    A sweet little Italianate! Love the area too. It’s gorgeous in the fall. My daughter goes to Ithaca college which is nearby. So many fantastic things to do in beautiful Upstate New York. So in love with the staircase which is my favorite thing in an older house or any house for that matter. Too bad I live in a 1965 ranch.

    This was the residence of David Jerome Robinson Jr. (1837-1914), a carpenter and land speculator. Robinson purchased the property in 1868 for $1150 and most likely built the house himself at that time. He lived here with his wife Harriet Manley and their 4 children until they moved to Chicago in the late 1880’s.

    The carriage barn appears original to the house, which retains much of its detail despite substantial updates. The classic Italianate winding stair is the highlight!

    This barn is a classic beauty and has so much potential to be restored.
    The doors with the diagonal bead board! My favorite.

    I grew up here. My mom still lives in a Victorian in a neighboring town in Cortland County that, to the of our research, was built in the 1860s. The basement was still a dirt floor when she bought it. Port Watson crosses Main Street and becomes Tompkins Ave. The houses on Tompkins are AMAZING, but have mostly become Greek houses and student housing. Check out this house on Tompkins http://the1890house.org. Cortland has/had a charming downtown. Like most of central New York it has gone through a long economic depression. Smith Corona left in the early 1990s as well as other industries. I am saddened everytime I go home as the area seems to have declined a little bit more each time.
