The listing blurb calls this a “primitive style preserved home“, but it’s really not that primitive at all. In fact, it has nearly 2300 square feet of living space! That’s a few hundred feet bigger than my ramshackle old house!

This adorable home is currently listed on the market in Grantham, Pennsylvania for $259,900.

The two-story log home, which has been added onto over the years, features 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and even a newer one-car garage.

I love that the owners kept the country vintage charm of the place intact…

Apparently this home is located in a small historic village called Grantham Village. I bet this would be a fun house to stop at while trick-or-treating!

This is part of the newer addition at the rear of the house:

You can see (below) how they left some of the wood and chinking walls of the original structure exposed…

The bedrooms in the old part of the home are small (of course – they didn’t have his & hers shoe closets back then), but delightfully decorated in period style…

The thing I really love about this house is that they cleaned it up with new drywall, but preserved the original hand-hewn beam-work:

Look at the marks on those beams!

Another unique historic feature about this house is the built-in antique home safe…

No word on how old this safe is, or if it is original to the house, but what a neat feature!

We once toured an 1890’s house that had one of these old safes cemented right into the basement walls!
