Are you a fan of history? This home is one of the nicest historic homes in the Ballston Spa area! The original building was the workshop for a historic Axe sharpening and Scythe manufacturing company back in the late 1700's. Historic details from that era can be found throughout the home and in the landscape. The front step is an old grinding stone that was one used to sharpen tools and more grinding stones can be found in different areas of the yard. The original customer window to the shop is a decorative accent in the family room. Much of the original brick is exposed insideto give that flattering historic feel to the home. The outsideis the original brick facade andwas very well done with decorative blocking around the windows and trim.
