Description for 1245 Oak Hill Road, Franklin, NY 13775
HISTORIC BEAUTY: Write the next great novel, paint your masterpiece, or simply retreat from urban life with this GORGEOUS PROPERTY. The CLASSIC 4 BR FARMHOUSE is far enough from NYC to be a true escape, but close enough for an easy drive and is an ideal full-time home, weekend get away or even great rental. The circa 1820 home, on 105+ ACRES of field & forest on a secluded, town-maintained road, is minutes from historic Franklin village and its many CULTURAL OFFERINGS, including dining, antiquing, and acclaimed Franklin Stage summer theater. The EXPANSIVE home is tastefully UPDATED, yet retains many original features, including WIDE-PLANK WOOD FLOORS, CURVING STAIRCASE and more. Downstairs, an enormous living room, large center foyer, and a cook's choice kitchen offer GREAT ENTERTAINMENT OPTIONS. The kitchen's CENTER-AISLE COOK SPACE and GRANITE and BUTCHER BLOCK surfaces are a chef's dream. A multi-functional WATERFORD STANLEY cooking WOOD STOVE is an efficient heating source and great cooking option with full oven and stove-top components. The owners run the stove all winter as a main heat source and cooking center. The bright foyer, connecting kitchen to living room, has AMPLE STORAGE with 2 lrg closets and an innovative cabinet with pass-thru shelving from kitchen to foyer. A spacious den/office has 2 full wall FLOOR-TO-CEILING BUILT-IN BOOKSHELVES. The living room has EXPOSED BEAMS, an adjacent GARDEN/SUN RM, and access to a COVERED PORCH over looking the valley and views of AMAZING SUNSETS. Numerous windows and doors on both sides offer breezy cool summers, and an elegant JOTUL WOOD STOVE helps keeps the house toasty in winter. The owners rarely use the oil-fired forced-air heating as the 2 efficient wood-stoves warm the house even in the coldest winters. Ascend the curving stair case to a central hall and spacious 2nd floor with 3 BRs (each with lrg CHESTNUT WORMWOOD WARDROBES ), and a EUROPEAN FULL BATH stylishly finished with IMPORTED ITALIAN-TILING on the floor, vanity and shower. A media-room/library just off the stairs, connects to an ENORMOUS MASTER BR (or painting STUDIO). This SKYLIGHT-lit room, with SOARING CEILING and full wall of built-in closets, is a special addition to the classic farmhouse style. With access from the main house and a 2nd STAIRWAY to an outside door, this lrg room could be its own APARTMENT, with or without the adjacent library. A fully-plumbed en suite bathroom is waiting to be finished with your fixtures & styling.The house is a traditional 1 1/2-story frame, with a high-gabled roof, making the full-height 2nd Flr space possible. Original 6/6 double-hung windows surround the downstairs, letting in AMAZING SOUTHWESTERN LIGHT. The notable half-story six-light windows brighten the 2nd floor and enhance this farmhouse appearance. An attached storage/work-room off the kitchen and numerous out-buildings complete the farmhouse setting, including a custom-built wood shed just steps from the main house.
