The original house, built in c. 1900, is a 3 story, 4 bedroom, 2 bath simplified colonial-style farmhouse in the process of renovation by the former owner, with portions livable now as a camp or vacation getaway; and with additional renovation, ample room for larger gatherings of friends and family.
