    Lovely house. It is a shame the view is so bad….

    Nice! And garage and an old barn! Again, why no shots of the barn or garage!! Why do realtors assume no one cares what the barns look like inside? Who doesn’t want to see inside the barns? Am I the only one who cares about that? Man that is annoying, all too common.

    Schoharie is one of those places that really celebrates its long history, but the old buildings don’t always get the love and maintenance they deserve. The house here has a great story and is in much better shape than it was a few years back – a professional couple spent years restoring the place. Sadly, both died recently and the property is being sold by their daughter.
    “John Poorman and his wife, Roberta (Bobby) moved to Schoharie in 2000 after purchasing the historic Swarts Tavern where John worked to restore the home and property to a more historically authentic presentation of a pre-revolutionary farmstead. Their home was one of several homes featured on a showing of historical homes in the area in the Schoharie Colonial Heritage Drive About on 2 occasions.”

    I thought the animal looked like a sheep that had been sheared(?) of it’s wool. It almost looks velvety.

    Can anyone explain photo 17? Looks like a gate over a storage cabinet? Not sure if it’s the back side of a stair case, or hall? I’m just curious. The bottom of the “stair rail” looks to have a little eye-hook hanging. Does anyone know what this area of the home is or what it might be used for? Otherwise, this is just another absolutely beautiful home on a wonderful setting. I love the views. The property looks to be on a quiet country road and has a nice split rail fence in front with a little league park down the road. Seems so peaceful!

    City Folks :->…..’oldbeauty’ is correct – the animal is a just shorn sheep.

    Okay, maybe I just haven’t had enough coffee but I don’t understand the second picture with the porch and wood frame ‘house’. How does it relate??

    Schoharie was very hard hit by hurricanes/tropical storms Irene and Lee. Much of the area has recovered and much is still recovering. Wonderful to see that such a beautiful house survived intact.

    I think the price is not bad considering it’s in New York State and how nice the restoration is. It’s still out of my price range but when you consider how much a cookie cutter house with no charm can cost, I think it’s a fair price! I’d love to own it! A person can dream…

    Wow. Those floors and that view would be worth painting all of those kitchen cabinets.
