Wish me luck!
We have put in a contract on a house built in 1814! Well, actually the main portion of the house was built in 1814 and was originally a tavern. The home was enlarged sometime in the early 1900's. I'm so excited, and a little nervous.....I am sure at some point in time I will wonder just what I've gotten myself into..lol!
Here's a few pictures
This first one shows the summer kitchen (my favorite part of the house!)
And this is the front. I just noticed that the spacing between the windows is uneven... the 3 windows the left are the original log structure/tavern, and the 2 windows on the right are the "addition"...I wanted to put shutters on, but the assymetry will probably drive me nuts. (ideas anyone?)
And this last picture shows a portion of the backyard, looking down towards house. The property is 2+ (parklike!) acres, and it's very difficult to get a shot showing it all.
If our offer goes through, I'm sure I'll be spending a LOT of time here on this forum, and I look forward to getting everyone's help and expertise!
