    What a lovely property! Those autumn pictures are really gorgeous as I sit here in annoyingly hot, sunny SoCal.

    Thanks’ to dwr7292 for posting this great little cape in last week’s share!

    This is how I love to see these early American houses = plenty worn and authentic. The ones that have been “restored” to within an inch of their lives – to me – are generally less interesting. I love the old and the new here and would myself change very little.

    Super comfy! Rad spot too. Nice!

      I agree partially. Many of these early homes have little or no insulation, wiring is substandard(downright dangerous) and plumbing, not much better. So you do have to do some wall tearing and while you’re doing that, you say, “I might as well fix it up right when I put it back together”. Maintaining a 150 year old look isn’t always practical.

        Fortunately for this great old house and most others, the concerns you mention can be addressed without ripping out walls and losing the “150 year old look” – as a number of OHDers can attest, myself included… : )

    Beautiful property! Good photos here make a difference. We have purchased an 18th c home about 800 miles from us based on pix listed on this site. I would strongly suggest all realtors take the time to walk through a house and take pictures of each room, including things like fireplaces, cabinets, etc. This home looks like it has tremendous charm, history and potential. I would love to see a more deliberate photographic inventory of this home.
