Description for 328 West Street Extension, Oneonta, NY 13820
ONEONTA EXECUTIVE-STYLE HOME ON 16 ACRES: Built in 2001 with design integrity and using only premium appointments, this property, located on West St Extension, offers privacy, convenience to city amenities and a comfortable life style for the most discerning of buyers. Surrounded by pristine forest, the short but private driveway snakes through the woods, opening into a large clearing of lawn, gardens, house and, around the back of the house, a one acre swimming pond, also stocked with fish. The grounds and setting are stunning! And, entering the front door by the freestyle stone path, the home interiors are equally impressive. The front vestibule contains a handy place to remove your shoes, and an entry closet, while opening into the living room with an immediate and riveting view through an oversized picture window of the backyard with its striking waterfront. In fact, entering the living space--living room, dining room and kitchen, the view of the backyard dominates the experience. As expected, the appointments are impressive. The living room features a large fieldstone Rumsford fireplace, oak flooring, built in custom cherry cabinetry and a cathedral ceiling; the large, gourmet kitchen has a ceramic tile floor, silestone and corian counters, extensive maple cabinetry, a generous center island, breakfast bar, all stainless appliances (Subzero fridge, Thermador gas cooktop, Whirlpool double ovens, and Bosch dishwasher) and recessed lighting; the high ceilinged dining room also features an oversized bay window for backyard viewing. Moving down the hall you will pass a convenient laundry/pantry room, two guest bedrooms, also with oversized windows, (currently used as offices), a full tiled bathroom with tub/shower and large vanity, and at the end of the hall, the master suite consists of a 19 x 13 ft bedroom, walk through dressing room and closet (with storage built-ins) and the master bath with shower, toilet and bidet. Heading downstairs, from the foyer you descend into a wide hallway, off to the left will be a massive family room with a second Rumsford fireplace with ceramic surround, wet bar with mini-fridge, built ins for your large screen tv, and at the other end of the room an area for a gym, or pool table, as well as an area plumbed for a hot tub if you should so desire. The floor is ceramic tile, and the room exits out to the rear lawn. Also located downstairs, you will find another generous, light filled bedroom as well as a 3rd full bath. All the living space on this floor is above ground level. The other side of the hall opens into the utilities area, housing the furnace, plumbing and electrical systems, wine cellar and it offers abundant storage space. Addtl details: 4 bay garage (2 bays insulated workshop space currently), 9 ft ceilings throughout, whole house backup generator, Hubbardton lighting fixtures throughout, and premium window treatments. Also, Oneonta schools, and easy access to Cooperstown make this a great opportunity.
