Storybook Victorian on the outskirts of Stamford, Queen of the Catskills, New York. Part of the Granthurst Park subdivision this charming home harkens back to Stamfords bustling resort era (1870-1945). Part of an enclave of turn of the 20th century homes all built in a fanciful combination of Victorian and Arts & Crafts architecture. Several of these fine home still exist and are part of Stamfords fascinating history. This cottage has twin turrets and an onion domed bay window, sweeping asymmetrical roof line and a large stone verandah. Inside a stone inglenook fireplace dominates the living room and three levels provide plenty of space for part or full time living. Quirky is the best word to describe the lay out of this house with its winding stair case and wainscotted attic rooms. The kitchen is a time capsule 1950's re-do with all original C. 1955 GE cabinets and counters. Other rooms have been similarly updated creating a Victorian meets mid-century vibe. Basement has a walk out door and is handy for garden equipment storage. The deep lawn is shaded by a grand Red Oak and lined with Hemlocks and Lilacs. Close enough to the village and Adirondack Trailways stop to walk and set among other historic and modern homes.
