From the Zillow listing:


WOW!!! Calling all history buffs or those looking for the PERFECT weekend getaway, or homesteaders!! This 1830’s home has been kept as close to original as possible right down to the door knobs and original wood floors that are in AMAZING shape! You will walk inside and say WOW at least 20 times! All 3 fireplaces work, and there is electric baseboard heaters as backup! Electrical and plumbing has been updated and a fresh coat of paint on the outside and in. There is a front and back staircase, attic for storage, they have added closets to bedrooms, even the bathroom has been kept as original as possible with this awesome tub! Once your done being in awe of the inside of this home you walk outside and become even more impressed! There is a pump house, and a stone shed with an addition (that with a little work would make the perfect chicken house or animal barn). There is a soothing stream that runs down the side of this home with babbling brook that will make you long to read a book and/or take a nap, yet shallow enough for the kids/dogs to have a blast and have stone steps right into the stream! The owners have made it their goal to ad just the right amount of sun and shade that you’ll never want to leave! There are 3 lots included in this sale making it just over an acre. Completely unrestricted and would make a perfect homestead. There is a nice fenced garden already started and currently being cared for by Middleway’s garden club, they can continue to care for it if you prefer this as a vacation spot or you can take over if you want to live there full time. Plenty of room to ad extra parking or even a garage or small barn. The same owners have enjoyed this as their weekend getaway for the last 50 years and loved every second of ownership and now they are excited to pass the torch to someone else who will love it as much as they do! If you long for the small town feel in Jefferson County you really want to check this out! This home is not going to last long! But please be aware it is in the flood plain.
