Description for 500 Stewart Road, Franklin, NY 13775
IDYLLIC PRIVACY is the first thing that comes to mind as you drive down the 2 TOWN-MAINTAINED dead-end roads to this property. As you arrive at this 1999, EUROPEAN-INSPIRED HOME, you note its thoughtful integration to the natural environment. Built from the ground up (literally) with ENERGY EFFICIENCY in mind, the home offers a truly beautiful lifestyle. Each piece of wood in the home (save for the high-quality wood Andersen windows) came from the property. HAND-CUT CHERRY WALLS and handsome solid MAPLE FLOORS make for stunning rooms. The home, designed with an INNOVATIVE PASSIVE SOLAR heat-sink technology, traps and stores heat throughout the summer and recirculates that heat all winter via an easy-to-maintain airflow system. One of only a few such properties in the area, this very desirable construction keeps temperatures comfortable with minimal expense. The ANDERSEN WINDOWS and tight-fitting construction mean the home is cool in summer and warm in winter. GAS-LOG FIREPLACES, one on the ground floor and one in the living room, add a lovely ambiance and additional warmth, but are seldom needed to heat the home. The large OPEN-PLAN MAIN FLOOR has a bedroom and full bath combination, with access from 2 sides. The CATHEDRAL CEILING living room area is open to a large front porch, but also to a dining area, which opens to the kitchen, making for easy parties, and family gatherings. The 1120 square foot finished ground floor has a bedroom, full bath, and small kitchenette, complete with sink, counter, and microwave. It is ideal for entertaining, or even used as a separate apartment. A small pellet stove, strategically placed next to the double doors, makes coming in from cross country skiing, snowshoeing or hunting expeditions a pleasure. The top floor is currently unfinished, but is roughed-out for 2 additional bedrooms and a large bathroom -- insulation, plumbing and electric service are all in place, ready for your finishing touches (making the home a total of 4 possible bedrooms and 3 bathrooms). The grounds around this ultra-private 11-acre lot truly set it apart. Trails lead through the woods to the top of the mountain, and to a large pond, and along the stream below. Great, hand-laid stone walls, and carefully constructed mature perennial gardens with massive stonework complete the setting. There is a heated single-car garage close to the house, and a larger multi-bay garage/barn and machine shed at the property's entrance that can hold numerous tractors, and other equipment, or big kid' toys. Minutes from Franklin, and Oneonta, this is a great family home for those who love private, energy-efficient living.
