Renovated Farmhouse on 42 acres with Pond in Freeville NY 393 Groton Road


Renovated farmhouse with modern updates on 42 acres near Ithaca NY and Cornell University.

Charming 1860s farmhouse that has been completely renovated with over 30 years of hard work.  This home has a lot to offer for a homesteader or someone who is concerned with saving energy and enjoying the charismatic charm of an 1800s style farmhouse.  The house has 1,604 sq. ft, 3 bedrooms, and 2 full baths.  Both bathrooms have been recently updated, as well as the updated Quartz countertops in the kitchen and energy star appliances.  All the windows where replaced with Anderson Low E windows.  The kitchenette area has some of the original chestnut hardwood floors and the living/dining area has real oak hardwood floors.  The kitchen has been completely remodeled and has oak hardwood floors, custom built cabinets, energy star dishwasher and appliances with two kitchen sinks.  At the end of the kitchen there is a door that leads to a back room for firewood storage and dried goods.  On the back side of the kitchen there is a sliding glass door that leads out to a generous sized deck that overlooks the property and the pond.  The deck is a nice hidden private area that faces directly east to catch the morning sun that rises over the horizon.  There are several custom solid oak built-in bookshelves and cabinets throughout the home.  On the second floor there are 3 bedrooms with 1 full bath and some of the original pine wide plank floors that have been refinished.

Recently added 2 car attached garage with an enclosed breezeway that offers additional space for your boots and other storage.  The basement has a poured concrete floor and workshop area with designated root cellar storage racks and canned goods shelves that are built-in.  This is not your ordinary 1800s style basement; it offers a true walk-out door and additional usable space.  If more storage space is needed, there is attic storage above the garage and the main house.

The property includes several established raised garden beds, heated enclosed chicken coop, and additional storage under the deck.  Some plantings include a mulberry tree, apple trees and raspberry brambles along with some established herb gardens.  There is a man-made pond that is 12 ft. deep with a dock and approximately 100 ft. across that is stocked with largemouth bass and grass carp.  There is a walking trail that leads from the backyard to the Owasco Inlet which touches the back side of the property.  There are several acres that have grown up into brush that could be reclaimed and utilized for pasturing livestock.

The property has maple trees at the sound end that the current owners have tapped in the past for maple syrup production.  There is an invisible pet fence installed around the perimeter of the yard to keep your pets safe.

The current owner had energy efficiency in mind when remodeling and there was more than adequate insulation installed with R-50 in the attic space and 6 inches in the walls with extruded polystyrene board for a well-sealed home.  There is a 4.5 Kilowatt solar system that is tied in to the grid.  The average monthly electric bill is less than $20!  Central heating is provided by a fuel oil forced air furnace and a hi efficiency wood stove that is centrally located in the home to offset the heat bill.  The wood stove mantle surround was constructed with stones gathered from the property.  LOW monthly utilities.  Great location and an easy drive to Ithaca and Cortland area.

Attractively priced at $279,900.  Contact Brian Jackson 607-280-1058 (text friendly) for more information and to schedule a private showing.
