NOTES ABOUT THE RENOVATIONS AND ADDITIONS:

The house on the property is one of the oldest surviving farmsteads in the Skaneateles Valley, and one of the few still retaining the original Greek Revival character — hallmark of Upstate New York and specifically of the Finger Lakes Region.

It was thoroughly refurbished by the current owners who took the existing house dating from the early 19c down to the bare structure, bracing and re-sheathing it, then installing new Hardy Board siding, as well as new trim and exterior moldings faithfully replicating the architectural details historically existing. New properly proportioned aluminum-clad Pella, double-glazed, true-divided light, ‘Architect Series” windows were installed. Exterior trim in vulnerable parts of the house was replaced with rotproof PVC board.

All interior finishes: walls, ceilings, trim, door and window casings as well as floors were installed new with meticulous historical accuracy. Further, extensive additions were carried out, their details and overall configuration seamlessly related to and extending the historical character of the existing house. Among these additions are a new Primary Bedroom wing, a screened porch expanding the kitchen space and an enclosed Breezeway which links the House to a new Red Barn containing an open Studio space with Modernist overtones situated over a three-bay garage.

The whole is roofed with highly durable, ribbed forest green metal panels, evoking in their modularity and color the traditional metal roofs associated with the Greek Revival.

It can indeed be said that this is a “New Old House” historically resonant yet modern in all its comforts and attributes.
