Description

This truly eclectic late Victorian estate combines its Gothic Revival and Italianate exterior with exquisite Queen Anne interior detailing. The robust ashlar masonry wings are accented by a French Second Empire tower, topped with a delicate Italian cornice that rounds out the feel of a historic landmark residence. Inside you will find the original staircase balusters with ornate newel posts, as well as beautiful, beveled panel doors with original bull’s eye molding. This home captures so many prevailing styles of the time, refined into a simplified, cohesive elegance.

It is an imposing structure overlooking the Canajoharie Creek and White Park. It was built by Doctor James White, one of the village founders, as a wedding present for his wife, and is still known in town as “the White House”. The granite used in its structure, was from the same local quarry as the Brooklyn Bridge. The house has 191 feet on the Canajoharie Creek, is two blocks from downtown and the marina, and is on the Erie Canal walking tour.

It is presently gutted and in the process of restoration. Bullwork has been completed, along w the main electrical, awaiting your final plans. There is poured cellar floor and many windows have been replaced, as was the roof with manufactured slate. House is on the Historic register so grants might be available for restoration.

Total of 5 stories (about 6,000 sq ft) are terraced to the Canajoharie Creek and borders White Park, while there are 3 stories at street level.

The 2nd level has been renovated, as an apartment for caretaker, condo, or 2 BRs and 2 BAs for BnB. Presently rented as 1BR and 2BAs for $830 + utilities.

The main floor has space for living, dining and utility rooms, library, kitchen, den, with the next level providing room for 4 large BRs with closets and BAs. The top level (former servants’ quarters) has 4 rooms, including great room with 25 ft ceilings.

Original woodwork, shutters, doors, cast brass hardware, mahogany and walnut staircase, along with 2 granite and soapstone fireplaces with gold inlay, are in mint condition.

The condition is ideal for restoration in the design and usage needed by the new owner. Perfect site for condos, apartments, corporate or event venues, commercial retail office space, single family home or YOUR vacation or Bed and Breakfast. Zoned mixed use. Town is open to adjacent park purchase.
