I'll be honest I could live in a brand new house. All the cool new gadgets and appliances would make it fun but given a choice, I will take an old house any day of the week. My current home actually started out as a beach bungalow that was brought from Staten Island to the Hudson Valley. I am a sucker for a house with a story.

I first wrote about this house last summer when it came on the market and I will be honest I am surprised it is still available. Living in a house from the 1700s isn't everyone's dream but I sure hope someone wants to take on this piece of American history and turn it into a home or even a museum. It is not easy to live in a house on a historic registry but could be a thrill for the right history buff.
