This historical charmer is tucked away on 2.25 private and peaceful acres. The original section of this home was built in 1965. Johnathan Bounds bought this historic home in 1732 which bears his name. This home features over 3, 000 sq. ft. of living space and 5 fireplaces and 3 of these have the original raised custom wood panels surrounding them. The home also features wood flooring throughout, and a basement. The master suite on the first floor has a fireplace and attached attic den/loft. There's a newer roof and HVAC added within the past 7 years. The Shiloh Schoolhouse circa 1903 is also on the property. This could be renovated and made into a perfect guest house, studio or office. The Bounds Lott historic home was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1978. It was featured in various national magazines like Colonial Homes, July-August 1985. This gracious historical home is in immaculate condition and is ready for you to move in.

    1860 Carolina farm house
    CAMDEN, SC

    What a national treasure!

  3. Of all that is impressive about this beautiful house, the way its axis is aligned to flood the house with daylight is outstanding.

    It would be interesting to see photos of the schoolhouse from Shilo.

      It’s so much brighter than a lot of the other houses of this age. I’m not usually a fan of this era as the ceilings are low and they feel gloomy, but I can never pass up a yellow house and this one breaks the stereotype on the inside. Loved the lily quilt upstairs too.

    My favorite era…..I’m totally enthralled by anything 18th century. This property is beautiful in its scale, condition and location. Not far from Princess Anne and Salisbury, both with lovely historic houses. The paneling is unusual….the restoration is superb…LOVE this house….!!!

    1875 Limestone house
    Langeais, Loire Valley,

    very interesting panelling in almost every room of this house, beautiful. I wonder when they date back to, if they’re original or if the house was more rustic at first and then gentrified.

    This is just a colonial beauty on Maryland’s Eastern Shore and the price? Wowzers! If only it backed up to the Wicomico river!

    1782 Quaker Georgian
    Worton, MD

    Agreed, this is a stunning and rare example of an 18th century frame house on the Lower Eastern Shore (of Chesapeake Maryland). Historic homes here often have a 1600’s date, and that almost-always refers to the original land grant. According to the historic survey, the main part of the house was built c.1715, and it was enlarged and remodeled c.1740. Brick houses tend to survive the centuries better than frame houses (think fires, entropy, and hurricanes). Apparently this one literally stood the test of time because an end wall is brick, handsomely decorated in a checkerboard of glazed brick at that!

    We’re looking at a marvelous house that’s been thoughtfully-restored to 1740. Check out the 1972 photos in the historic survey to see how it was almost DOA before restoration! It was built for a Quaker family of respectable status. This is why the house is fairly austere and has revealed beaded ceiling beams (the edges were routered). The handsome diamond panels, arched cupboards, stair hall, and classical details were added c.1740 when the house was upscaled a bit. There’s a c.1740 frame house in Chestertown, MD with similar details interestingly enough.
