The house was built around 1764 (somebody tested the wood inside and dated it to 1761-1764). The exterior is a mix from different eras. It was in pretty rough shape even in 2015; the dentil moulding is completely new, but that type of detailing was common on Georgian-era buildings. The side dormer looks like something that could have dated from 1800 while the front parts look like 1860-1880. The roofline seems to be original.

This was a side building that was once attached to a much larger house.

Here is an old painting (seems like 1800-1830? There is no date):

The linked article on the Great Pontack is pretty neat too.
