Nestled within the heart of the most desirable community in the Utica area, is a 1923 French – inspired home that is the perfect marriage of harmony, scale and balance.
6 Ironwood Road in New Hartford oozes sophisticated simplicity with its impeccably preserved old world panache and masterfully updated modern-day conveniences including a security system and central heat/air conditioning.
Situated on a beautifully landscaped .83 acre lot, the home’s hipped roof with graceful peaked dormers and stone facade beautifully illustrate its historic roots; a time after World War I when soldiers returned to the states to construct homes that were inspired by French manors and chateaus. The result has been one of the most enduring design styles of all time.
6 Ironwood Rd. is the epitome of this cozy opulence and one of those houses that you catch a glimpse of while driving by and can’t help but stop and take a second look. It’s easy to picture yourself dining alfresco with friends under the grand awning-covered veranda or relaxing with that someone special curled up by the living room fireplace.
The homes interior is just as exciting with its newly refinished hardwood floors, exposed beams, coffered ceiling, large multi-paned windows, French doors and its classic floor plan. You simply can’t miss the chic, French inspired spirit of this 2500 sq. ft., 2 bedroom, 3 bath home.
As you enter the home from the rear entrance, you notice the masterful craftsmanship that went into the home’s remodel. Once a dual carriage porte-cochère, the space was enclosed to accommodate a light-filled mud room and spacious family room with gorgeous coffered ceiling and numerous windows surrounding the room.
Moving past the family room is a beautifully remodeled, kitchen with stunning white with gray-veined quartz countertops, white cabinetry, tiled walls, Kitchen Aide stainless steel cooktop, dishwasher, double oven and Amana stainless refrigerator and original hardwood flooring. Warmed by morning sunlight streaming through the windows, this is the perfect spot to grab that first cup of coffee.
Entering the dining room, the home’s design heritage becomes even more apparent with its original canvas ceiling, exposed beams, creamy wall colors and dark moldings surrounding the room’s wall of windows and fireplace. The glow from the morning light coming through the windows is simply breathtaking and provides an extraordinarily light and airy feeling to the dining room.
Off the dining room is a particularly inviting living room loaded with character. It’s the perfect place for entertaining with its brick fireplace, front-facing bank of windows and set of French doors leading to the outside covered veranda.
Connected to the living room is an intimate study/library that is the perfect space to curl up with a good book. This room has lots of flexibility and could be easily converted to a downstairs guest room with its existing full bath with pedestal sink and hexagon tile shower.
Moving upstairs the first thing you notice is the built-in bookcase at the top of the stairs, leading to the hall full bath and bedrooms. The 17×17 master suite is simply stellar with it’s dressing and sitting rooms with pocket doors sectioning off the spaces, over-the-bed skylight, roomy full bath with the original tub and a spacious sauna. It’s the ultimate private retreat after a long day.
The large 22×15 second bedroom is also an extraordinary space with skylight, 10 large multi-paned windows surrounding the room and enough space for two queen size beds.
A beautifully renovated early 20th century home with all the warmth and character of a French country house, located in the heart of New Hartford with it’s top rated schools, restaurants, shopping and Valley View Golf Course minutes away…what could be better!
