My blogger friend and fellow house fanatic Sue over at Housekaboodle alerted me to this amazing property on the market in Cornish, Maine. (“It looks like your sort of thing“)

Heck yeah! Sue knows me well – I am a major sucker for antique Cape Cod houses!

This one reminds me a lot of the Old Brown Cape that I featured last Christmas – which is still for sale if you are interested.

But this particular spread is known as the Noah Weeks farmstead. It comes with an old barn and outbuildings on 10 acres of land.

The house has an attached Janco greenhouse which makes me want to throw on a gardening apron and put my hands in some dirt:

The property also includes an organic veggie garden, but we’re more interested in the 200+ year-old house, right? Let’s have a look inside…

There’s just something about those low ceilings with the hand-hewn beams that gets me every time!

Below, you can see a bit of the original wide plank floors….

The kitchen has been updated, but in a way that respects the home’s heritage.

The antique Cape has a total of 3 fireplaces and a bake oven.

Also, the home features a “stunning good morning staircase” as the listing blurb declares:

Good morning! Look at the worn treads and risers on those stairs! You can feel the history in this house.

Four-poster bed with handmade quilt and eyelet bed skirt!

(Is it just me?)

And look at the OLD barn outside…

I’m expecting a brawny blacksmith to walk out that door at any second.

Price?

$279,900

Not bad for all that history!
