Westfield house description

Our fully renovated, converted one-room schoolhouse, built in 1883, is located in a private rural setting on a semi-wooded one acre lot, complete with a meandering stream and plenty of property for relaxing or entertaining guests. The 1200 square foot house has many of its original historic features, including hardwood floors with marks still visible where the school desks were bolted down, slate chalkboards, schoolhouse lights, and all ten of the original seven foot tall windows.

The floor plan is open and furnished with a mix of old and new, with a fully equipped stainless steel & granite kitchen that opens into a large dining and living area with 14 foot ceilings. The dining table seats six, and there are 3 bar stools for additional seating at the kitchen counter. There is a full bath on the first floor with a tiled walk-in shower. The living area has two couches, one with a queen size pullout bed. The loft bedroom has a double bed, a half bath and walk-in closet. There is a laundry room on the basement level.

The schoolhouse is located just 5.5 miles from downtown Westfield, NY and 16 miles from the world renowned Chautauqua Institution (Named best small town to visit in 2014 by Smithsonian Magazine) which offers concerts, theater performances and world famous speakers. You will be staying in the heart of Lake Erie Wine Country, with 24+ estate and commercial wineries located in the largest grape-growing region east of the Rockies, and extending roughly 40 miles from Silver Creek, New York to North East, Pennsylvania. We are 6 miles from the Barcelona Harbor (home to the first gas-lit lighthouse in the world) and the public beach on Lake Erie, and just 1.5 hours from the Buffalo Airport and Niagara Falls. There are several golf courses nearby as well as ski resorts, nature trails, numerous restaurants, shops, malls, museums, and a casino - most within a 30 mile radius. Enjoy some of the best fishing in the world with the Steelhead fishery found in Chautauqua Creek, or charter a boat for some Lake Erie fishing. There is so much to do, it is impossible to list it all here!

Must be at least 25 yrs. old to rent this property.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2005

              About the owner: My husband and I purchased this property in 2005 with a vision of restoring it into something that we could enjoy ourselves, and share with others.

              Why the Owner Chose Westfield:
              We both grew up in the area and we love where we live! Knowing how much our friends from out of town love the area too, we felt we couldn't go wrong investing in our own back yard.
