Description for 49 Water Street, Franklin, NY 13775
Feel yourself relax as you walk up the stone path, past fragrant quince and honeysuckle, and onto the porch of this village home. The 1st house built on Water street, the farmhouse-style home is accurate to the mid 1800 era, yet modern touches make it contemporary and fresh. The home's profile belies the 11-room expansiveness. Numerous doors and entryways, including glass-paned French doors, interconnect 1st floor rooms, allowing light to filter through, as well as creating a convenient traffic flow. The home includes energy-saving updates to prevent heat loss, and solutions to improve heat utilization and efficiency. Stylish wood-frame, double paned replacement windows were installed in select rooms where older windows had no storms. When the fireplace is used, the entire house benefits from its warmth and heating costs dramatically reduced. Enter via the front door to the dining room with hardwood floors and beautiful 2-over-2 windows. Turn left to the living room, or pass straight into a classic eat-in kitchen, with farmhouse sink, convenient counter L'', built-in storage and access to a pantry/laundry room. A door to the patio makes for easy entertaining and enjoyment of a large yard and lovely gardens. A unique kitchen entryway provides access to a full bath via 1 door and a 2nd door opens to a family room (or, optional 1st-floor BR). This room also has its own door to the bath and additional entrances to a living room and office. The office has a single French door that lets light pass between rooms creating a sense of openness without sacrificing privacy. Ascending the living room's central staircase you find a reading room with doors to 3 BRs and 2nd full bath. The large master BR has a huge closet, and luminous double skylights. The 2nd spacious BR includes a portion of the original wooden roof exposed for added character, and a newly remodeled 3rd BR is a comfy 12 by 8. The 2nd floor bath is classically styled with wainscoting and claw-foot tub with shower attachment. Within walking distance of the Franklin Stage, the Franklin Central School, pool, tennis courts, playgrounds, basketball and grocery, this home is central to all Franklin offers. And yet, the home has a sense of near-total privacy. An inviting backyard, with views of surrounding mountains, is ideal for relaxation or intimate entertainment. The attraction of Franklin village is undeniable with its beautiful, walkable, tree-lined streets and well-maintained homes. Once the center of life along the Catskill Turnpike, Franklin is a microcosm of early and mid-1800's building styles. And still, even with this rich history, Franklin feels contemporary and culturally relevant, with well-respected theater, great schools, dining and more. Minutes from Oneonta and Delhi, and under 3 hours from NYC, this home in Franklin village is a special find.
