Historic 1850s Greek Revival Home with Pool


Belfast, NY   Offered for sale at $249,900
 

The property offers 2,167 square ft. of living space inside the main house and boasts 5 bedrooms and 2 and a half baths to offer more than enough space for a large family to reside.  This very special and unique-for-the-area home could also be seamlessly transformed by an enterprising group into a Bed & Breakfast or an Airbnb investment property. The first floor features a front hall foyer, large living room, formal dining room, den, and kitchen. The spacious eat-in kitchen has elegant cherry cabinetry, a breakfast bar and a central island. The gorgeous living room has a large brick fireplace with a recently installed (removable, if desired) gas insert that makes this room a cozy place to gather around.  The formal dining room is generously sized, features an original fireplace, and is perfect for entertaining a large number of guests. Next to the dining room there is a cozy den where you could have an office or just a quiet place to sit and read. The lighter, off-toned carpet colors adjacent to tastefully chosen wall treatments and curtains, along with natural brick and historic accents makes this home feel so elegant. The second floor can be reached by two sets of stairs. You will find a generous master bedroom that features a walk-in cedar closet plus an additional nice closet, a built-in bookshelf, and an original façade from a fireplace that once heated the home.  The primary bathroom contains a jacuzzi tub, standup shower and a spacious cherry wood vanity and cabinetry. Four additional bedrooms (including one child-sized bedroom) branch off from the upstairs walkway. One of the four contains a full bath and is privately tucked away in the layout, making a perfect (overly accommodable) guest suite. Behind the home hides a backyard paradise of greenery and perennials with a custom heated in-ground pool, a pool house and a large gardening shed, a two-tier wraparound porch and a detached garage/barn. The sizeable deck can be split into two sections; one for grilling and soaking up sun while the other accommodates for lounging or extra dining space with built in benches and a charming pergola to provide shade. A small yard sits in-between the fenced-in pool and driveway offering more room for activities. Truly a perfect spot for summertime or autumn parties. It’s close walking distance to the local school, to downtown and to the Internationally known Bare Knuckle Boxing Museum and Hall of Fame, a short drive to Rushford Lake, just 7 miles from Houghton College, a half-hour from Alfred University or Jones Memorial Hospital in Wellsville, and 20 minutes from Cuba Memorial Hospital.  The region itself is a paradise for outdoor enthusiasts, including the spectacular Letchworth State Park, just 20 miles away.
