Talk about good bones: This 3,360-square-foot fading Federal beauty has definitely got those. What it needs is just about everything else while making sure its c.1820s character is kept intact. And, this house has been waiting for that restoration since we first featured it here back in 2019. Will 2022 finally be its year?
