Located in Genoa Township in Brighton, this beautiful, historic farmhouse includes ten acres! Built in 1856, this home has been impeccably maintained, and still has original wood flooring. It features 4 beds, 2 baths and 2,288 sq ft. Tons of detail including high ceilings, gorgeous trim and moldings, exposed brick and hardwood floors. With rich history, the home has been in the same family since it was built, with the exception of a few years in the 1930’s. The brick was made locally and brought to the site by wagon. There is also a small brick building that was used to smoke meat which would be hung in the attic for winter. Tons of character to be appreciated!
