Picture yourself at The South Street Homestead just 1 mile from the village, loving life in a sun-drenched 4-bedroom, 4 & 1/2 bath home. Thoughtful renovations have resulted in an irresistible blend of historic elements—such as a wood burning fireplace, period molding and the home’s original 2-story “chicken house”—and present-day amenities, including a basketball court, new kitchen appliances, soapstone countertops, a heated 3 car garage, wireless ADT security system, and central air. Generously proportioned, freshly painted rooms throughout are just waiting for personal touches. A wrap-around front porch overlooks a stocked stream fed pond with commercial grade aeration, a screened-in porch to enjoy dinner while watching the sun disappear behind your 13-acre backyard, and a cedar enclosed vegetable garden make fresh-air time second nature. Recent practical updates include new HVAC, flooring, split box heat and air-conditioning, temperature sensitive attic fan, boiler, and spray-foam insulation. Copious privacy plantings and perennials create a secluded vibe, yet Hamilton College, restaurants in the village, Kirkland Town Park, biking trails and other attractions are right nearby.
