Known for his precise hand at recreating and restoring historical buildings, architect R. Brognard Okie was commissioned to refurbish the Betsy Ross House in 1937. Three years later, the Colonial-Revivalist directed the design of this Penn Valley farmhouse on a little over two acres of land.
Singular features include iron hinges, wide-planked floors, and three “extraordinary” fireplaces. One room has a mural depicting sailing ships and rolling hills.
The living and dining rooms are connected by a covered porch, which the listing notes would make for easy entertaining. A second entrance to one of the five bedrooms allows for a private home office. A full bathroom and dressing room can be found in the master bedroom.
Last week the home’s price was reduced from $1.49 million to $1.45 million.
See the home for yourself during an open house Sunday, January 19, between 2pm-4pm.
