This side hall manor house built in 1830 by Scottish Stone Masons has survived virtually unchanged inside and out for almost two hundred years!
FRESH FACT: Known as Kirby house, built by Andrew Todd KIRBY.
I actually viewed this house a few years ago at an open house (a very busy one) and without hesitation this is the most hauntingly beautiful home I have seen. The ceilings soar, the rooms dwarf and the character seduces. Truly a time capsule property. Some vision required but a worthy trade-off considering everything is historically intact.

6 panel door common in the years preceding 1850 and seen again in the
1920s during the colonial revival period. The stiles and rails of the door form a pattern suggestive of a cross, the two lower stiles and rails form a pattern vaguely suggestive of an open book, representing the bible.
