The home and property has been restored and ready to be enjoyed. The main house has been approved to operate a Bed and Breakfast business if you choose to do so. This 1800's gem has been totally reworked from the foundation on up, to new home standards, adding modern conveniences like 5 zoned radiant heating while keeping the charm and appeal intact. Character and classic features are prevalent throughout the house, original chestnut flooring, gorgeous Rumford fireplaces, one warms the living room and the other in the kitchen has a crane and kettle set in place. It warms the large open kitchen. There are 4 bedrooms and 3 1/2 bathrooms with the master bedroom downstairs and a welcoming guest bedroom with fully independent heat and bath up. Outdoors a large patio and beautiful 10 x 25 porch are ideal for family gatherings, barbeques and entertaining with the sunset views.


The property has a new "Guest Cottage" or caretakers home a stones throw to the horse stables. A wonderful place with custom kitchen, wide-board flooring, heating and cooling system with a view of the rolling hillside.


The large barn has also been well maintained and restored, has 8 horse stalls downstairs with a heated tack room and a feed room. Enclosed tie & wash area for your horses. A works lunging pen out back.The upper barn has been finished to offer a large space for entertaining with the character of the original post and beam construction. The wagon wheel chandeliers offer the finishing touch.

An 1800s post and beam barn on foundation has just been added to the property. Includes a heated 3 bay garage and shop space.


The fields have been worked and re-seeded with timothy, broom and alfalfa to insure a rich crop of hay...The property operates as a thoroughbred racehorse boarding facility offered with 100 +\- acres. The land has some of the area's best soil types to use as you wish. The property is a rolling terraced parcel with a blend of woods and meadows. At the highest peak just a trail's walk behind the home you can catch a view of Otsego Lake.

If a Bed and Breakfast is in your future plans then create your business here on the farm... Already approved to do so...

A true gem of a show place that truly must be seen to appreciate!

This home also enjoys the added bonus of rights to Otsego Lake at Public Landing, where you can swim, picnic and launch a watercraft at no expense (dock spaces are available at a nominal fee ) . Springfield Center is boosted as being "the place to be on the 4th of July", a parade running for over 100 years. A short drive down the lake is Cooperstown NY, where you will find museums, restaurants, golf and Saratoga Springs is in reach for a great day trip. Truly a picturesque and a peaceful setting place!
