A three-bedroom, one-bath home sitting pretty in West Mt. Airy just hit the market, wooing us with its farmhouse vibes.

The home at 734 Carpenter Lane is indeed a farmhouse that dates back to the 1840s. Today, it clocks in at 1,520 square feet, a bit larger than the original structure after an addition was added to the home in the 1920s.

It has a lot of curb appeal, with a side porch that runs the width of the house and dark green window shutters. Inside, the original pumpkin pine floors have been refinished and there are interior window shutters, too.

Despite its age, the home has been updated throughout: The kitchen, with its mint-colored cabinetry, was remodeled in 2005. A nice detail: The fireplace is two-sided, facing the kitchen and the dining room. The home’s sole bathroom has also been recently renovated.

The two main bedrooms are on the second floors, while the third bedroom is technically a loft-like space on the third level. There’s a long built-in desk with storage, so it could make for a nice office, too.
