This beautiful stone center hall French Colonial home is livable as is, but with work would sell for a whole lot more. Located one mile from Gilbertsville with a rich and colorful history and some unique architectural features. Built in 1832, This house has 7 original fireplaces, a matching stone smoke house, a well house and a 30 x 40, 3 story barn (also built about 1832), all set on just over 6 acres. The farm was home to the Thorpe family for over 130 years and was built by Edward Thorp, a driving force in the erection of the Gilbertsville Academy. The home was also the birthplace of Henry Thorp, member of the NYS legislature in 1874 and Willard Thorp, distinguished professor of Victorian Literature at Princeton University.Repairs are needed, there is a sub-box with Federal Pacific breakers which needs to be replaced. The roof needs replacement or repair, the plumbing needs updating. The barn has a broken beam that needs to be repaired. If you are looking for a period manor house, look no further. The house needs some updating and needs a new roof . The barn needs a beam replaced or resupported. Windows are original. The place is liveable as is, but could use some upgrades to bring out maximum value. Fortunately, the seller is leaving plenty of meat on the bone for value by pricing the house with the assumption that it is imperfect. This is easily a $400,000 piece of property in restored condition, being offered in current condition at $179,900.00. There is a LOT of "meat on the bone".Owner is NYS licensed Associate Broker.
