From the Zillow listing:


If you love history you’re going to love this one! Presenting the conjoined houses of Sheffield! Known as the ‘Peck House’ this village home dates back to the early 1800’s and is one of the town’s most well known structures! At one time it housed Giffin’s General Store and living quarters for the owner. Today the two houses remain attached together and the former store space in the corner building quietly awaits repurposing. All on a beautifully landscaped 1 acre lot. The front house features 2 bedrooms, 1.75 bathrooms, tons of versatile living space, and (drumroll please) the antique general store space on the first floor! The back house features 3 bedrooms, a bathroom and a wonderful open floor plan. Lots of amazing updates, repairs, and features have been added to this home over the last 7 years including: custom wood work, new bathrooms, new kitchens, new roof, and lets not forget the custom 10-person built-in farmhouse table with benches. Each house has it’s own garage and covered porch. So much potential here for extended family living or short term supplemental rental income. The back house was rented very successfully on Airbnb from 2014-2020. Located within 30 minutes of: Kingdom Trails, Lyndonville, Shadow Lake, Crystal Lake and so much more! Come check it out and see if you can find the secret room!
