An 1830s Farmhouse in Orient Will Charm the Socks off You

1830s farmhouse

With many original details (woodwork! hardware!), this 1830s farmhouse is supremely lovable and winsome. Of course, it does have some drawbacks as well. As with many old homes, it’s right on the main road, Route 25. That’s probably the biggie. The long, narrow galley kitchen isn’t what most people want today, and the house is not huge at 1626 square feet, and the lot, at 0.46 of an acre, isn’t huge either.

But not everyone wants huge. Besides the main house, which offers three bedrooms and two baths, along with copious sitting areas, there’s a two-story barn with two half baths which could be used as an art studio or workshop. There are three fireplaces: one gas and two woodburning. Outside, there’s a deck and a 20 x 40 pool.

Asking price for the property, represented by Janet Markarian at Daniel Gale / Sotheby’s, is $1.175 million. Does that sound about right to you? Let us know what you think in the comments.
