79 North Portage Westfield

Welcome to The Mack House, Circa 1821, a prestigious home built by James McClurg located on the historic Portage Trail, the gateway to the beautiful community of Westfield and further to Chautauqua Lake and the Chautauqua Institution. This lovely brick home is situated on a large parcel of just under two acres and includes a refurbished barn. The home has large rooms with a gracious foyer and impressive curved staircase. The parlor, living room and dining room have fireplaces (with inserts) that add warmth and charm. There is also a decorative fireplace in the master bedroom and a wood stove in the sitting room off of the kitchen. Well-known interior designer and owner, Bruce L. Roberts, has used his talents to make this a beautifully appointed home with grand chandeliers, striking wallpaper and appealing color choices. A remodeled eat-in kitchen with pantry lends itself to preparing the food for the many parties hosted by the current owner. And, with six bedrooms plus an additional sleeping area, guests are always welcome. There is a kitchen in the guest area so that the rear of the home can be used as a separate apartment. Expanding the living space, there are four newly rebuilt covered porches for cozy gatherings. Unusual for the age of this home, it is in pristine condition and has been updated with a high-efficiency furnace, airconditioning, new plumbing, wiring, new roofs on the porches and many other enhancements. For the discerning buyer who appreciates an historic home (recorded on the National Registry of Historic Homes), this is a must-see. The location in a mixed=use zoning district allows many uses which would be appropriate for this property (B & B, antique shop, professional office and many others).
