Car-Free Upstate: Cooperstown Victorian, $279,000

17 susquehanna ave cooperstown ny

You’ll hear no complaints from us about this turn-of-the-century Victorian in Cooperstown. It’s walking distance to some great stuff in town, including Main Street shops and restaurants, Lake Front Park (less than 10 minutes on foot), and the Baseball Hall of Fame. A Trailways bus stops about 2 minutes from here, making it a respectable candidate for leaving the car parked elsewhere. The price is also of note: Size-wise and level of general curb appeal makes this house one of the better deals in this neighborhood. Sure, there are a few other houses not far away priced lower than 17 Susquehanna Avenue, but this one’s nicer. Subjectively speaking, of course. The good stuff: High ceilings, French doors, dark wood floors, 2,000+ square feet, exposed brick in the dining room, and nice woodwork. Cooperstown is in Otsego County, 3.5 hours north of NYC.

Car-Free Country House: Cooperstown Victorian, $395,000

46 elm street cooperstown ny

Cooperstown was our Town of the Week a while back, but we haven’t been back there since then. Not sure why, except that we feared it might be pushing the boundaries a bit of where we like to explore. However, it’s in Ostego County, and it’s not far from both Oneonta, Roxbury, and Delhi, so we are making an executive decision that Cooperstown qualifies as Upstater Territory. We also think Cooperstown makes a great Car-Free location, since there’s a Trailways bus station in town. Additionally, there’s enough in right in Cooperstown itself to make it less painful to be without a car this far upstate. But enough of that; let’s talk about this gorgeous Victorian, located literally a minute’s walk from the Trailways bus station on Elm Street. Right down to the color scheme, we think this circa-1860 house on a quarter of an acre pretty much nails it. Lovely neighborhood, as well.

Friday Fancy: Cooperstown Mansion on Blackbird Bay, $2.9 Million

There a multitude of multi-million dollar luxury estates in Cooperstown, many located on Otsego Lake, like this one. It certainly has all the marks of a Friday Fancy pick: Waterfront? Check. Huge in-ground pool? Check. Deck with a breathtaking view of Blackbird Bay? Check. Outdoor BBQ area perfect for crazy soirees in the summer? Check. Private boat dock? Check. Low taxes? Uh. Try around $30,000 a year. Oh well. It IS a $3 million mansion, after all.

Cooperstown Craftsman, $450,000

The listing for this Craftsman certainly doesn’t skimp on the effusiveness by stating that it’s located “On One of The Most Desireable (sic) Streets In America’s Most Perfect Village.” Having not been to every village in American, we cannot confirm if this is an accurate description. However, Nelson Avenue in Cooperstown is a nice, tree-lined residential area, and 25 Nelson Avenue is definitely a Car-Free Country House contender, since it’s located just a few minutes from the Trailways bus station. It’s also just down the block from the Baseball Hall of Fame and across the street from Blackbird Bay.

We adore the bright, clean, unfussy interior and neat-as-a-pin (if tiny) yard, complete with a fire pit and some nifty stone work on the patio, walkways, and walls. Definitely one of our favorites we’ve seen in Cooperstown this week.
