300+ Acres

I'm up to my normal snooping again. I love prodding around fantastic old properties. As I was driving to go look at a house to purchase, I saw a sign that said "300+ Acres for Sale" and looked down the sand lane.
I pulled a U-turn and immediately found myself driving down the lane to see what was at the other end. This beauty waited.
After doing some research I found out that this farm house was built in 1875 and has been unoccupied for several years. At least since 1989-1990 based on the evidence that was openly waiting for me inside.
This home was gorgeous. I was honestly in love. The wallpaper, the layout, the views, the serenity. Calling my name. The $4,250,000.00 price tag was not. I'm glad that I was able to poke around this lovely home. I felt some sort of connection to it. My friend, John, said that it's probably haunted and whoever used to live there may still have connections to it. Understandable since I was charmed by this home so easily.
(A pale pink 'fridge! So lovely!)
 
The contents of this home were all still so intact that it was almost eerie. I can't understand why someone would just leave this home vacant for 21 years. The remnants inside were lovely and lonely.

(These glazed-brick silos stood about 50 meters from the farm house.)
Such a pretty historic home. I'd adore being able to say my home was built in 1875, wouldn't you? Maybe I'm weird but I think age is charming. Needless to say - I was too mesmorized by this home to be even slightly interested in the home I had originaly went to look at that was in my price range. Maybe next time. A girl can dream, right?

    Hey, you think like I do. You should have seen the house in SH when we bought it. I love old homes and the history and workmanship in them. Good luck on your hunt. You'll find something wonderful. There are so many around here.

    You amaze me!!! This would scare the living daylights out of me, even in the daytime. ;-) But I love that you love it…
