    Where are all the fireplaces?

    Paired gable-end chimneys on both ends of the main block and only one FP in the entire slideshow?

      I think those are decorations not chimneys. The only chimney I see is the first add-on building behind the red brick big part. Maybe thats the original kitchen. WHAT I do see is a lot of buildings and property for the money! Wow! I’d need my whole family to move with me so we can fill up the space and work the farm.

        There is absolutely no doubt that these are chimneys on the stepped gable ends; they are not decorations. The construction is very typical of the style and period. Any house like this in 1820 would certainly have fireplaces in the main rooms and I share Donald’s puzzlement.

        The chimney flues clearly snake around the second story windows to meet up near the center of each end wall (darkened brick reveals the flue path). The rooms likely once had corner fireplaces (or at least fireplaces which were not centered in the rooms). They were likely removed long ago. This would explain the off-centered window on the end wall of the living room.

        It’s a fantastic house as-is, but the absence of fireplaces does stand out.

          I wonder if someone took the fireplaces out, or just took off the mantles and covered over the fireplaces. I’d take a tap hammer to see if each room has some hollow sounding spaces in the walls.

          In the fourth from last photo, the view from above seems to show that – if they were chimneys, which they seem to have been – at least three of them are no longer open at the top…?

    I wonder if the mantles of several fireplaces were bricked over and plastered — there are large pieces of furniture large enough to cover those areas. Baffling to me —house of that era were heated by fireplaces —essential in the winter. When heat was by other means perhaps a “modernizer” decided fireplaces had to go?

      I think the “modernizer” placed faux fireplace chimneys at either end. The windows are in line of where the fireplaces should be. I can’t imagine moving the brick around to accommodate the symmetry of the upstairs windows after fireplaces were removed. Maybe they used cast iron stoves throughout, and vented thru the faux stacks? Its a mystery for sure…

    Lovely house between Cambridge and Hoosic Falls. Nicely kept house with barn and other out buildings. Halfway to Saratoga Springs and Williamstown/North Adams. I hope it finds a special owner.

      It’s a lovely area, close to Bennington VT as well, and the Revolutionary battle was actually fought nearby in the state of New York. Hoosick Falls always reminds me of Grandma Moses!

    What a beautiful place. Someone in the past really loved this home as they have slate roofs on the house and most of the barns and sheds, not cheap even in the day it was built! I especially love the tin claw foot tub! I hope it is still in working condition. It’s nice to see all the hardwood floors, even with it’s imperfections. It just reflects how this wonderful home evolved over time!

    This impressive house and farm were built for David Gooding (1770-1846), who moved to Hoosick with wife Mehitable Chase and their 13 children in 1817. Gooding accumulated a large estate, buying property until the year of his death, and leaving large farms to each of his 5 sons. His daughters received cash for themselves “independent of any husbands”. Mehitable received $200 yearly, plus use of the house and contents, “a good and kind horse” and two cows with pasture, fodder and care, a wagon and sleigh, ample firewood “cut for the stove or fireplace and stacked in the woodshed”, also generous annual provisions of food including pork and cured hams, good potatoes, wheat flour (800 lbs!) and corn, all delivered in season and placed in the cellar. Unmarried daughter Mahala was to stay with her mother and “enjoy all the privileges and benefits of home”.
    The home eventually passed to grandson Nicholas D. Gooding and stayed in the family into the 20th century.
