Mantles surrounding the three working fireplaces were here in the 1850s.
Flooring throughout this home is wide planked and knotty.
The kitchen, now a summery blue and white, has a window over the sink with view of the large backyard.
A formal parlor with a fireplace is in the front of the house.
The current owner calls the second floor the dormitory because each bedroom has multiple beds.
The landscaped backyard includes a koi pond guarded by a weeping Alaskan cedar and surrounded by a perennial flower garden.
