Farmhouse Friday: “Diamond in the Rough” Sells in One Week

farmhouse friday icon That was fast: This six-bedroom farmhouse-style home in Blue Bell has an offer in after just eight days–though it seems it was on and off the market before. Perhaps the listing’s “diamond-in-the-rough” characterization actually helped–buyers seem to like it when they’re spoken to like intelligent people who can accurately distinguish linoleum from hardwood.

Whether rough or no, the house is quite a catch, with five fireplaces, a wrap-around porch, big rooms, built-ins and pocket doors. It sits on almost two acres of land with a pool. The last asking price was $465,000.
