Historic Farmhouse on 20 acres in West Sparta NY 8748 Dansville Mount Morris Road near Rochester


This Historic Farmhouse on 20 acres is an easy commute to Rochester.

The John McNair House was built in 1828 and has over 2,800 sq. ft. with 4 bedrooms, 1.5 bathrooms, kitchen, living room, den and 5 fireplaces (sealed).  The acreage consists of woods, fields and a fenced pasture with a seasonal waterfall.

The current owner is downsizing.  She has been the steward of this beautiful home from the bygone era.  She has preserved the property, and any construction has been with the intention of maintaining the originality of the house.  She has maintained the existing footprint, and has updated the bathrooms and kitchen.  The majority of the extensive upgrades have been to the heating and water systems including new PEX hot and cold water lines throughout, new on-demand hot-water system and new propane boiler.

The home is in very good shape and is ready to move in.  The appliances convey.  The furniture is available for purchase.

The current owner did not apply to place the home on the Historic Registry, leaving the new owner the option to or continue with the preservation.  All the original shutters and doors that are currently not in use are stored on the grounds. There is a window kitchen renovations project that needs completing, and the brick and stone are also on the premises. There is a small family memorial tree on the property that will be removed before the property is sold.
