This home, referred to in the history books as “Orchard Place,” has had a prominent past. The legacy continues, as the home was impeccably renovated and modernized in 2014-2015, while maintaining its historic significance and charm. Meticulous attention to detail was incorporated and no expense spared in the extensive renewal, which brought the home down to its studs to upgrade it completely to enhance the home with quality and efficiency. Today, the home’s distinctive features ensure enrichment and comfort with the new electric, plumbing, heating and cooling systems, insulation, extensive hot water system, windows, doors, roof, siding, and wiring for high speed Internet and cable in every room.
The home was originally the estate of Seth H. White, a prominent Delhi pioneer and direct descendant of an ancestor born on the Mayflower. White was involved not only in the founding of the village itself, but also with a successful law practice, the first real estate agency in the area, assisted his community extensively with service on numerous local boards, founded the Railroad Bank of 1872, and was involved in projects such as bringing a railway into Delhi. Today Delhi, only about 3 hours from the NY metropolitan area, exhibits a vibrant community, boasting numerous thriving businesses. Did you know the Super Bowl goalposts for the past several years were manufactured right here in Delhi? The nearby parks, hiking trails, and access to the Delaware River provide an abundance of outdoor recreational activities, and the village is home to several unique shops and restaurants, a Farmers’ Market, several festivals throughout the year, and the State University of New York, which is continuously emitting news of its successful and award-winning programs. Should you decide an opportunity in hospitality is your forte, the home provides an ideal potential to establish a Bed & Breakfast. Each individual bedroom possesses its own private bathroom and the first floor is established with a private area to serve as an owners’ suite containing a spacious bedroom, full bathroom, closets, and laundry area.
The light-filled home offers an exquisite kitchen with top-of-the-line stainless steel appliances, including a gas range, shimmering quartz counters, custom cabinetry, center island with breakfast bar, pantry, and striking tile backsplash. This is open to the luxurious formal dining room. French doors lead you out to the stamped concrete patio, which extends from the covered porch to provide an area for entertaining in the great outdoors. Back inside, the living room provides a warm and inviting space for gathering. A handsome office/study is found through another French door and a half bathroom rounds out the main level. In the center entry hall, the elegant original staircase curves gracefully up to the second floor where you’ll find charm in the original heart of pine floors. The three additional bedroom en-suites include a grand master suite with its considerable closet space and deluxe spa-like bathroom.
Outside this stately Colonial home, you can enjoy the view of the mountains and watch the sunrise from the front porch. Utilize the large carriage barn for storage, studio, or workshop and enjoy the small orchard of apple trees in the backyard (it is Orchard Street, after all!).
