Beautifully Maintained 7 Acre McConell Homestead Farmhouse

779 Co Rd 31, Granville, NY 12832, USA
$399,000

Description

Situated in Washington County, NY, this sweet farm will bring a smile to your face. Meticulously maintained, the 1840 original features gleam and blend seamlessly with the updated kitchen with Granville’s famous slate and granite countertops, and scenic picture windows. The first floor step up master suite is a welcome addition to the structure along with smart spaces that open the rooms, a large living area and back porch that captures the beauty of the surrounding pastures, hay fields, mountains and old stone walls. Running through the back of the yard you will hear the peaceful sounds of the west branch of Black Creek while watching the sunset in the distance and taking in the additional loveliness of the well thought out perennial gardens tucked against one of three freshly painted barns, one could easily be a guest cottage. 30 minutes from Saratoga Springs!

The home is located on land granted in 1764 by King George to the Attorney General for the Province of New York, later confiscated by what became New York State following General Burgoyne’s surrender in 1777. The land was purchased from the state by David Stewart in 1784.

The second owner, Abraham Johnston, constructed the Greek Revival home that currently exists on the property, purchased by John McConnell in 1863. The McConnell family farmed the land until 1932. Since that time, four families have lived at 779.

The gorgeous agricultural views from the front and back doors include the Getty and Campbell farms, portions of which were once part of the McConnell homestead.
