About the property
Renovated Turn-of-the Century 1900 circa. home, located in the peaceful Village of Hartwick, New York. Approximately nine miles to the center of Historic Cooperstown, New York. The owner has meticulously saved the interior and exterior architecture, when possible, while doing renovations. The owners desire was to keep with the time and style, to preserve the integrity of the home. The property could be used as either a single family home or a three bedroom home with an income producing apartment or Nanny apartment, on the first floor.
The apartment has its own separate entrance and separate porch. This space could also serve as a downstairs office with separate family room and guest bedroom with 3/4 bath. The space is not finished, but would take little work to complete. Gracious foyer entrance with the original winding wood staircase. Large front living room and dining with hardwood floors and high ceilings. There are replacement high efficiency windows throughout. Large mudroom entrance off the back deck with laundry and a 3/4 bath. Even larger Eat-in kitchen with utility closet and walk-in pantry, plenty of shelves and ample counter-tops. The second floor offers the master bedroom with ceiling fan, bath and over-sized walk-in closet. Three additional bedrooms, carpeted and one with a ceiling fan. The large deck off the mudroom expands the width of the kitchen and is roomy for tables, chairs, a grill and plenty of entertaining. The expansive flat groomed lawn is dotted with shade trees and a few perennials. The carriage barn has space for lawn mowers, bicycles, kayaks, gardening equipment etc. and could house a vehicle.
The house is nicely set back, off of the road, with the large front porch, rebuilt to the original footprint. This home is in the Cooperstown Central School district with 855 students throughout grades K-12 with a student teacher ratio of 12:1. Otsego Lake, ten minutes away, is 167 in depth, 8 miles long and a 4000+ acre gem with Cooperstown, a gem itself at it’s southern edge. From Council Rock Park one can see the source of the Susquehanna River, as it heads South 444 miles to the Chesapeake Bay. With tremendous views, crystal clear water, beaches, boating, fishing, it is truly a regional jewel. This home is in a perfect location, within 9 miles of Cooperstown and the Bassett Hospital Main Campus and a quick trip on State Highway 205 to Oneonta with two college campuses and Bassett Clinics. Quiet and peaceful tree lined street with just a short drive to the all the amenities our region has to offer.
