Dream Stone House For Sale (At Totally Unattainable Price)

I spent last weekend about a mile from the historic hamlet of Kripplebush, a close collection of beautifully tended 18th-century homes, with a white-steepeled church and a one-room schoolhouse as its downtown. I stopped to take a picture of this house because I was starting to surrender my obsession with bungalows in favor of a new inclination toward stone houses, of which there are many in this area. This house also had incredible views, a sparkling pond, gorgeous landscaping and a pool. I was gawking, not shopping.

But it turns out the place is actually for sale, and has its own video as advertisement. So now, even though I can’t actually purchase it (it’s asking $928,000), I can continue gawking from afar. Stats and details on the jump.193 Kripplebush Road (Realtor.com) GMAP
