CAN THIS HOUSE BE SAVED: Fairview Manor, Claverack, New York
The fabulous Kelly of Old House Dreams posted a remarkable property. And it is soooooooooo a Ross kinda property.
The 1869 main house is absurdly huge, and in terrifying condition. You see, just my kinda place.
The property includes numerous structures in addition to the big house, such as what appears to be a former playhouse converted into a studio. The town is two hours from New York City, up the Hudson.
Almost 12 acres, and all yours for $1.7M. I have no idea what the Chemiakin pieces would be valued at.
My ideal would to live in such a house while maintaining a small apartment in Manhattan. The best of both worlds.
NOTE: Here is Part II.
