The realtor’s 1909 build date of this handyman special is incorrect, as the U.S. Census has the Maloney family living here in 1880. What a wonderful family home this could be again with its wrap-around porch, bay window and beautiful curved staircase. It is located just a five minute drive over the river to Elmira College, and I love the view of the church from the backyard of the house. Did you notice the second staircase?
2 story home with 4/5 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms . Located on a large lot with driveway and detached 2 car garage . This house needs some TLC. With some work it could be a great single family home or possibly a up/ down multi unit as there are 2 doors of entrance . Newer windows throughout , Nice long driveway with turn around area for garage and partially fenced in backyard . The house has no electric or heat on right now . Selling “as is” Basement entrance is in the back. Per Listing
I find this amazing, that the Maloney family lived in this home for more than 140 years! Originally, this was the home of Dennis Maloney (b.1844) and his wife Lucy. Dennis came to the United States from Ireland as a young child, married Lucy Rogers (1855-1931), took a job as a machinist and had this house built for his family sometime before 1880. The couple had six sons who they raised here; Cornelius, John, Robert, Edmund, Gerald and Frances. The house has seen several deaths occur her, as well as funerals and births as it was passed down to children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren through the decades.
