Thank you Gita.  Yes, I hope it sells soon - going up and down all those stairs are killing me.  I've shown it 2 times and everyone always wants to see everything.

Thanks Chuck.  It is a beautiful old home.  Never thought of it as storybook until you mentioned it.  But your right you can get a lot of home for less now days.

An amazing masterpiece of American architecture!  I would love to see this in person. It would take millions to even come close to reproducing.

Hi Trey.   I haven't found another home like it.  And your right to reproduce it would cost millions.  The inside is beautiful - and probably has a lot of stories if those walls could talk.  Its amazing to me the beauty of older homes and how much they mean to us today.

Elizabeth,

 

My husband and I looked at this house last year at this time when it was up for sale.  We were seriously considerating it but then it sold.  I loved it but it needed a lot of work has anyone did anything to it since then? Love the inside and out.

 

Thanks Valerie
