Built in 1818 according to the stone on the house, this old beautiful colonial now sits alone and is going through it phases of urban decay. The house is over 5600 SQ Feet with 6 bedrooms and 2.5 baths. This house has been sitting alone since 2011. The place was offered up for sheriff sale in 2013 but was shut down and never made it to the auction. The current status of this home is unknown. I hope the current owner or someone does something to get this home back up and in shape again as it is too beautiful to let it rot away. Enjoy and Video to Follow

  1. I saw your vudeo of this on YouTube and saw you had more about it here. Out of all the sites I have seen, for some reason this one has struck a cord. I want to scream at the thought of it being left to rot. Too much to lose. I have nevr seen a place with so much original input in a house this age. Except for one on historic registary. The house doesn’t even show any signs of foundation movement. WOW. Has no one looked into a grant, getting it on a historic charter or a low intrest rehab loan? Don’t know why I’m asking the questions of you. Sorry. Just frustration. It just seems like everyone is worried about putting up ugly square boxes and calling them “modern”. Will close my rant now. I really do love your video. Keep up the awesome work.

  2. I found this house to be so BEAUTIFUL…such a shame. If this was in my town, my husband and I would buy it in a heartbeat. It’s actually pretty close to my dream home (after a little TLC). I was also amazed at the condition of the kitchen and some of the wood flooring. It seems like it is in very good shape…I’m wondering what happened??Does anybody know the story behind it?

  3. Steve: I’m an architectural history buff and love these videos. You should try to create some sort of buyer-seller network. One house I was really interested in buying. I think realtors would pay you a fee if you brought a buyer and seller together.

  4. Hi Steve! I know I posted this on the Youtube video of this house, but I want to reiterate. This is the house my friend and I live around and he contacted you about exploring it. I’m so happy that you took his advice, we love to go there for projects and to take pictures. Thank you for showing it to me through your eyes :) It actually really means a lot to us and I hope we’ll be able to contact each other again!
