One of Cooperstown most important historic homes. The Averill Cottage, C. 1793, is a 6000 square foot estate on two and one quarter acres in the center of the Village. Spacious and full of historic details with five fireplaces, five bedrooms, a guest suite with kitchenette sitting room and bedroom, wide board floors, hand hewn beams, front and back stairs, porches and patios with incredible lake views. Sweeping lawns lead from the house directly to the shore of Lake Otsego with panoramic vistas north to Mount Wellington.
Once home to the Averill family and part of the original Cooper lands this historic treasure has been continuously updated and improved while preserving its many historic details. Most recently a large family kitchen, pantry and two car garage was added to the west side of the house. This large addition adds an air of spaciousness and blends seamlessly into the 1820 core of the building. Four family bedrooms, two with en suite baths are up and another guest suite with sitting room, fireplace, kitchenette and bath are just off of the front hall. The living room and dining room create a large entertaining space with access to a patio, covered porch and gazebo.
Within walking distance to all village amenities and entertainments this is a tremendous opportunity for someone requiring a large family home with lakefront as well as a piece of Cooperstown’s history.
