This handsome estate is known as “Wilson’s Inheritance“. I couldn’t find out the reason why it bears this name, but we can let our imaginations do the legwork and create a plausible hypothesis. (Perhaps Master Wilson had six son’s but he decided to leave the house instead to his youngest daughter…)

In any case, the house is old… one of those so-old-we-don’t-really-know-how-old it is. Only that it is circa 1838. And it is a beauty!

This private 120+ acre estate retains many of its 19th century buildings including a large bank barn, and an elegant manor home that reflects the affluence of its original owner.

I really love the blue trim on the old cupboards, doors and window sills, but those newer cabinets and appliances (below) appear to be just sort of shoved in there:

Kind of a letdown for a million dollar-plus priced home.

But it’s the grounds that make this house a true estate…
