83 acres House with Indoor Pool in Afton NY Southern Tier Region

Private Hilltop Estate with Indoor Pool in Afton NY, Broome County.

83 acres with fields, woods and a pond.

This has been the site of many fond memories for a family that lived, entertained and gathered here for over 40 years.  They would enjoy the late winter boiling of sap, from the sugar bush, in their own sap house.  The spring birth of young beef cattle and the bloom of wildflowers and apple trees.  Summer swims in the ponds and more recently in the indoor pool.  Fall harvests from the hay fields and gardens and hunting in the colorful maple and oak wood lots.  Thanksgiving feasts in the large dining room where often 30 or more people would gather while mom played the Grand Piano which is still there.  Sleigh riding and ice skating on their own ponds and hillsides.  A great home for gatherings of friends or business.

The original small home was built in the 1840s.  The house grew in the last 40 years but the original home section off the dining room has been used as a quaint 3 room guest quarters.  The home has spots of privacy and interest for all and rooms for gatherings as well.  Bonus rooms and pantries, a breakfast or dining nook, sewing or craft room with deck and exits to attractive wooded back walkways, stone walls and a small creek.  Four bedrooms and three one-half baths, a sauna, lots of storage, built-in cabinets closets and shelving.  The large master bedroom has a door leading to a circular staircase into the pool room and another exit to a deck and the glassed-in shady room used for crafts or observing nature.

Patios and decks surround the house on two levels inviting those so inclined to come out and enjoy the Land!  Go for a nature walk or a ride on your 4 wheeler.  Visit the fields and the ponds.  Raise livestock or ride horses.  Deer and turkey are seen daily and stay in the area all year.  There is cover and food for wildlife, nut and apple trees and nearby large cornfields.

A detached two car garage with a work shop, a sap house, and a long single story barn that could easily be converted to a horse barn, all add to the versatility and enjoyment of this home.

The Village of Afton is 5 minutes away.  Binghamton is 35 minutes away to the west and Oneonta is 35 minutes away to the east.  3 hours to New York City or Thousand Islands and Canada and approx. 3 1/2 hours to Philadelphia.
