A Beautiful 18th Century Home

I left last Thursday morning to meet my friend Lynne Oppenheimer. Together we set out on a New England buying trip. We were excited and couldn’t wait to get going. The weather was dreary, pills it rained all the way up, prostate but that didn’t spoil our excitement, ask or the anticipation of finding some   wonderful items for our customers.

We passed so many wonderful early homes along the way.

This beautiful 18th century home was for sale, AND it was vacant! Oh, boy, gotta see inside!! We pulled over to get a closer look.

When we pulled into the driveway we noticed a stone marker under a tree.  At first we thought it was a tombstone, but when we got a closer look we thought it might be a street marker.

What a wonderful house, but oh, it needed tender loving care, someone that could would love it, and appreciate it for what it was.  When we peaked inside we were so disappointed, most of it’s original charm was gone.

I loved the Dutch door, and look at that gorgeous bullseye glass!!

It was time to go. We were on a mission!

I have lots more to show and tell, so be sure to come back. Now I need to photograph some of my treasures to get them ready to put on my website.

    oh such a beautiful house. It truly needs someone to give it some love and care…
    Will be following along on your New England trip- even if it is just virtually. This is a beautiful time of year for it.

    WHAT A GREAT HOUSE!!! Hopefully someone like the Wirths (check out their fabulous renovation in the current issue of EAL) will rescue it. Thank You for the picture, Carole.

    I’m a little behind…..like three years….in reading my EAL! The Wirths renovation is in the April 2009 issue! Glad I did grab the wrong copy. This is one of my favorite renovations of all time and I had forgotten about it.
