The Reid-Tanner House exemplifies the timeless beauty of Oswego's golden age, on the shores of Lake Ontario.
Located in the historic Washington Square District, the double lot and buildings were owned by the Reid family, founders of Reid & Company hardware established in the late 1800s. The Reid family owned the property for fifty years before transferring to the Tanner family who also lived in the house for decades.
The colonial revival has been beautifully preserved and includes many of the original details such as hand carved wood, brass & crystal light fixtures and original butlers pantry.
The large house is elegantly furnished, with rooms on two floors including a covered front porch, entry vestibule, beautiful staircase, parlor sitting room, formal dining room, renovated kitchen, original bathroom, two bedrooms and enclosed rear porch. The master bedroom includes period furniture, a queen sized bed, 40" LED TV, smart blu-ray player and A/C. The second bedroom includes period furniture, a full sized bed, 32" LCD TV, smart blu-ray player and A/C. The original bathroom has ceramic wall tiles and includes an antique claw foot tub. The renovated kitchen includes stainless steel appliances, refrigerator, electric stove, microwave, toaster and coffee/espresso machine. Washer and dryer are located in the basement. It is a short walk to the pedestrian bridge riverwalk, close to downtown Oswego's many restaurants, bars, shops and movie theater. SUNY Oswego college is a 10 minute drive and public transportation is also within walking distance. Off street parking is available and high speed Internet is included.
PLEASE NOTE: The Reid-Tanner house is an original mirror image duplex, intentionally built for two generations of families. While you’ll be enjoying the (North) side of the house, the second side (South) is rented to mature tenants. The front entry vestibule, basement and ½ of the back yard is shared.
