    That’s a “Welcome Home” house.

    So serene. This is going in favorites.

    I’d rip out the carpet and see if there’s more hardwood under it. Why do people insist on covering old hardwood floors? Gut the kitchen, and I think I’d do some research on period specific colors. Otherwise, this looks like a grand old house! It’s also so nice to see it’s got acreage with it. Too often, a large house that you just know once had substantial land attached to it, has seen that land sold off and eventually divided by a developer. I wonder if the horse comes with the house?

      There are some in this world that enjoys the warmth of carpeting especially during super cold winters.

      I agree. The carpet should go and the kitchen gutted, but I love the house !

        I like the kitchen. But I’m weird like that. I don’t think every kitchen needs to look a) original to the build date of the house or b) updated to modern ideals. If I bought this house I wouldn’t change the basics of the kitchen, just personalize it.

    AND…I think that bed is identical to mine! Only mine is in a light maple. I have the dresser and armoire to match, also. I got it at ValuCity years ago, telling myself that one day when I could afford it, I’d buy a set at Ethan Allen. But I love this set still, and it’s held up very well.

    Is this house being sold by the Butler family? Maybe you can’t say. But I may have stayed here once 40 odd years ago! If this is that house, it IS a wonderful home and property.

    I grew up in Ithaca-I love this place! I’d move back in a heartbeat if I had a decent job up there.Property taxes are steep if you own, tho.

    Fine farm house with numerous extant Federal details, along some nice property attached as well. What’s not to like?

    Fabulous farmhouse & those floors—Wow! Those views are absolutely pastoral!

    1818–if those walls could talk—eh?

    Yes Kelly— carpet is nice during super cold winters! I prefer area rugs myself on hardwoods, but to each his own I suppose.

    Joseph Judson (1782-1862) came from Connecticut as one of the early settlers at Danby before 1800, and was the first teacher at the local school. He purchased his farm in 1805 and built a mill on Jennings Pond. Joseph’s property was passed to his sons Elbert and Stockton, and remained in the family until the 20th Century.
    This New England vernacular house form is known as Upright and Wing, here with Federal details. In later houses, the same form took on Greek Revival details and is sometimes called Temple and Wing.
