About the property

Once called “Murphy’s Farm” this beautifully and lovingly maintained period home, 1840, has its original charm amongst the continued updates. Formal entrance foyer leads to a living room on the left. The living room, with the original hardwood floors, cascading period built-ins, has a fireplace (propane insert for efficiency) and lovely custom French doors to the rear gardens. The original hard wood floors, windows and molding throughout the house remains. To the right of the foyer is a sitting room with an entrance door from the side porch. Open and inviting, the sitting room steps up to the kitchen with plenty of cupboards, a pantry, laundry and first floor full bath. The formal dining room is off the kitchen with a fireplace (propane insert) and a back staircase to an upstairs office or Nanny’s room. A door from the hall entrance to the back staircase, also leads to the back gardens. The center hall foyer has a custom curved staircase, which was later added. Stunning curves take you to a sweet landing, three bedrooms with eyebrow windows and another full bath. The master bedroom is spacious with a large closet. 

The home sits on 1.68 acres and has views of the meadow, also part of this offering, of 6.66 acres across County Road 22. Neither property is zoned Agricultural. This lovely home is situated just minutes to the center of Richfield Springs, State Route 20, with Canandarago Lake, grocery shopping, seasonal Farmer’s Markets, coffee shops and restaurants. The State Route 20 corridor heads west to Syracuse and east to Albany. Additionally, heading south, this home is approximately 10 miles to the historic village of Cooperstown, with its world-renowned Baseball Hall of Fame, Otsego Lake, Glimmerglass Opera Festival and the restaurants, shops and boutiques. The undeniable period charm is outstanding, and the grounds and perennial gardens are inviting and relaxing. There is also great potential for substantial rental income, from All Star Village in Oneonta and the Cooperstown Dream Park. Both seasonal baseball summer camps with the need of accommodations, beginning the end of May until Labor Day. The property has not been lumbered and there is additional income in the desirable trees on the vacant 6 plus acre property across the road. A must-see property.
