Step into the charm and elegance of a bygone era in this turn-key historic village home, loaded with style and period detail. This beautiful two bedrooms, two and half bathroom home isolated on one of the quietest streets in the charming village of Delhi, NY. Decorated by renowned New York interior designer Eric Lysdahl, this home has been featured in national design magazines House Beautiful (2008) and Traditional Home (2005).
Modern convenience and luxury finishes blend with historically sensitive touches in this lovely 19th century home. Originally built as a bank in the 1830's, it was moved to its current location around 1880 and is depicted in an 1887 pictorial illustration of the village - which also hangs in the 2nd floor hall.
The parlor features a wood burning fireplace with antique Federal period mantelpiece, hardwood floors, and open staircase. Luxurious silk curtains, Stark wool carpet, and wallpaper by Colefax & Fowler of London complete this gracious entertaining room. A pair of original glass paned French doors lead into a cozy English style den, also with original hardwood flooring. Adjacent to the den is a conveniently located powder room and laundry area.
The dining room features wood wainscoting, decorative paint, French historic linen toile window treatments, 19th century Swedish chandelier, and sliding glass door that opens onto the back garden. Entertain with ease from the adjacent kitchen (recently renovated 2016) with Premier brand custom cabinets, stone countertop & backsplash, copper sink & fixtures, bead board paneled walls, and new flooring.
Ascend the gracious open staircase to a central hall with hardwood floor and bead board wainscoting which terminates into a cozy paneled porch room, sun-filled by windows on 3 sides. Perfect as a home office or private sitting room. The second floor features a sunny master bedroom with en suite bathroom and walk-in closet. Across the hall is another bedroom, also with its own bathroom. Both bedrooms feature custom made designer silk window treatments, and high end carpets.
Set on a verdant manicured lot with specimen plantings including a 100+ year old Mountain Laurel in the front, this architecturally balanced late Federal home with its imposing front porch is one of the noted gems of the village. Hand laid stone flower beds and terraced back yard await the enthusiastic weekend gardener. The house has been given a new roof in 2018, renovated kitchen in 2016, newer furnace, and updated electrical and plumbing.
