I’m a little puzzled by this home. It’s listed as having five bedrooms. But we don’t see any of them in the photos provided. We do see, however, other rooms, which are quite airy and spacious.

This one is from the collection of 7 Kentucky homes for sale, which we’ve been looking at the past several weeks. It reflects the area’s hilly terrain, built as it is on a hillside.

That, plus the large wraparound deck, give this home a very open feel. The first view provided in the Zillow listing, however, does not look especially “Amish”:

This is the second smallest home of the bunch, at just 1,152 square feet (the smallest has just 768 square feet). So what puzzled me, is given the size of the rooms we are able to see, it’s hard to imagine five more bedrooms within this square footage. They must be quite small.

Here’s a look at the main room.

Check out this stove generating heat to fill this large area.

Kettle resting on top.

In the kitchen we find another stove for cooking.

Closer look.

Not a huge dining table at first look. Perhaps it is expandable.

Pantry room.

Stairs going up, presumably to the bedrooms. No bathrooms in this place, like the other homes in this plain settlement.

Like the last home, this has some unfinished parts. This is presumably some sort of utility room. You can see the edge of a washer on the left, and what looks like another stove.

Outside on the deck. Looks like a great place to catch some sun. Nice view they have too.

Looking closer we can see wind chimes, a bird feeder, baby swing, and those colorful spinny things.

Nice swing. Looks like someone was enjoying a drink.

Another view, from around the corner.

This looks like an accessibility ramp out front.

This appears to be some sort of storage shed. A little upturned boat on the side there, and, I think I see a buggy wheel. Not the missing electric meter in the box. This was originally English-built. I am also a little puzzled by the windowed doors. I would guess they were added later, maybe by this Amish family.

Here’s a shot from distance showing how the home is situated.

You can see it looks like this home had an original structure, and later got an addition.

Another view, with buggies just visible.

What’s your guess on the price of this home? The lot is 3 acres, by the way.

It’s on the market for $87,000. This one has been listed on Zillow for a little over a year now, which may reflect the difficulty of selling an Amish home without conventional plumbing and bathrooms in an English market. That noted, I quite like this home.
