Description for 505 Pomeroy Road, Franklin, NY 13775
RESTORED 1840S STONE HOUSE ON 40 ACS: If you are searching for a unique historical home, on a private and pastoral setting, this is the one for you! With more than 2700 sq ft of tastefully restored space, this charming home embraces the best of two worlds--the feeling of antiquity-- with all the conveniences of modern living! From the time you step up on to the front porch, complete with a two-seater porch swing, and enter the large, comfortable country kitchen with marble topped center island, soapstone counters, cherry cabinets, yet updated with a professional quality Viking stove, Bosch Dishwasher and recessed KitchenAid refrigerator, you know you are at a special place. The farm sink is a beauty, the second service sink in the center island is a convenience, as is a large attached pantry. Move along into the formal dining room with built in hutch and shelving, then continue into the ample living room with a working fireplace with antique, decorative mantle. Check out the window wells--featuring 2 ft thick walls! This floor is fully appointed with the original chestnut floorboards, except for the kitchen which is slate tile. The first floor also offers a tiled and wainscoted full bath, as well as access to the attached 2-story storage barn and a back staircase. Meanwhile, climb the main staircase upstairs from the living room to find a Master Suite with 2 rooms (or could be 2 separate bedrooms) w/full tiled bath and two more large bedrooms as well as another full tiled bathroom. Again a note on the important details--the heat is radiant hot water, with six zone heating, and, while it runs off a furnace in the basement, it can also be run off an outdoor wood furnace in the yard. Besides the house, there is a 2-car garage, a large dairy barn and a second carriage barn--the barns are all newly roofed and in nice condition. Besides the panoramic, pastoral views from the house, the 40 acres of property also contains a year round stream and a couple of potential pond sites. To finish off this description, let me add that, while having a decidedly rural setting, this property is conveniently located near two college towns, having a total of three colleges, has excellent access to healthcare and all the amenities of a small but livable city. What more could you ask for? Hmm...just one more thing--a little bit of romance! Notice the unusual tree through which you walk to the front door--that is the Wedding Tree--two trees that were spliced together long ago when the house was given as a home to a newly married couple--signifying a long happy life together! That's it, I'm done!
