This Gothic Revival and Italianate Style House in Le Raysville Will Bring Out Your Romantic Side [GALLERY]
If you’ve never been to Le Raysville, Pennsylvania, you’re missing out. You won’t find bells and whistles and flashy lights or tons of traffic. What you will find are friendly and smiling faces, farms, and even a tiny market where cash is the only currency accepted and the employees know everyone by their first name.
I will never regret the decision my husband and I made to move to the country. While our lives are still filled with activity, our home has become our retreat from the chaos of life. The first time we drove through the winding woods to look at our house, we were shocked by the number of people on the rural roads who waved to us, strangers. Now, we're the people doing the waving.
If you’re ready to make a change and move your family to a place where life moves a bit slower, where the population is small (under 300), where people are heaps more friendly, where you can walk to the town grocery store, and where you’ll be under 40 minutes from the heart of Vestal, you might want to consider the adorable town of Le Raysville, Pennsylvania.
If you love old and historic homes, you're in for a treat. Built in 1875 during the Victorian era, I found a home for sale in quaint Le Raysville which features the much loved Gothic Revival and Italianate styles. The Italianate style is reminiscent of the romantic villas of Renaissance Italy and the Gothic Revival style showcases impressive peaked roofs, arches, and elements all of which were inspired by medieval Europe.
Listed with Crystal Babcock at Century 21 Jackson Real Estate out of Towanda, this fantastic nearly 150-year-old home is priced at $169,900 and boasts over 2,000 square feet of living space, four bedrooms, four fireplaces, hardwood floors, floor to ceiling pressed tin and even a charming carriage house. Oh, and this home is only a three-minute walk from the small town market that I mentioned.
