Own a piece of history the "PIPER HOUSE" stone home built Circa 1790-1800. The front facade of the two story home is built of carefully cut stones, while other elevations are rubble stone. Massive stone chimneys rise at either gable end. The Piper House is five bays wide. At the rear of the house is a two-story, four-bay brick ell added about 30 years after the original house was built. Elegant woodwork is seen through out the home. Upon entry you find the library, with 2 fireplaces and built-ins; on the other side is the formal living room with fireplace with a carved period mantel. There are chair rails, hand-planed window jambs and original iron box locks with lever handles throughout the house. A door at the rear of the living room opens into the dining room, which is in the brick wing of the house. In the Kitchen is a shallow fireplace with a simple original mantelpiece. Beyond the kitchen at the end of the wing is the "keeping room" with a very large service fireplace and closed cupboard on either side. The second level is home to three bedrooms two with fireplaces and an added bath. Leaving this area to a landing which at one time went to the 2nd story porch now leading to a much larger bedroom with built-in closets was built as a "ball room" for entertaining guests. The floor of this ball room has springs in the floor to release some of the noise of dancing. Beyond this room is a much smaller back room, which at one time was only accessible from the porch was the slave room. The views from the second story porch of the back yard is amazing looking out over the gardens featuring period flowerbeds lovingly created by the present owner. There is a small barn used as a garage, potting shed and a later building added once used as a museum and gift shop. (Could be used as a possible guest house. )
