  1. Thanks Jennifer HT for sharing in last weeks link exchange and thanks to the agent for letting us take a peek!

    Check out the street view to see some before street views (as you can see from the before, it lost the original windows long ago.)

    • WOW, WoW, Wow. I have tremendous respect for the finished product now considering the before! Yes it could have ended up more period authentic; but who cares. Even though we cant see the interior before, I’d bet a nickel it was just as classy as the exterior as we see it here. = D’oh!

      Still loving the English basement, kitchen hearth room / come family room! The barn wood ceiling and walls with custom built-ins together with the antique brick floors; original stone walls; later antique doors; and even the distressed gray painted fireplace create a BRILLIANTLY warm, uber comfy space which is brand new, but very impressively embraces the antique nature of the house. Now even more impressive considering it may have been designed with a mind to flip. Very nice + super smart.

      • I agree, I usually find basements creepy but not this one!
        Maybe it’s the windows letting in more light or just the warm decor. I could curl up with a book down there and never leave.

  2. Thanks for sharing this home. I knew I was posting something with a few too many updates for some of the purists here, but I felt like it was worth it. So much to love.

  3. I’d like to echo my congratulations on a job well done! Moreover, the setting is gorgeous! If it had garage space I’d be on the phone!

  4. For many years this was the residence of Albert Gallatin Bagg (1813-1875), a farmer who ran a cheese factory up the road on the stream. Bagg held a patent for an improved commercial cheese press.
    Baggs’ father Abner Bagg came to the area from Massachusetts before 1800 and had a large family, though I’m not sure that the house is from that period. The Greek Revival trim is from 1825 or after. The thick exterior walls suggest a stone house with a later stucco finish. Lovely house and setting.

    • Albert was my great, great grandfather. We’ve been looking for this house and the site of the cheese factory for years!

  5. This is one of my favourite posts so far! I have totally fallen in love with this home! I wouldn’t be able to part with it if I owned it

  6. I love the exterior colors. And the tavern in the basement is so unique. They’re very expensive but it would have been more historically appropriate to put in 12 over 12 windows. Still, the renovation is beautiful. Can’t believe the price!!

  7. What an awesome home! I think all the renovations are done well and it still has some of the old charm left. The stone wall outside is just perfect! Thank you for sharing!

  8. Out standing job on the whole house. It’s hard to pick my favorite part but it’s a toss up between the family room in the basement and the kitchen!

  9. Thanks everyone for the love you are giving this old house. There wasn’t much to save inside. The house has been neglected for years. Hopefully it will find a new owner. I have a beautiful stone home across the corn field.I will miss that Tavern room.

    • Albert was my great, great grandfather. We’ve been looking for this house and the site of the cheese factory for years! Do you if any artifacts or personal effects were saved from the attic, basement or elsewhere??

      • Hi. The house was in bad shape. Nothing found except two horse shoes. I mounted one down in the tavern for the new owners. I purchased them that 1874 county map. It’s list yourfamilies name.I live at the old Hall farm. The other nearby stone house. Stop by. The local preservation society has a file on the home. I have a postcard from 1907

  10. I’d take this in a minute, so long as someone else covered the taxes (the usual problem with New York state properties) – $101K!
