Love the exterior look of this house and the white picket fence is perfect. This home was built in 1840. It is located on one acre in Deep River, Connecticut. The interior definitely needs some work. There are hardwood floors and stained glass windows. The home has a large wrap around porch and a post and beam barn. Five bedrooms, three bathrooms, and 2,711 square feet. $300,000

From the Zillow listing:


This graceful home from another era is waiting for a restoration to it’s warm Georgian Pavilion style splendor. Built in 1840, it has seen several additions some w/a Victorian flair. Huge wrap around porch w/turned posts & spindles and stained glass windows whisper charm. Situated just off Main St. on a 1 acre parcel of land that gently slopes to the back stone-walled border this lot features a mature landscape, garden area, maybe room for a small gentleman’s farm? A 2-story post and beam barn adds many possibilities – workshop, artist studio, farm tools & the white picket fence completes the feel. Inside has seen a few updates over the years, and yet many rooms are untouched. The kitchen is modern and includes a back staircase to the 2nd floor. Huge dining room w/fplc, 1st flr laundry area & half bath too. Spacious family room has floor to ceiling original windows, built-in bookcase, stained glass topped French door to side porch and double folding doors to gracious front entrance. Formal living room w/fplc with mirrored mantel and unique tile. 2nd floor features stained glass pavilion area at the stair landing, a full bath, 4 BR’s including the master suite w/sitting rm & private bath. The wide pine floors in these rooms have amazing boards seen only in houses from these early days. Walk-up attic, full basement, public sewer & water. Yes, the house needs updating, love and appreciation, but it will certainly be one of the most beautiful homes in village center.
