This wonderful piece of Kensington history is now ready for its new owners! Originally the Blake Tavern that existed 1759-1830, this stately home was moved in 1862 to its current spot by the Rev. Ellington using a 32-oxen team. Since then the charm has been accruing, as have the stories (if these walls could talk?!). 3 bedrooms (truly 2 very usable) and 2 full bathrooms plus wide pine floors and beautiful exposed wood beams. The home needs lots of cosmetic work plus the back roof of the barn is gone, the barn needs some structural work as well, and one part of the main house that isn't metal roofing, could use replacement. The septic is assumed to be in failure but no inspections have been done on it. However if you're willing to put in some elbow grease and love, once repaired and renovated this would be a gorgeous property with quite the historical value. Situated on a stunning piece of land near Sawyer park and its trails, plus close to highway access and amenities, you'll feel you've escaped into a tranquil garden oasis with the multiple patios and garden areas. Turn the beautiful old multi-story barn back into a blacksmith's shop as once was housed here or any number of supplemental income opportunities- or just enjoy its incredible charm! Don't miss out on this wonderful opportunity to own a piece of local history. Property is strictly sold "as-is". Will not go FHA, VA or USDA for financing.
