What do a restoration contractor and and an elementary art teacher have in
common?

136 Parkhurst Rd, for one thing.

Tim & Suzanne Reed have had several interesting careers between them, from fine
art, graphic design and art education (Suzanne); to historic renovations, custom
homes, and an antique and architectural salvage business (Tim.) It was their love of
old structures, and imagining the possibilities, that led them to an 1830s stone
farmhouse nicknamed “The Old Stone House” at 136 Parkhurst Rd, Wilton, NY.
In addition to painstakingly restoring this home, Tim gradually filled his barn with
antique windows, doors, columns, flooring, iron works, fixtures, and just about
anything old that had been marked for demolition. When it came time to build the
Parkhurst kitchen addition, he was able to incorporate many of these historic
antique items into the project. Around the same time, he purchased and dismantled
a neglected and unwanted one room schoolhouse in Northumberland, NY, which
he carefully labeled, disassembled, and reassembled on the Parkhurst property as a
workshop/studio/guesthouse.

It is this innate sense of design and a vision for repurposing that has, over the
years, given Tim and Suzanne the reputation of being the most creative builders in
the Saratoga Springs area. Their homes have been featured in the Saratoga
Showcase of Homes, industry magazines, and been the recipients of multiple
Saratoga Springs Preservation Foundation awards.
Filled with character, “The Old Stone House” is situated on 3 manicured acres
nestled in the heart of Saratoga Springs School District. It boasts perennial
gardens, a maple sugar shack, Adirondack cabin, chicken coops, large barn, and
many additional acres for hiking, camping and sledding. There’s even a scenic
picnic area overlooking the mountains of Vermont. With a state of the art kitchen
addition just steps away from two well-stocked ponds, you can watch trout rising
to the morning hatch, ducklings, and even the resident blue heron, all from your
dining room windows.

136 Parkhurst can be enjoyed as a wonderful family residence, a destination event
venue or bed and breakfast.

Tim and Suzanne have poured their heart and soul into restoring the house since
buying it almost 25 years ago. They began with the exterior and the grounds,
building stone walls, ponds and perennial gardens with a vision to use the beautiful
property as their own wedding destination, which they did when they were married
here in September 1996. They then built a kitchen addition, facing the ponds on the
north end of the house, and completely restored the home’s interior. They restored
the chimneys, bringing back to life three period working fireplaces, plus a brick
oven which they use for baking wood fired pizza, bread, muffins, and even the
Thanksgiving turkey.

MORE ABOUT THE HOUSE:
The house was built in 1833 by James King, using limestone quarried on the
property. It was a stagecoach stop in the 1800s. In 1869, it was acquired by the Hodges family of Corinth. Their five children attended a one-room school a short distance away. During the 1920s, Sebie Hodges operated the Singing Kettle Tea Room in the main parlor of the house. Fun Fact: Two original hand-painted tin signs, that were used to advertise the “Tea Room” to travelers, are included in the sale of the property. After raising five children in this beautiful home, the owners are looking to downsize. The home is currently for sale and listed by Select Sotheby’s International Realty, The Dona Frank Team.
