Romantic and charming. Elegant and graceful. All words to describe this remarkable historic estate in Cazenovia on 114 majestic acres of lawns, gardens, fields and woods. Thoughtfully restored by the current owner, the c. 1820 brick Federal-style house preserves the authenticity of the original structure with modern upgrades. Wide plank wood floors, pocket doors, fireplaces and a grand entry will delight the buyer searching for an historic home. The 1st floor features formal living and dining rooms, a den, family room, eat-in kitchen and mudroom. Upstairs you will find 4 bedrooms, 2 baths and an office. An expansive deck offers a wonderful opportunity for entertaining overlooking the in-ground pool. The large barn and acreage offer potential for an equestrian enthusiast. Truly magnificent with an interesting history! Completed around 1820, the property is a typical Federal-style house, but its past is anything but. In its earliest days, the four-bedroom house served as a resting spot for drovers shipping livestock down to New York City. After the completion of the Erie Canal in 1825, the droving profession, and consequently the tavern, became obsolete. Eventually, the 114-acre property was put to use as a family farm. Drovers Tavern has had its share of notable residents. It was home to Melville Clark, the creator of the Clark Irish Harp, and his nephew Melville Clark, Jr., a physicist who worked on the Manhattan Project. The brick Federal-style home was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1934 and is now in search of a new owner to continue its long and unique history.
