Every once in a while a house comes along that knocks the breath right out of me. (Well, okay, that happens to me quite a bit.) But this home stands apart….

1) It is very colorful

2) It is very old

3) It is for sale for an EXCELLENT price!

I discovered the Mullica House on the day-dream inducing website Old House Dreams.

The home is located in Mullica Hill, New Jersey, and dates back to around 1704 [“around” because you can never really know for sure with these pre-revolutionary war era homes that predate official records.]

This is from the listing blurb:

The Mullica House is the Oldest House in Historic Mullica at 308 Years Old and is on the National Register of Historical places. This Unique and inviting property was built by Swedish settlers Eric Mullica Jr and his wife Anne Catherine

The historic Cape Cod style house was last used as a doll shop business.

It has 3 bedrooms and 1 bathroom so it would also make a very nice residence.

Asking price is a very reasonable $175,000.

Some of the defining features of this home include: a cedar shake roof, copper rain gutters, exposed brick walls, wide planked floors, beamed ceilings and brick floors.

This house emanates such olde-world charm (look at that Dutch door!).

It would have been fun to see this place set up as a doll shop…

My imagination is going wild thinking of the entrepreneurial opportunities for this old house!

The wall stenciling and floor art are adorable…

I’m not a huge fan of raising small children in very old houses but this whimsical house just seems to be calling out for some kiddos.

The .33 acre lot backs to a wooded area and has plenty of parking in the side yard.
