Car-Free Country House: Victorian B&B in Fleischmanns, $299,000

  |  May 2, 2012

We just can’t keep our hands and brains out of Delaware County this week, so we’re going with it. This lovely number in the heart of the village of Fleischmanns used to be the Highlands Inn B&B. It’s big; over 6000 square feet, and the price has been dropped a lot since we’ve been watching it (not that long ago it was $495,000).

You could make it your new B&B, if so inclined, but for the price, we might consider keeping it all to ourselves.

There’s a lot going on in here, what with 9 bedrooms and 5.5 baths. There’s a billiard room, a really cool commercial kitchen, and a library, just in case you feel like reenacting your favorite board game (Fun Fact: Apparently, it’s Cluedo everywhere else but in North America, where it’s called Clue).

The Trailways bus station is less than a half-mile away on Main Street, and it’s walking distance to the post office, a couple of restaurants, and a pretty Methodist church, right across the street.

Make sure you take a moment to check out the pictures on the realtor’s website. It shows the little intricate goodies that make this house what it is.
