Hollow Haven offers original detailing with a remarkable history. This colonial stands prominently as the first frame house built within the limits of Berlin and is distinguished as the site of the first public reading of the Declaration of Independence in Berlin, NY. Its earliest sections date to The Revolutionary War, in which its original owner fought as a patriot. It was then expanded in 1812, and again in the 1900's. This roomy home will appeal to you if you like charm, warmth and period authenticity but also modern amenities. Some of the structure is original including most of the warm wide plank flooring, doorways, some of the windows and the fireplace in the first-floor, sizable master suite. The kitchen looks out into the private yard and is the perfect setting for family gatherings or entertaining. The living room is detailed with a wood burning fireplace for evening relaxation and ambiance. An in-ground pool makes summer living a joy. This home is sited on 7 acres with sweeping lawns, gardens, and beautiful country views along with a three bay carriage barn with full loft which provides ample space for your toys. An additional garage with a shop was formerly an antique shop. Close to Jiminy Peak in Massachusetts and Bennington Vt and not far from Albany, NY.
