303 West Church Street
This large Tudor Revival styled home was built in 1850 on the Hall Family Homestead. The Halls were early settlers in the Chemung Valley. Francis Hall was a highly regarded statesman, briefly the U.S. Consul to Japan, Mayor of the Village of Elmira from 1852-1860, and was instrumental in the establishment of the Steele Memorial Library and Arnot-Ogden Medical Center. In 1916, the Ithaca based architectural firm of Gibb and Waltz redesigned the facade of the building, resulting in the present Tudor Style of the house. Since 1937, the building has housed various professional offices, retail and commercial business, and individual apartments.
We purchased the property in 2011, gave it several updates and restored many of its old details. The building features hardwood floors throughout, oak kitchen cabinetry, tile floor bathrooms with cherry cabinetry, large windows and fireplaces. The Hall House boasts five 1-bedroom apartments as well as a luxury studio apartment used for Airbnb. The first floor consists of the two largest units, as well as the Airbnb studio. The main entrance and vestibule are complimented by side entrance through a solarium, converging at the central hallway. Situated in the former parlors, sitting rooms, and dining room of the mansion, the first floor units boast large rooms with dramatically high ceilings, as well as unique wood paneling, leaded glass windows, and a large fireplace. The second floor features another sprawling 1-bedroom, as well as two more quaint but luxurious 1-bedrooms, each with completely unique yet functional layouts. Utilities and amenities at this building include off street parking, laundry in some units as well as a laundry center, heat, internet, water, sewer, and trash collection.
