From the Zillow listing:


Red Hill is an imposing Federal home, c. 1825, elegantly sited upon a hilltop surrounded with beautiful pastoral & mountain views. The double-pile central hallway is graced by an open-well stair, inspired by Owen Biddle’s Young Carpenter’s Assistant. Many of the other home’s features, which remain at the home and are in excellent condition were influenced by this book. First and second-floor doorways are framed by symmetrical molded architraves w/ turned corner blocks. Many of the six-paneled doors remain. Red Hill is a restoration project waiting for its new owner to bring it back to its glory!
