine.
    Since the fireplaces are new (and the chimney above the roof also appears to be new), I expect the connection between the front hall and back staircase hall has been closed off.
    The 2nd story additions that give the rear roof a semi-saltbox shape are almost certainly later additions since they lack the exposed and cased posting of the earlier sections of the house.
    I wish Hill NH was a little close to where I live in Alna ME so I could take a look to see if my suspicions are correct.
