Amazing home.
I take it all back, Kelly. Stay up. Never rest. Keep searching for homes! Wow!
Seriously, since I am a very early riser, today is a wonderful early morning present.

Yes, a very beautiful home for the price. I love the bathtub fittings and the original house details
seem to be well preserved. As well as the World Book Encyclopedias (which I grew up with).

Terrific house. Very little not to like except maybe the high taxes and location, but as the house is
all but being given away, the taxes are more forgivable, and I’ve always liked a high hedge across
a front property line (the better here to hide a busy street and a Walgreen’s.)
Beautiful exterior, and a rear elevation no less interesting with that great flag-stoned porch.
Impressive interior, too, and good proportions and large rooms.
A great find.

Beautiful home. Needs some cosmetic work inside. The location makes it look like a commercial
property. It looks to have business and commercial properties on every side.
Is that a good price for a foreclosure in north western NY state?
It’s a lot of house, but I’m wondering..

Yes – I live in Western New York and for that caliber of a house that is a good price. And yes
the taxes are high here. Great house though for the money. The location actually isn’t that
bad – it is near both Rochester and Buffalo, NY and adjacent to Batavia, NY

LeRoy has employed an interesting planning concept to save its downtown area. Right across from
this house and the Town Hall in the center of town, they tear down a half dozen old houses and
commercial buildings to allow for the construction of a Walgreens that would be more suited
elsewhere. Rotate the Bing bird’s eye view to see before and after. Previously they allowed a
grocery right next to this house and a McDonalds down the street. WTF are these people thinking?

Regrettably, many of these faded small towns welcome “progress” at any cost. I recall a
grand towered Queen Anne style home of landmark quality being sacrificed for a chain drug
store in Gouverneur, NY a few years back. Old houses are common in many of these smaller
upstate towns apparently so the promise of a few new local jobs outweigh any preservation
concerns. Good that this one is still standing-it’s a great transitional house between the
passing Greek Revival style and the newer Italianate style. Great interior details. I’ve accepted
it as gospel that high property taxes are a fact of life in New York state but it would be
difficult to pay nearly a thousand a month in property taxes into my retirement years with the
reduced income that often comes with retirement.

This is true. I work in a small village in NY and it’s definitely been a concern between
the preservationists and the people that want jobs. No MacDonalds has made it to the
village yet but a Dollar General did – and they didn’t use the old, open storefronts, they
built a brand new box at the edge of town. Quite a controversy for many.
This is a LOVELY home. I’ve driven through LeRoy on many occasions and it doesn’t
feel too “un-village-y”. There are some really great homes on Main Street.

I love, love, love that front facade and the Greek Revival details throughout. That staircase was
totally unexpected, though. It appears that they redid the stair hall completely at some later date,
but it also appears that’s the ONLY thing that was redone.

I thought I remembered reading something relating to LeRoy, NY recently. Yup, this was it:

Oh yes, I remember reading about those girls. I guess some will do anything for

I thought the newel post looked like a late update as soon as I saw it. No mention of that in
the Wiki page, although I don’t think they went into that much detail.

The Kenney House link talks about the changes throughout the years.

LeRoy NY is historically renowned for 2 things, the string bean and Jell-O. Calvin Keeney, the
string bean man, lived in this house and his daughter Ruth founded the local historical society. The
historical society runs the Jell-O museum and sells Jell-O t-shirts. Maybe it’s too much to ask that
they turn this place into a String Bean museum and sell string bean t-shirts.

Heck, I’d visit a string bean museum if I were in town.

Ha. You’d wander the halls alone (on every visit.)

A very beautiful home that needs some TLC but has great historical history.

Such a hardship for the former owners to lose their beautiful home…we are living in a cruel era.
I’ve never seen a carriage house/6-car garage with an attached carport. Too bad the original
carriage house doors were replaced with a modern garage door.
Thanks, Kelly, for this find…it’s such a treat.
