Looking for a spacious home? Something that is ready to move right into, beautifully renovated with modern updates while retaining historic charm? How about a large yard with some privacy, with a location that is convenient to amenities as well as outdoor recreational opportunities? Need options to work from home with high-speed Internet available? Have it all here with this incredible Victorian home.
Originally part of the village’s historic Granthurst Park community, this home was built in the late 1800s during Stamford’s “Queen of the Catskills” resort era. Today, this home has been lovingly renovated with attention and care given to every detail with new architectural shingle roof, electric, windows, siding, insulation, water heater, and economically-minded wood pellet heating system.
Be welcomed into the home’s front entryway featuring the charming staircase and plenty of room to hang your coats. You are then immediately greeted by the heart of the home – the gorgeous kitchen, where you’ll delight to spend time cooking and gathering with your family. The room is spacious, bright, and cheery with original tongue-and-groove wood floors, attractive cabinets, butcher block counters and an eating area. Or share meals in the spacious formal dining room cozy beside the pellet stove. An original stained-glass door welcomes you into the large living room with its gleaming Maple floors. The back room makes a great space for an office, gym, library, or first floor bedroom. Also on the main level is a full bathroom with laundry and a large pantry, which had been the home’s original kitchen, retaining the vintage built-in cupboards. This room also provides direct access out to the back porch – a great spot to enjoy a BBQ or dine alfresco. Need more room? The huge covered front porch provides plenty of space to relax and to enjoy the fresh mountain air or have yourself a party! Generations of families have made memories celebrating in this space.
Back inside, two additional levels of living space provide room for everyone. The second floor features a generous primary bedroom suite with walk-in closet and its own private bathroom, three additional bedrooms, and another full bathroom with original clawfoot bathtub. You’ll love spending time in the heated sunroom overlooking the backyard. Two additional rooms and storage space complete the third level. Ascend the staircase one more level to find yourself in your very own tower! This sweet space, with great views, makes a great spot for an office or reading nook.
Outside, the yard is large with a generous open area as well as a lot of woods to explore. Use the barn for storage, workshop, studio, or business. This property offers an excellent opportunity to be used as a full-time home or weekend retreat. Spend your summers in the sunny yard catching up with friends and family. Try out your golf game with the Stamford course just minutes away or go hiking on numerous nearby trails.
