Overlooking the popular Burke Park on the west side of Little Falls is a beautiful example of Victorian architecture that was popular in upscale neighborhoods during the early 20th century.
Built in 1900, this 50’x90’ corner lot home has been lovingly preserved to stay true to its heritage with its narrow, tall design with stunning turrets, bow windows, gorgeous stained glass window over the stairs, it’s decorative trim and ceiling designs throughout the home.
Without question, this meticulously preserved 2690 sq. Ft., 5 bedroom, 4 baths home (2 full and 2 half baths) is a rare find. Situated within one of the most charming small towns in Upstate New York, Little Falls evokes images of Currier & Ives postcards with the Mohawk River running through the heart of this valley town. People come from all over by car and by boat to see first hand its wonderfully preserved charm, friendly residents and its numerous cultural and heritage celebrations throughout the year.
As you enter the home from the front of the house, you’ll see a spacious sunroom that was part of an earlier renovation to enclose the front porch area. This flexible space is cozy and light filled with numerous large windows, giving you a Birdseye view of Burke Park.
Moving into the main portion of the house you’ll be immediately struck by the breath taking staircase and light streaming into the foyer from the stained glass window over the stairs. The original hardwood floors throughout the house are absolutely stunning and give the home a wonderful amber glow as you walk from one room to another.
The foyer has a intimate bay window seat at the base of the stairs that you can imagine has been a favorite spot over the years to view band concerts, ice cream socials and numerous celebrations at the park across the street.
To the right of the foyer is a formal parlor with three ceiling-to-floor alcove windows and an ornately carved wood fireplace with mirror and curio nooks. The hardwood floors, decorative plaster ceiling and asian-inspired wallpaper give this room a sophisticated vibe, making it an especially welcoming space for entertaining.
Pocket doors connect the living room to the dining area and provide an open and airy feeling. The dining room’s neutral color palette and natural light streaming through the tall windows continue that sophisticated vibe that connects the two spaces.
Returning to the hallway, you see a convenient half bath under the staircase to the left and a set of gorgeous French doors leading to the family room at the end of the hall. The family room is a cozy, informal space that almost beacons you to grab a good book and curl up next to the fireplace.
Connected to the family room and the dining area is the kitchen. It’s a stunning space with chef inspired touches rarely seen in a turn-of-the century home. A huge Corian island with sink centers this spacious room and offers casual dining and entertaining flexibility. The beautiful hardwood cabinets will take your breath away with their amber toned grain and lit glass-door accents. The decorative tile backsplash, black appliances and a charming coffee nook make this kitchen exceptional.
Transitioning upstairs, the master suite with its decorative plaster ceiling, floor-to-ceiling windows, fireplace and ensuite full bath with jacuzzi tub, tiled floor and walls is stunning. A built-in closet with plenty of storage cabinets is another thoughtful renovation feature.
Leading from the master suite is a back staircase, upper balcony access and a small bedroom/nursery to the right. Other bedrooms have fireplaces, built-in vanity areas with decorative porcelain sinks and original hardwood floors.
Also on the upper level is a light-filled office/study that takes advantage of the upper turret architecture and view to the front of the house.
And, just when you think you’ve seen it all…you notice a secluded, fenced in patio off the kitchen. It’s the perfect spot to grab your favorite person, a glass of wine and escape to your own private retreat after a long day.
500 East Gansevoort Street is a historical gem, lovingly renovated with all the modern amenities you would expect to see in modern construction. Located within a safe, friendly community and a short walk to shopping, restaurants, schools and parks. Does it get any better than this?
