Love the stonework! This home was built in 1830. It is located on seven acres in Elverson, Pennsylvania. This home was built for Jacob Hause, a blacksmith and merchant. His general store still stands on the property. I love the two sunrooms! There are hardwood floors, original mantels and great attic space. The property has several outbuildings, including the old general store. Four bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 5,457 square feet. $319,000

From the Zillow listing:


This quintessential Pennsylvania farmhouse, built in 1830, still retains much of its original Post-Revolutionary War-era detailing and charm but requires capital for its transformation into a distinguished historic home! The handsome stone house and its attendant outbuildings sit on 7 acres and date back to the early 19th Century, when former blacksmith and merchant, Jacob Hause opened a general store, which still stands on the property. Spanning the front of the house, a restored wooden porch is an inviting place to relax. Inside the home are notable period details: a decorative columned fireplace in the entry/parlor room; a Greek Revival-style fireplace, traditional side-wall molding, and wide-plank floors in the dining room; and a large, brick fireplace, which could be the centerpiece of a very cozy, colonial-style living room. Up the half-turn staircase are 4 bedrooms and a full bath. Hardwood floors and traditional molding continue throughout the 2nd floor. A lovely, two-story sunroom was added to the southern side of the house, as was a screened side porch and a small back addition. So much to fall in love with here — could this be your historic home renovation adventure?
