An Exact Replica of an 1850 Greek Revival Farmhouse
The floor plan of the house follows that of a side stair Greek Revival. The front door opens to a large airy keeping room with living, dining and kitchen areas, custom cabinets that are extra deep and two-board cherry counter tops. From the keeping room one enters the ell to the mudroom (a transom with old glass is above the opening to the ell as if a door originally had separated the house from a shed). The mudroom has a cabinet with a sink and maple countertop, washer/dryer hookups and beadboard and above the bead board are 5 antique hooks for outside clothing or anything else one wants to hang. Off the mudroom is the walk-in pantry, a tiled bath (subway wall tile, hex floor tile) and a spacious bedroom (ochre colored milk-painted floor).
Going back to the side stair and up (stairway has four cherry newel posts and bannisters) one enters onto a wide, windowed area (9'4" X 31') intended as a library/gallery space, and off this space are two large bedrooms, a tiled bath, a walk-in closet with shelving and an extra-large spare room for family or office.
24' X 28' Hemlock framed, pine sided Barn; two stories with stairway to full loft (pine flooring), perfect for studio. Poured concrete floor and footings to below the frost line, electricity and frost free water line (usable throughout winter).
A private, bucolic setting, 2 streams, stone walls, abundant wildlife and gentle land to enjoy just minutes from the village which sits at the foot of Otsego Lake. Historic Cooperstown is endowed with the Farmer's Museum, an authentic village depicting early liife in the Leatherstockinng area, made famous by James Fenimore Cooper, the New York State Historical Association's Fenimore House and its extensive collection of Native American art and artifacts, the internationally renowned Glimmerglass Opera (reviewed in the New York Times), Bassett teaching hospital and the world class Otesaga Hotel and Resort and classic golf course.
