I had a hard time picking the featured image!! The views, the circa 1840 house with original details throughout, that screened in porch overlooking the river, the tin ceilings, the claw foot tub, all of that wood, THE VIEWS!!! Lol. And then the price, $169,000! Built in 1840 in Lisbon, New Hampshire. Four bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 2,239 square feet. $169,000

From the Zillow listing:


Calling all antique lovers! Situated looking straight down the Ammonoosuc River, it’s a feast for the eyes. Come take a look at this Circa 1840 Vintage charmer replete with many original details such as handsome natural woodwork, tin ceilings, an old fashioned screened porch for lounging whilst taking in those gorgeous river views, and a vintage doorbell that still works among other great features. The “big ticket” items have already been taken care of for you including a recent standing seam metal roof, seamless gutters, chimney, furnace, sump pump, hot water heater, appliances, fresh exterior paint, and the list goes on. This is in-town home is within walking distance to shopping, dining, and the Post Office yet its location evokes a tranquil country setting. Two barns, one large, one small offer plenty of storage. Add town water and town sewer and this is a property that offers a lot of bang for the buck. This property won’t last long. Come see it soon.
