When we were children, a friend of my father’s owned this house, which was way out in the country. I remember the family, who had a bunch of boys. We’d play in the fields surrounding the house and explore the property. Year by year, the family sold off some of the 170+ acres until just the house and a little less than an acre were left. New “town-home” developments completely encircled it. The family moved and the house fell into disrepair.
Now it’s on the market again, and will go for auction later this week.
The property includes this sweet octagonal spring house, which could be used as an office or studio. (If you look on the right of this picture, you can see how closely the new development encroaches onto the property.)
