Got a thing for fireplaces? No shame; we feel that, too. That’s why we’re drooling over all the fireplaces in this Cornwall Colonial house. 

Before we’ve even stepped inside, we’re already eyeballing the big side porch, perfect for some rocking-chair-sittin’. From that porch, you can watch the world of Cornwall village go by while tucked-away behind a row of trees.

By our count, there are at least four fireplaces in this circa-1802 farmhouse, which is a lot of fireplaces even for a roomy 4,092-square-foot interior. According to the listing, one of them is decorative, but still! In the dining room, there’s this brick beauty…

…plus two more on the main floor, one in the family room and one in the rec room…

…and, we think we found the decorative fireplace upstairs, too.

Meanwhile, back down on the main floor is an updated kitchen with embossed ceilings…

…not to mention an original dumbwaiter!

There’s also a living room on the main floor, separate from the family room and recreation room…

…and, oh hey look at that! There’s a second kitchen ready to be set up.

Public records state that this building once served as a museum, as well as a non-profit girls’ home, and it occupies a 1.2-acre lot in the middle of Cornwall village, right at the town circle.
