Map: Street











A fine example of Gothic Revival architecture, this home was constructed 1830-1850 and has had major renovations in the past 20+/- years which has added to the comfort but not taken from the charm. This home is distinguished by the carved barge boards in the gables and board & batten siding, the front & side porches and the mixture of roof styles. Hardwood floors throughout. SS appliances and granite counter/island in the kitchen. Cathedral ceiling in the LR with walk outs to deck and side porch. Formal dining area as well as kitchen breakfast rm. Family room/3rd BR/full bath, office w/built-ins & laundry on 1st flr. Detached, rebuilt barn/garage with loft. Central village location - convenient to downtown, schools, & recreation. Lovely corner lot, sun & shade.

    I’d fancy up the later back kitchen/sitting room addition, mimic the original trim like the living room has but other than that, wouldn’t do much more. The exterior details are great, I’ve added this one to my own favorite list. 🙂

      Plus, Hamilton is a rather nice town, home to Colgate University. Then slightly north of it is another nice village w. a village green – Clinton, home to Hamilton College.

    Great house but I would re-paint the exterior with something bright and colourul.

    Somebody did a lot of exterior restoration, which looks great and relatively authentic. There are quite a few Gothic Revivals in the central region of New York because of a period of growth 1840-1860. This one may have originally been a Greek Revival house if the 1830 date is correct. Another example down the street:

    My take on the exterior paint choice is while whether the color choices are historically correct or not, I do not know, but I feel they elevate the architectural details in a respectively reserved way. I am rather taken by this house.

    OMGosh! I totally love this home and would move in in a minute! It’s light, refreshing, charming. It may not be in keeping with the period, but if I could I’d add window boxes to the lower windows. The property needs a bit of landscaping but that’s all I see.

    Cate my only addition would be flower boxes as well. Kelly I also added this one to my many favorites!
