About 1 Oakland Avenue

Step back in time. This stately home with incredible details, huge rooms, and great history is a hidden gem in the village of Chester. This home and the nearly 10 acres it sits on is available for the first time in over 60 years. This house tells a story, once a small race track in the 1800's and then a dairy barn. The house is stone and brick with a slate roof that's in excellent condition. There is a new high efficiency boiler and updated electric. The walk up has two finished rooms for storage and the basement has full size windows, high ceilings, an exterior and large brick fireplace. The first floor has 12 foot high ceilings, thick molding, built-ins, 6 fireplaces, one is marble and some are brick (all need new linings). The two staircases both front and back have all the original mahogany woodwork. The floors are oak with mahogany trim in many of the rooms. The The grounds are beautiful with outbuildings, a cottage with it's own utilities and a tennis court all of which needs repair.
