    I only included a portion of the listing photos the agent has on the listing page: http://www.1905colonialrevival.com/

    Go to that link, click the different interior/exterior/barn links, on those pages you’ll find individual room links to see more photos of each room. The level of marketing the agent has given this home should be the standard for all listings. Very well done!

    I LOVE this property! Can someone explain the pass through to the sink. At first I thought they might be doing in home urinalysis, but that didn’t make much sense. Is it for passing dishes into staff during large dinner parties?

    Dr. Hiram L. Knapp (1867-1942) was a 3rd generation country doctor whose family came to the Tioga County area 200 years ago. He and wife Minnie Cargill raised their six children here and the property passed to their youngest, Olive Katherine. The house was entered in the National Register before her death in 1999, and the owner of record is her nephew, Dr. Knapp of Newark Valley.


    We’ve seen many Colonial Revival houses of the American Foursquare type on OHD, and this one is excellent but not unique in design or detail. What makes it special is its excellent state of preservation both inside and out, and the continuity of context and ownership for over a century. This gem has been for sale for 4 years now, just waiting for someone that appreciates it.

    To Glennis: There are two little doors; one from the dining room and another between the butler’s pantry and the kitchen. I think you would pass the dirty dishes through the little door from the dining room where they could be scraped and rinsed and then into the kitchen or wash them in the pantry and put them away there. Ideal for glasses. Also various dishes of food could come from the kitchen to be placed on the pantry counter. Dessert, soup etc, could be dished up in the pantry and passed through to the dining room. I love it!

    This house is, to me, the epitome of comfort and ease. 3 sitting rooms on the main floor! The woodwork is a lovely colour.

    I grew up diagonally across the street from this house. I was in it only a few times because Miss Knapp (Olive) invited my sister and I in for a treat. It is next door to a wonderful library and the town is a nice community; a little depressed as most communities in that area became after IBM declined in the late 80’s/early 90’s. I’m glad to see not many changes have been made.

    AND, it’s next door to the library. WOW on so many things. Not sure how the property lines are laid out but the quality of care is amazing.

    Wonderfully pristine condition. It would be fun to replace the roof balustrades for a little additional ornamentation.

    We have lived a few houses from this gorgeous home for 53 years … it is gorgeous inside and out. This home is immaculate … everywhere. This family has loved and cherished this home for all of its existence. So very beautiful!

    It’s perfect AND next to a library! Isn’t that called heaven?

    This house is the first one I’ve seen where I truly would not change a thing. I’d move in as in and sigh a huge sigh of contentment and feel that I had arrived! SO livable and beautifully preserved….

    Wonderful home. It is discouraging to fall in love with some of these vintage houses, only to see the property tax payments equal that of some mortgages around the country. I wonder if there are work arounds for vintage homes to lower them at all.

    In 2007 I purchased a big old Victorian (with carriage barn) that had been in the same family since being built in 1895. There was a sense about the place of historic continuity, with so much preservation of original materials. I found pieces for repair in the big old lumber scrap pile that was left in the barn after wood was milled during construction. This house will be a huge treat for its second owner.

    I love that kitchen beyond words!

    So many things to love about this home – the foyer, the kitchen, the huge attic and that barn/garage/workshop all in amazing condition! And like Kelly said, the marketing is fantastic. Such quality pictures and many different angles etc. I have always wondered how you would get up to a widows walk!

    I’ve had my eye on this house for years now. If we ever get a job offer for a surrounding area, this is where I will live. This house is amazingly well taken care of. And I can just imagine decorating that gorgeous porch for autumn and Halloween! Love this house!
