Some of Hershey’s Pittsford Homes

2 Stoney Clover LaneWe were in Pittsford this week and decided to drive by some Hershey homes there. We began with Stoney Clover Lane with its huge lots – up to 5 acres per home – and the large homes. Hershey designed 4 on this street. Number 2, built in 1966, is the first house as you turn onto Stoney Clover from Stone Road. It’s hard to see the home due to the number of trees but the corner windows and large overhangs are there along with the interesting orientation of the home to the street.

17 Stoney Clover Lane aerialNumber 17, built in 1958,  was very hard to see as it’s set back on its 3 acre lot but from this aerial shot it’s clear that it’s an interesting home with its 3 wings meeting at a central hub.  It’s a great example of the mid-century modern style that Hershey pioneered. Luckily, there are many shots from the real estate listing page for this home that show its interior and exterior beauty.

We suspect that number 14 is the fourth home although we can’t be sure since Hershey didn’t indicate a number in his books. He did note that Robert Dickerson hired him to do an alteration to a home on Stoney Clover Lane in 1958.
