From the Zillow listing:


History, Glamor & Grace, if only we could see the photos of activities that happened in this elegant 1837 home. The woodwork, detail and features throughout this 6 bedroom home are stunning. It is perfect for a large family or even a bed & breakfast. The kitchen, pantry, laundry, dining, living, sun room/parlor & Master Suite are on all the main level. 5 bedrooms and 2 baths along with a sitting room on the 2nd level provide plenty of room for guests. Smoke House building with a cellar. A 3000 square foot Carriage House, lookout on upper level for incoming carriages, also has so much history and could be finished for many different purposes. The grounds have a park like setting and are absolutely gorgeous. Plan plenty of time for a showing as it takes time to see over 7800 sq ft. The sellers will consider selling all the furnishings too. Located in quaint Rural Retreat, Police Dept of one, which is a walk back in time but minutes from I-81 & I-77. Close to the Depot.
