117 North St., Granville, NY 12832
The Village of Granville is nestled in the Mettowee River Valley, a gateway to both the Lakes Region of Vermont and the Adirondack Mountains with lush forests and rolling hills surrounding the quaint village. We had looked at a house in Granville years ago. It was an Italianate on a couple of acres with floor to ceiling windows and wonderful paneling. In fact, we still have a video of it, where my husband goes up into the attic, only to find hundreds of bats sleeping up there and piles of guano. That was a deal breaker for me. My cousin lives in Granville, though, in a lovely older home that she’s renovated.
Hopefully, this circa 1850 Colonial farmhouse has no bats. What it does have, however, is an in-ground pool and almost 2.5 acres with outbuildings, a pole barn and some great views. You could easily raise chickens here and have a large garden. A great big plus is that it has public water and sewer, too. Granville is known as the “Colored Slate Capital of the World,” so it’s not surprising that this home has a slate roof. Hardwood floors, French doors, a fireplace, built-ins, three kitchens and two baths make this house a real contender for a country summer home or a primary back-to-the-land residence.
