Like something from a storybook, this grand home minutes from Cooperstown inspires and tempts you with fantasies of decadent garden parties, delicious dinners, and divine evenings. Updated in just the right places, but true to its Greek Revival core, the property feels like a movie set, one you'd expect intriguing men and women roaming about the near-perfect gardens. Built circa 1832 by John Luce, the property has seen its fair share of stories, even if none has been filmed for a Hollywood production. From the simple elegance of the front porch's stone steps with IONIC COLUMNS, and cut lead crystal door, to the GLASS-ENCLOSED SUNROOM overlooking the large outside deck and the gardens below, this is a special home. Featuring HARDWOOD FLOORS throughout, 7 BEDROOMS, 4 FIREPLACES and 3.25 BATHS on the first 2 floors, and multiple rooms and potential bath on the 3rd floor, the home would be ideal as a B&B, or artist retreat. Or simply use it as an expansive family home where everyone has a room of their own and extra ones for pursuing crafts and personal passions, as well as entertaining. Speaking of entertaining, the elegant dining room, with easy access to the large BUTLER PANTRY with original BUILT-IN CABINETS, and the gorgeous sunroom and connecting deck, provide more than ample space to host friends, family and guests. Elegant QUARTER-ROUND windows, period-STENCILED FLOORS, original light fixtures and pristine woodwork are just some of the many details you'll adore. The LARGE BACKYARD bordered by MATURE PERENNIAL GARDENS adds to the versatility of the home with its large CARRIAGE HOUSE, raised stone terrace, and COTTAGE, perfect for an outdoor bar, or food service space. The cottage's HAND-BLOWN GLOBE LAMPS with gas-fired wicks really finish the setting nicely.
