"Braeburn Farm" A Cooperstown treasure. The builder of this house searched in vain for a country farmhouse close to Cooperstown Village. When he couldn't find what he wanted he had this incredible home built to exacting specifications. Set on almost 14 picturesque acres in the Pierstown district of Cooperstowm this home was truly a labor of love. The exterior profile says historic home while the interior is designed for todays lifestyle. There are none of the dark small rooms you encounter in historic homes, here there are bright spaces flooded with natural light. The main floor has an open concept Kitchen, Living and Dining room so saught after today.There are beautiful figured Cherry counters and custom shaker style cabinetry. Glowing reclaimed wide pine floors and refinished 19th century doors create the impression of a period home somehow designed for modern living. The central chimney has a Vermont Castings woodstove for cozy winter days. A spacious entry/mud room boasts a custom refrigerated bar, flower sink and large walk in pantry. With a full tiled bath, this space seperates the Kitchen/Living/Dining Room from a cozy study/media room easily reinterperted as a first floor bedroom.Upstairs are three spacious bedrooms each with ample closet space. A large hall has room for an Office and Lounge. These three bedrooms share another custom tiled bath. A large linen closet provides ample storage.
The full basememt has radient heat as does the first floor. The second floor is heated with reclaimed and refinished cast iron raidators. There is also a laundry and darkroom in the basement. Outside is a large two story barn/garage, another historically accurate recreation. the first floor has parking for one or two cars and equipment storage, upstairs is a large three season rec. room.
This is a charming family home in Cooperstown's most desireable residental area. No expense was spared in the construction of this house now just twenty years old. Braeburn Farm has had only two owners who used the property for summers only so it has seen very light use.
