An opus of history dating back to early European settlement of the town of Spencer, this adaptable farm and its multitude of virtues beg to have their tradition and legacy continued with its next owner. Like the patinaed home the adorns it, this diamond in the rough property gives light to the possibilities presented to those who can see it's unpolished potential. The historical narrative starts with the construction of the home and cultivation of the lands that were once worked. With time the home has weathered but the bones appear to remain strong while the land's tapestry has matured and manifested into a wildlife haven amid the enchanting stand of mixed conifers and hardwoods punctuated by a tranquil half acre pond. The bones and foundation of the four bedroom, one bath home appear to be fortified and strong with still-working full service 200 AMP electric service. Clad in a new roof in approximately 2018 the home remains weather tight, while providing an opportunity to reinstate the spirit that once filled it. Meanwhile the more-recently-built barn provides ample storage, a place to work or even the potential to expand its uses to potentially be finished as living quarters. With a little inspiration and some work the possibilities for this hallowed estate are as extensive as one's imagination devise. Home to many deer, cottontail, fox, woodchuck, etc. and many species of birds, including turkey and grouse wildlife encounters are common offering nature lovers or outdoorsmen a place to savor. The center of the town of Spencer is only about a mile from the house; the high school is about two miles; and the Spencer-Van Etten Elementary School is approximately three miles from the property making it a great location for a get-away or full time residence. Watkins Glen, Ithaca, Elmira and Binghamton are all within reasonable driving distance and provide significant resources and amenities. A great place for the adventurous, handy or inspired who would like some space, love nature, and aspire to take advantage of the character and way of life in NY's Southern Tier.
