House of the Week: Finished in 1838, this Baldwinsville Greek Revival has plenty of ‘character and charm’

Baldwinsville, NY – An old photo is displayed at Sherry’s Hoffman’s house at 1 East Oneida Street in Baldwinsville.

The photo shows the family Squier Manro, An early pioneer from Massachusetts to Central New York. He and his sons became successful farmers, bankers and businessmen in Onondaga County in the first half of the 19th century.

In 1830, Munro purchased the land on which Hoffman’s house was built, and his descendants built an impressive Greek Revival style there, which was completed in 1838. This house is registered in the National Historical Buildings Register.

The photo is a link from the original family of the house to Hoffman and the person who bought the beautiful 4-bedroom, 4-bathroom house.

“There is a lot of history,” Hoffman said. “The photo remains at home for the next family.”

Hoffman, co-owner of 315 Realty PartnerI bought a house in 2020 and moved my family there from Radison.

Impressed by the “impressive house with pillars,” she said she “fallen in love” with the “personality and charm” of the house before stepping into it.

There was also something more practical that drew her there.

There were three teens and the house was perfect.

Located on a corner, this house is within walking distance of Baldwindsville’s business district, and CW Baker High School is effectively in her backyard.

She said that being so close to everything in the village “opened so many doors” for her children and changed “the quality of their lives.”

While she was working, they were able to get in and out of school activities.

“And it has a pool,” Hoffman said.

Each of her children had their own bedroom and studied on a large granite island in the kitchen. In mild weather, I studied in an impressive three-season porch overlooking the pool and patio along the entire length of the back of the house.

She said she and her children spend most of their time there.

During the first Christmas there, during a pandemic they couldn’t have, she decorated the house with seven Christmas trees in front of many windows in the house.

“It was my favorite time there,” she said. “I loved pulling home and seeing the light reflected from the windows.”

During the summer vacation, she decorates the front of the house with flags and patriotic buntings.

The house has been remodeled several times in its history, and Hoffman also put her mark on it.

She widened the driveway, painted the interior with fresh paint of historically correct colors, and refinished the original hardwood floor of the house.

“That was the first thing I did,” she said of the now shining floor. “I brought them back to life.”

She joked that the house was 200 years old without air conditioning, but “I only lasted a month.” The bedroom on the second floor is cool this summer.

Also, ironically, she added a sauna right next to the porch for three seasons.

Hoffman rented a living space of just under 3,400 square feet, partly as an Airbnb with a spacious living area, a full bathroom with a stone walk-in shower, and a private entrance.

“I love it,” Hoffman says of her home and admits that she is “definitely torn” about putting her home on the market.

She will stay in the village.
