From the Zillow listing:


Home being sold “as-is”. This once glorious Victorian home could be restored for a single family home or a B & B! This house has so much potential for the right person. Five fireplaces throughout the home. In it’s day this house had beautiful crown molding and woodwork. A spiral staircase leads up to a third floor cupola. This home needs a lot of work but could be absolutely breathtaking. Beautiful setting, 1.25 acres. The last photo was given to the owner from the Historical Society, it was taken when the original owner had the home.
