Sherman Circle—“The Nanny’s House”
It’s not often that you see a house that has been so masterfully updated to blend its historic craftsmanship with the open, airy floor plans of today’s modern elegance. Everything from the French gray and designer white paint, to the gorgeous hardwood floors, the granite countertops and the lighting fixtures, speaks to the meticulous attention to detail…giving the house a crisp, contemporary feel while preserving its historic heritage of interesting architectural angles and built-ins not often seen in today’s homes.
Speaking of historic heritage…this beautiful home with its 1.04 acres shares a unique connection to the renowned Sherman Castle across the street. The property was once owned by the estate and the home served as the nanny’s residence in 1929. Sherman Circle is not your typical neighborhood. It’s an exclusive area of estate-sized homes and luxury properties. Finding a home like 27 Sherman Circle with its history, location and impeccable update is a rare find indeed!
This 2,366 sq. ft. home embodies the quiet elegance of a life well lived. From the moment you pull into the driveway, you’re immediately struck by the captivating brick exterior with slate roof, the Koi pond and winding rock pathway leading you to the front door. With a curb appeal and landscaping that reminds you of an English country house, you may forget that you’re only 4 miles from the New Hartford High School (ranked nationally at the top 2%), 25 minutes from Turning Stone Casino Resort and their world-class golf course, or 45 minutes from the Syracuse International Airport. In fact, New York City is only 248 miles away.
Stepping inside the house, you can’t help but notice the spotless, light-filled rooms with a brick fireplace that centers the layout of the connected spaces, including the spacious living room with ample windows and architectural nook for your favorite object d’art; a large dining room, a galley-style kitchen with beautiful granite countertops and stainless steel appliances.
This four bedroom, two full bath house is pristine and move-in ready. Everything from the hardwood floors to the new multi-paned windows shines from the natural light streaming into the rooms. There are numerous remarkable spaces throughout this house including a full basement with washer/dryer connections and mud sink; a great office space at the front of the house; and a spiral staircase leading to a loft upstairs from the downstairs bedroom…perfect for a private library or extra guest room.
