Rare opportunity to own a piece of early US history for $325,000! This Original "Nottingham Lots" home, built for founding members' family which they named "Goshen" has been fascinatingly untouched in majority of structure and architecture. The original structure dates to at least 1747, the West Wing addition c.1825 and the third enlargement dates c.1885.* Now sitting on 2.37 acres of the original 203, the property includes the main 4BR house (which features large rooms to make it modern-day livable)plus a SEPARATE guest house with the 5th BR and 3rd BA and features beautiful interior stone walls and the original straight-sawn lumber staircase likely dating it to the pre-Civil War era. Additional unique historical elements include "dignitary" signature etchings in window glass and original fireplace mantles. Historian and architectural expert reports are available.

Guest House Included!
Shown to the left in the photo, behind the main 4 BR house, this property includes a quaint 1 BR, 1BA with kitchen and LR guest house, complete with exposed stone walls and original staircase constructed of straight-sawn lumber.

Exterior West Wing c.1825
The original structure was built c.1747 as a stone "two over two" (rm) house, then c.1825 this large (stucco over brick) addition was added & now serves as the FR & DR on the main floor & 2 additional generous BRs upstairs.

Interior West Wing
Although modern day comforts have been added, much of the original elements and historical integrity of the home remains in-tact. Many interior doors, trim, hardware and decorative FP mantles are authentic and original.

"Dignitary" signature etchings in windows
Per custom, if special visitors "called on" the family and they wore genuine diamonds, they would etch their signature or initials in the window(s) of the home. This home boasts multiple window etchings.

Side door, original stone structure
This door enters into the side of the original c. 1747 main room of the house which now serves as the living room. The thickness of the original stone structure is made evident by the depth of the opening.
