The winter pictures don’t showcase the orchards, but they do depict a peaceful frozen landscape around this pristine Italianate Victorian home.
Built in 1874, this beauty is currently for sale outside the Village of Penn Yan, New York.
It is listed for $339,000.
Situated on a gentle rise in the Finger Lakes wine country, this majestic beauty has wide valley views of the surrounding apple orchards. The property is .82 acres.
Have a look inside…
This preserved Victorian has 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms in 2,950 square feet.
The main floor features a formal dining room, a living room with gas fireplace, a front parlor, a den/study, and a full bathroom and laundry.
The room below – the den/study – has an interesting set-up.
You enter the room seeing this big brown sofa plunked in the middle…
But it serves a wonderful purpose: a seat from which to gaze out the stunning bay of windows.
Then behind it, there is an office area with built-in bookshelves.
But House Crazy Sarah would never get any work done in here… she’d be on the couch all day, soaking in the window views.
Below is the formal dining room with some vivid floral wallpaper...
Again, we see those tall windows that rise up from the floor, allowing natural light to flow in and make those wood floors shine.
The remodeled kitchen has an eat-in countertop island.
Rounding out the main floor is a bathroom and laundry room.
All of the 4 bedrooms and 2 more full bathrooms are located on the second floor.
The master suite includes a large bathroom as well as a bonus sitting/dressing room area.
The luxurious master bathroom has heated tile floors, and no coverings on the windows so you can savor those exquisite views from the soaking tub.
The sitting room would make a great nursery – and probably was a nursery at various points over the years!
Another amazing feature about this home is the rooftop cupola…
How dreamy are the views from this adorable perch?
This house is just a delight to look at!
Another beautifully remodeled bathroom:
More floral wallpaper in this bedroom:
All of the rooms have such a peaceful, timeless feel about them.
One final gem to highlight in this home: the restored back porch overlooking the pastoral orchards.
“Winter is a glorious spectacle of glittering fractals complete with a soundscape and atmosphere entirely its own.”
— Anders Swanson
This home and property must be gorgeous in full summer bloom, but there’s something particularly magical about it in the depths of a frozen, quiet winter.
