    What a fantastic home and in a beautiful spot. I think I saw overgrown perennial gardens too.

    • Cathy says: 2194 comments

      Yep, I see those gardens, too. Very pretty exterior. And more fencing – white pickets – across the street. Pretty, hilly countryside, too. Although Guilford is pretty much out in the boonies…

    Ebenezer Smith Stebbins (1820-1882) came to central New York from Massachusetts in the 1840’s as the youngest child in his family. E.S. worked the family farm as a young man, then trained as an attorney. He purchased this house about 1850, likely already built at the time. It was valued at $700 in 1855, a modest amount which suggests the house was expanded after that date.

    I love the facade also with the iron fence and garden. Although screened by trees, the Main St. side is interesting, with a stone gate, more fence, and an octagon house next door. https://goo.gl/maps/VSpY2wroAuv

    Chenango County has so many fine mid 19th century homes in little places like this, for the most part undocumented.

      Gotta love a house lived in by an Ebenezer. 🙂

      Such a bargain! The grounds and the house could be spectacular with a little love.

    Wow. That’s a LOT of house for very little money! This could easily be cleaned up to be a dream home. I even love the 1930s bath fittings! Wide plank floors, fireplaces, lots of good stuff!

    I am in love with this house and the grounds…

    A new “love” for me is the floor to ceiling windows. Like the street view on this as well, house is keeping good company with the rest of the area. Sweet house.

    Looking at the Trulia site’s breakdown of the mortgage, it appears the property taxes are $159/mo….am I reading that correctly?

    I was first sold by the pilasters repeating the column capitals across the fascia. It’s just so darned attractive outside & offers so much inside. I wonder how long it has been empty — and worry about its continuing that way. I’d go anywhere, boonies or megalopalis, for this house.

  10. I love the Russian nesting doll aspect of this house. Everything about this property is appeals to me.

  11. Dano says: 15 comments

    Since the stone gate is on that side I wonder if that was the original front? I would love to see that ide covered by trees.Anyone find one please add it.

  12. tess says: 312 comments

    Looking from the neighbor’s side behind the trees is very interesting. There’s a little portico and a large, arched door(?)

    Have to love a wrought iron fence. This is a lovely property just waiting to be loved.

    I used to mow the lawn at this home when I was in high school at Guilford Central School. Mr. And Mrs. Dexheimer were wonderful people. I also mowed their son (John) lawn also. Mr Dexheimer had a beautiful 1957 three toned Cadillac, which I thought was beautiful.

    I fell in love with this at first site… such presents, and yes, it does telescope very nicely indeed. I would take this one in a second, but the taxes are just too high. I pay $700 a year, so $459 a month (and likely rising) taxes seem astronomical. But how beautiful is this house? I would change very little, really… improve some floors, spiff up the kitchen (but I LOVE LOVE LOVE the builtin wall in there!) and whatever structural systems improvements need to be made, but it’s certainly in a livable state. The roof looks pretty good to my novice eye, but I wonder about the rest, plumbing, wiring, etc. Still, a great house at a terrific price.

    Beautiful big 9 bedroom home! I love the telescoping effect
    and the beautiful yard! Is the price so low because this is a foreclosure?

  17. Lin says: 5 comments

    I love every thing about the house but I Don’t like N.Y.Taxs !! I would take the house in a heart beat pick up the land it sits on and move to PA

  18. Cathy says: 2194 comments

    The trade-off in upstate (really upstate, not down in mid-lower Hudson Valley) NYS re: the relatively high taxes are the relatively low housing prices & cost of living. (I pay about $3500 total/year in city, county, & school taxes – which is pretty good, for a 1920 three BR house; I bought it for $50K in late ’86.)

    One of my favorites. You just can’t manufacture this type of character with new construction…no matter how talented your architect. the pilasters on the left side are a great touch.

    The inside looks very airy; the dining room appears to have two exposures, which is always a plus in any room.

    all that iron fencing all around large property is worth the price alone

  21. Hahna White says: 1 comments

    so with all this praise for this
    charming home. is it even
    available ???

  22. Michael Wilhelm says: 2 comments

    I’m sure (know) You couldn’t have that fence installed in Portland, Or. for what the asking price for the whole place is. And taxes? I pay $6K+ for 3400 sq ft here.

      I sent the realtor an email today for more info. At that price I could use it as a country home and work out my inner “this old house” fantasies. It’s a little far from NYC, but at that price, my gosh.

    That overgrown perennial garden with the Day Lilies is calling my name. One of the things I love the most about old homes is the property that surrounds them. It is like a treasure hunt to find all the gold that is still there.

  25. MW says: 841 comments

    Looks like a lot of charm or only $59K. And as Ross noted, that fence has a lot to do with it, lovely. Looks like it goes all the way around the property too, a lot of linear feet of it.

    There is also a sort of sad looking octagon house next door on the main street. Appears to be an old one, but has had some less than appealing work done to it over the years.

    I wish I could see the basement! Is it wired already for all necessities as electricity? How about plumbing, water, gas? Condition on roof? Is the County recording fee for the Grant Deed included in this fee if payed full in cash. Thanks!
