My Notes

Located just 7 miles from Cooperstown, this original 1840 FARMHOUSE, carefully expanded and meticulously maintained . . . on 126 prime acres with dramatic long views of Cherry Valley . . . is now available for the FIRST TIME in 44 Years! The MAIN LIVING AREA features 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, open RENOVATED KITCHEN with HAND-CRAFTED CABINETS and GRANITE COUNTERTOP, DINING AREA with large VIEW WINDOWS . . . plus FAMILY ROOM and LIVING ROOM (each with its own VERMONT CASTING GAS FIREPLACE) and authentic 200 YEAR-OLD BEAMS/WAINSCOTING DETAILS salvaged from the original barn. A COMPLETELY SEPARATE APARTMENT, above the attached 2 BAY-CARRIAGE HOUSE, features 2 BEDROOMS, one FULL BATH and a second FULL KITCHEN . . . an ideal arrangement for hosting extended family or friends. OR . . . put the apartment to work as a DREAMS PARK RENTAL and COVER ALL OPERATING COSTS! Formerly a DAIRY FARM, the property consists of approximately 50 ACRES of gently rolling MEADOWS/PASTURES (no fertilizers/insecticides applied in over 50 years . . . an ideal potential ORGANIC FARM) and balance of acreage is WOODLOT (last harvested 35 years ago) which gently rises to a clearing at the crown of the hill . . . Another POTENTIAL HOME SITE with separate deeded R.O.W. for private driveway! The original MILK HOUSE and 2-SEATER PRIVY have been restored as "conversation" out-buildings. A large STORAGE BARN with covered PATIO and new SCREENED-IN GAZEBO both offer a PRIVATE spot for entertaining with GORGEOUS VALLEY/MOUNTAIN VIEWS. There is located nearby a privately owned, public-use ONE-RUNWAY GRASS AIR STRIP. If this is of interest to you . . . please contact me! FENTONs FARM is a PICTURE-PERFECT, QUINTESENTIAL HOMESTEAD . . . ready for year-round living . . . or QUIET REFUGE for WEEKEND ESCAPES. The extensive property has SIGNIFICANT DEVELOPMENT POTENTIAL and PREMIER LOCATION: just a few miles from COOPERSTOWN, DREAMS PARK and OMMEGANG BREWERY.

    Market guide

    Zillow predicts New York home values will increase 0.7% next year. Among 13326 homes, this home is 107.3% more expensive than the midpoint (median) home, and is priced 50% more per square foot.

    Foreclosures will be a factor impacting home values in the next several years. In 13326, the number of foreclosures waiting to be sold is 70.4% lower than in Cooperstown, and 84.8% less than the national average. This lower local number could help 13326 home values rise more quickly than other regions in Cooperstown.
