Classic Home in Belle Sherman MLS #312749
This elegant Bryant Park home has been owned by only two families since its construction in 1909 and is ready to welcome new owners. The full-width front porch leads to a gracious formal entry (it once housed a grand piano) backed by a paneled staircase and lit by a lovely stained glass window on the stair landing. Despite its age the house has an open feel and great flow, wonderful for entertaining. The entry, living room, and dining room are separated only by unpainted collonades. A well-designed kitchen addition brings lots of south light into the house and provides access, through the kitchen and the TV room, to a wraparound deck. There is also a full bath on this floor. Upstairs are four corner bedrooms and a study off a large central landing, two linen closets, and another full bath. The staircase continues to a delightful attic with Palladian windows and views of South Hill. This house has a back yard and detached two-car garage, and is an easy walk to the Cornell campus, Collegetown restaurants, elementary school, city parks, and the East Hill Recreation Way.
