Behold, yet another historic abode sporting exactly nine fireplaces, this one by way of Falmouth.
The landmark Elm Arch Inn was built in 1810 and has been family owned and operated for over 100 years. According to the listing, "this house was bombarded by the British ship Nimrod in the War of 1812. In one of the many parlors you can still see where the cannonball hit the Inn." If that's not enough of a conversation piece, the .59 acre property is also home to Falmouth's first in-ground swimming pool. In addition, the 7,180 square footer is chock full of antique charm and features 15-17 bedrooms with six full and four half baths. Alas, none of the above has been enough to lure in a buyer. The listing debuted on the market way back in October 2010 looking for $1,150,000. Four years and four pricechops later, the ask is down to an even $700,000.
