Oneonta farmhouse description

This rambling home is only a 3 hour drive from Northern Manhattan and 1.5 hour drive from Albany. It is an amazing getaway from the hustle and bustle of city life. Beautifully situated on 6 acres just outside the Oneonta/Cooperstown area in upstate New York. There is a large swimming pond right on the property, and Gilbert Lake State Park is just 1.8 miles away - with great hiking, beach, and boating.
The classic yet modernized house has 2 wings: one with a private master bedroom + sitting room and full bath, the other with 3 bedrooms + sitting room and full bath. This first floor features another small bedroom, full bath, eat-in-kitchen, home office, banquet sized dining room, living room, mud room with Laundry and 3 fireplaces (1 wood-burning, and 2 gas).
There is a large covered back porch with gazebo, gas grill, and meticulous landscaping throughout the property including a small frog pond.
Approx 3,000 sf total, there is plenty of room to spread out and enjoy true country living. A serene retreat!
