    If you’ll watch the video tour, up top, you’ll see the kitchen, more bathrooms and additional rooms. This is an awesome time capsule, hope the next owners appreciate that. 🙂

    OMG, I just died and went to inter-war Colonial Revival heaven. This place is amazing. That scenic wallpaper in the dining room must be preserved! Thanks for the tip on the video….much more delicious goodness is revealed.

    If you want a huge home in Palmyra NY, this is the place for you! What a magnificent time capsule! I recently sold a 2/1 900 sq ft home on a postage stamp lot in CA for a little less than 2.5 x the price of this place. What an incredible deal!

    Oh my!

    Soooooooooooo yummy!

    I love everything about it, particularly (of course) the gorgeous period crystal lighting fixtures, and that dreamy master bathroom. Oh, and the 2-story entry hall!

    What a stunning home. I love the kitchen with the double stove and what look to be original cabinets! Even a back stairs!

    I am wondering about the bricked up arches. Always meant to be bricked up or done later for privavcy?

    Thank you Kelly for posting the video tour as well!

      I thought it looked like bricked-up garage bays. Odd for sure.

    Fabulous! Think what it would cost today to duplicate the mill work, brick work, and other materials in this beauty. Click on the street view and go down the side street ( Foster St.) to appreciate the wall surrounding the side and back. Too bad that it is by far the best house in the neighborhood.

    Large, lovely, elegant, gracious… And the rear façade is almost as pleasing as the front, which seldom happens.

    Another library for me to swoon over and gorgeous Georgian millwork as often appears in Colonial Revivals. This is a very gracious home. I bet it’s lived a most gracious life with appropriate furnishings as well. I so hope this continues with new owners.

  13. Gwenn says: 107 comments

    This house is a gem! The thought of it being “gutted” and remodeled makes me want to weep. The bathrooms and kitchen and the staircase are wonderful. Hoping someone preservation minded will purchase and truly appreciate this home.

  14. Andria K says: 3 comments

    I’m in love! The entry! The library! The butler’s pantry! I even looked up where Palmyra, NY, is. That price is spectaclular — you can’t even buy a one bedroom condo here in San Francisco for that amount. I do hope it get new owners who will appreciate what a gem it is…

    I. Want. This. House!

  16. Bryan Berg says: 17 comments

    This is usually not my cup of tea, but this one has me. I also like to imagine the life this house has had. I imagine the ladies in the parlor and the gents smoking in the library. Everybody all dressed up. Business deals…… I imagine a 40’s aged couple building this house and it not changing hands for the first time until perhaps the 1960’s. Were they from old money? Self made? Scandal or peace? In any case, I hope someone with some taste gets this house and realizes that this house is already full of class. Wow!

    A real old house dream. Gorgeous. Fantastic. I love every milimeter of it!! What a dream!!

  18. Georgia Girl says: 53 comments

    I am speechless and that never happens. Such a beautiful home. I’m in awe.

  19. zoomey says: 437 comments

    Property taxes are $11k. If not for that…. I’d buy this house in a second and wouldn’t change anything. Not one thing. Love it all.

  20. Bryan Berg says: 17 comments

    And one more thing: it’s easy when you look at this house to forget that you’re looking at a 1920’s house, because the drapes and some of the features look like colonial revival tricks from the 50’s and 60’s. And the look of the paint also feels like the 50’s or 60’s. But no. Look again, and remind yourself that this is a house from the TWENTIES. Just ten years earlier and you’d have been at the end of Victorian times (US). Think about what cars and dress from the twenties looked like. And did the Great Depression ruin these people or did they survive. Did the hired help have to leave during those hard times or did they find refuge there with the wealthy owners. The place is deep in every way.

      Love your scenario Bryan…..one cannot help imagine the life of this house that once was….especially viewing the video.

    Love all those arches and that master bath! And the artwork/wallpaper (?) The view through the arches to the stairs is amazing. I would definitely keep this house as it is. We live in NY. I will find Palmyra…

    So happy to join this community! I have been enjoying reading for a while and I really enjoy the comments. Such a nice group of old home enthusiasts!

        I am from this very quaint little town and the history of the area includes so much from where the Mormon religion originated, to being very active in the underground railroad, and I can only imagine the secrets this home holds. As a child who rode the school bus past this house twice a day, every day, it’s what dreams were and continue to be made of. I can say without a doubt, this is the first time I’ve ever seen the interior and am just as enamored with it now as I was then. Forever home goals for sure!

    1910 Colonial Revival

    Wow,wow,wow…from the exterior, appears to be a typical center hall colonial…..but once inside, surprise…definitely not! Did you catch what looks like a walk in silver safe in the butler’s pantry?

  24. Warbon says: 115 comments

    What a beautiful house. So lovingly taken care of, too. I loved all the murals on the walls I agree with everyone else on “renovations”. My advise: If it isn’t broke, don’t try to fix it!

  25. Lin says: 52 comments

    Beautiful home !! Not far from the town I grew up in !! Its too bad the taxs in NY are so high , that is why I left and now live in Fl a no tax state. I wonder what this home was used for ?? Do you know Kelly ??

  26. Clay says: 24 comments

    The murals, even the one in the bathroom, are fantastic! Because it adhered to classic traditions, this house is timeless.

  27. Rebecca Campbell says: 27 comments

    I love, love, love the room with all the built in book shelves. The house next door to us recently sold and the first thing the new owners did was rip out all the book shelves. I thought I have a heart attack!

  28. MISTERMICELY says: 47 comments

    The things that I would change: fresh paint, carpets removed or replaced, curtains. I would not be even tempted to change anything else; who changes perfection? Oh, and I would look for some early 20th century Georgian reproductions and mix liberally with 18th century antiques. My 1920’s lamps would grace this beauty to perfection. I have dreamed of this house. I guess that covers it. DID YOU SEE THE PANTRY AND BACK STAIRCASE?! THE VINTAGE BATHROOMS?! Some of those bricked in arches might have been meant to hold classical statuary and Chippendale style benches.

  29. Doreen says: 192 comments

    The murals going up the staircase(s) look like Palatine Hill in Rome (by the Colosseum), and have the look of something that was replicated in the style used during the Grand Tour era. That right there was worth the price of admission for me! LOL! ♥

  30. DeniseLynn says: 174 comments

    Well, this is it! The perfect house! The grand foyer, the staircase, the murals, the trimwork, the custom curtains, the bathrooms, the library! Every room graciously proportioned! And in the video tour, the courtyard and garden layout! I’m so in love! I can’t help imagining the parties this house has hosted through the years.

    Yes Cathy, and it led me to believe the arches were purely to give a privacy wall dimension and interest……much nicer than without.

    I spy a Sherle Wagner faucet in the Chinoiserie bath!

    I lived in Palmyra from ’99-’03, I drove and walked by this house EVERY DAY. Wanted it then, still want it now. I used to dream of living in this home. Absolutely gorgeous! Plus, if you like haunted areas….Palmyra IS THE place for you. Lots of history in that town.
