This historic church is part of an Historic Landscape District on the National Register. All the other houses in the village have been restored, making for lovely walks and the relaxed experience of being surrounded by nature and history. From the road the church appears as it has for the past 150 years, but inside it has been transformed into a spacious and unique vacation residence. Where the altar once stood large glass doors open onto a flagstone terrace with views of the hillside and fields.
The interior is loft-like in feel withspaces flowing from front to back and from downstairs to the upstairs via a large opening where the balcony boundary once existed. The dining / living area measures 34' X 18'. Upstairs is an entirely open 34' x 45' space with a working studio section and windows on all sides.
My family's property is on the hills above the valley where The church is located, the easternnost tributary of the Susquehana river that originates in Otsego Lake in Cooperstown. It is in the center of what remains of a small village, the old hotel, the lawyer's office, the old grange hall, and a two churches, both now renovated for weekend homes.
“This historic church is not your standard neutral rental property. It is filled with family furniture, and upstairs is a printmaking and painting studio.It is an artist's loft in the country.”
Cooperstown is 18 miles away over the hills, a lovely drive. There is a fishing stream in the valley, and there are many hikes in the area.
