This old house reminds me of where Christopher Robin may have lived, after all, isn't that Pooh Bear's tree out front? I can almost see Christopher running through the long grass with a red balloon clutched in one hand and piglet in the other. Look up there in the branches of the old copper beech and you just might spot a big bee's nest dripping with honey. Lay out a checkered table cloth and all the animals can have a picnic. Even Eeyore will come dragging his tail behind him. Well, it's fun to imagine anyway.
This old house is for sale. We actually took a look inside back in the winter months. It needs a lot of work. It has been sold once and cleaned up since we looked. The overgrown bushes have been trimmed and the rooms cleaned. The last resident was an elderly woman with lots of money. I think she passed away and left her home to out of town relatives who auctioned her treasures (the real value) and then put the house up for sale. Along with the house comes an "out building". It was some kind of a fruit or vegetable processing center in the day, not apples, but something I can't recall. It could be a beautiful place, the realtor says it is a "diamond in the rough", but it needs so much work that I'm not sure it will ever happen.
