From the Zillow listing:


Known locally as the gingerbread house for its distinctive trim, this former cabinet-maker’s house rests on a 66 acre farm. Built in Rural Carpenter Gothic, high style in the mid 1800s, this historic home is believed to have been a stagecoach stop in the 19th century. The home is a gem inside with a cozy fireplace, lots of wood flooring and a kitchen as nice as you’d expect from a previous owner who installed them professionally. Note that it will need some upkeep now, and think twice before exploring the outbuildings, most of which have been disused for several years.
