Coverdale Cobblestone House is a historic home located at Leicester in Livingston County, New York. It was completed in 1837 and has a 2-story, three-by-four-bay cobblestone main block, a 1 12-story kitchen wing, and a 1-story cobblestone and frame carriage shed. It was built in the late Federal / early Greek Revival style. It features medium-sized cobbles in its construction.[2]

The house underwent restoration between December 2005 and February 2010. The mortar has been refinished, new thermal insulated windows, rebuilt carriage house, inside re-plastered, new wooden floors, and new front porch. A new Crown Steam Boiler was installed in November 2009. A new cement basement floor was poured 4–6 inches thick; twin Roth 275 fuel oil tanks installed November 2010; a widow's walk was installed in summer of 2010.

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2005.[1]
