1215 Chenango St.




This historic 1825 home has been completely updated without losing its vintage charm. Known as the Crocker Mansion, it is in a suburban neighborhood outside the city of Binghamton, but the house and the grounds feel like a gracious oasis. Generous entryway divides the formal living with pocket doors and the formal dining room. Both rooms have a working fireplace and gleaming hardwood floors. Behind the dining room is a modern eat-in kitchen with window seat, a family room. Beyond that is the 1915 addition with separate entrance, laundry room, full bath and either master bedroom, in-law, or additional family room. There are back stairs, and a charming little half bath under the main stairs. Upstairs, the second floor has four generous bedrooms and a full bath, and there's still more room in the semi-finished walk-up attic. The original wide board floors can be seen on the top floor; the second floor bedrooms and hall are fully carpeted. Outside, a porch wraps around the side and the back of the house, plus patio doors lead to an easy-care Trex deck from the bedroom/family room. There's an oversized two car garage, multiple porches, and generous, fenced lawn and mature shade trees to the back. Handy to restaurants, and a walk to the local high school, 15 min to Binghamton University. Structurally sound, this historic gem has been well cared for and will continue to be a comfortable home for generations to come.
