About This Old House

Built in 1892, this beautiful, well-maintained Victorian home is located in the heart of baseball’s legendary hometown. Winner of the Village of Cooperstown’s 2010 Historical Preservation award, this gracious Queen Anne revival with its classic asymmetrical façade and dominant front facing gable offers original woodwork, parquet floors, and fixtures, stained glass, ceramic tiled fireplace, tin ceilings and extensive millwork. A welcoming front porch leads to an entry hall with a beautiful staircase and two sets of original-glass paned French doors that open into double parlors, each with its own bay window, and a propane fireplace. A large dining room features a built-in china cabinet (with doors that open on both the kitchen and the dining room sides) and a third bay window. Off the dining room is a functional kitchen with some of the original woodwork, double ovens, lots of cabinet space, original tin ceiling and wide-planked wooden floor. A side enclosed porch leads to a charming backyard and stone patio planted with perennials. Second floor boasts a graceful landing, a sleep porch, four bedrooms, full bath, and back staircase leading to the kitchen. A large airy light-filled attic with full size windows offers a wonderful bright space to renovate into a family/play room or a third-floor master suite. The house is located conveniently in the center of town just steps from Main Street – easy walking distance to schools, stores, and Bassett Medical Center. A short drive to the Opera House on pristine Lake Otsego, (“Glimmerglass”). The area is a step back in time, with historic buildings, charming Main Street and many cultural attractions, including museums, galleries, parks, camp grounds, restaurants, shops and antique dealers.
