From the Zillow listing:


Tall Oaks was built in 1847 and is a 2 story vernacular Greek Revival residence (the history of this home is attached to this listing). As you drive through the wrought iron gate, you will be enthralled by the beauty of the property; the home being at the end of the drive. You will walk to the 1st of 3 huge porches that overlook the grounds. Then you enter into a huge foyer that at one time served as the LR or parlor. Massive LR on one side and equally massive BR on the other. Note that all rooms are huge. Upstairs is another BR and huge bath plus a great room with 2 fireplaces (it runs the whole width of the home) which opens to the 2nd porch. This home is a great example of the fine craftsmanship of the mid 1800’s and has not been significantly altered. Even the original kitchen is still behind the main house and is in great condition. Needs your love and care!!!!
