About Gloria Jean Cestero-Hurd

I am a semi-retired academic administrator and native New Yorker from Manhattan. Living in this little corner of the world brings a great deal of balance into life. Things like fire fly dances in the summer and tree swallows arriving each spring remind us that we need to stop and take the time to enjoy the beauty that nature has to offer.

Gloria Jean Cestero-Hurd purchased this farmhouse in 2006

Why Gloria Jean Cestero-Hurd chose Central Leatherstocking

Cooperstown is a small town that has a great reach: Fine dining, museums, a pristine lake, outdoor activities, a fabulous Farmer's Market, a state of the art gym and a hospital affiliated with the prestigious the Columbia Presbyterian Hospital. The decision to relocate here from the Hudson Valley was easy. My husband and I purchased this historic home in 2006 - it had been abandoned for eight years. The property spent most of its life as a dairy farm. Much of the structure could not be saved which gave us the opportunity to marry some modern conveniences into the renovation. The reason why there is an open floor plan and exposed beam work - but the windows are the true location. The views you see haven't changed in 200 years - it's impressive.

What makes this farmhouse unique

In addition to the views, one of the most cherished things about the property is the perimeter walk. It is best enjoyed at sunrise with a cup of coffee, or in the early evening before dinner. We also have something unique to the area called "fogbows". They are similar to rainbows, but instead of color it is dreamy white and you can see water particles. We get fog almost every morning for about 10 minutes or so - its fascinating to see the fog pass up Panther Mountain in the morning hours.
