From the Zillow listing:


Welcome to Orr Manor. A Victorian era home, influenced in Gothic Revival and Italiante architecture. Built in approximately 1865 by Judge Orr, the home would change hands a few times eventually setting abandoned until being rescued by the current owners. One should not be fooled by faded paint on the outside as this does not in fact reflect the true condition of this treasured home. While there has been some alteration to the interior to suit personal function and taste, great diligence has been taken not to diminish the original character, charm, elegance, prestige. Updated windows, to view rural small town America surrounding the property. Updated wiring, adorned with chandeliers, simply awaiting faceplates. Finished walls, merely awaiting a personal touch. Possibilities abound, finish it for an immaculate dream home. Use the four bedrooms and grounds as an income producing B&B and wedding venue. A perfect match for those having always wanted to own a business, or looking for a special project.The property itself consist of more than an acre and a half and lies fairly level. There is a small two story barn as well as a small servant house/dairy, three porches, large screened patio, open deck and large attached open shelter. From the main entrance to the home guest are greeted by the grand staircase and chandelier. To the right a grand living room to the left a grand dining off the sunning room. Again to the right of the staircase another grand sitting room and from there a breakfast parlor. Up the stairs are four very large bedrooms three featuring fireplaces, one with a master bath. An favorite bonus and a sure draw, ascend into the prominent cupola and enjoy supreme privacy while surveying the surrounding landscape. A special home with a draw like no other indeed.All information provided as a courtesy w/ some taken from tax records and is subject to E&O, info should be verified by buyer or buyers agent.
