Historically standing strong circa 1770, the ~Forster Mansion~ is a more than 4000 square foot stone colonial on a 10 acre gentleman~s farm. Bordered by about 1300 feet of creek frontage and 65 acres of preserved forest, the lot is more than secluded even though just on the fringe of the city limits. The multiple out buildings and tightly fenced pastures encourage your inner farmer to completely over do it.
