Pay $1.3M For an Incredible Amount of Folk Music History


In a bit of real estate news sure to delight history and music buffs alike, The Little House in Orangetown, N.Y.—a former gathering place for folk music elite like Woody Guthrie, Pete Seeger, and poet Carl Sandburg in the 1940's—is newly on the market for $1.295M. Built in 1810, the home also apparently once neighbored George Washington and Marquis de Lafayette's digs, according to local folk lore. Now, the home features wide plank floors, vintage fireplaces, and original exposed beams from those days, but has undergone numerous renovations and—in the words of the brokerbabble—has been "enlarged with seamless additions." True enough, there's a state-of-the art kitchen, a finished basement, a wine cellar, and an overall infrastructure that's "completely modernized for the 21st century." Take a look into the past, below:
