    Love that front on shot. That porch! The curved roofline! Oh for some interior photos…

    This feels like a joke. This gorgeous house and 20 acres for under $30,000?

    I can only assume (based on the lack of pictures) that the inside is a total wreck. But the realtor’s description doesn’t exactly reflect that.

      I was thinking the same thing…nothing but a shell, really.

      My wife and I bought it and it’s not a total wreck inside. In fact, it’s beautiful with the majority of the work being focused on plumbing and septic issues.

        Congrats, Craig! My husband and I live in Stratford, and we always admired this house. We were sad to see it sit for so long, knowing the potential it had and how gorgeous it was.

        I’m glad to see it revived!

    The house looks like one of Bronson Pinchot’s houses was Victorianized. Really nice bones. I can’t believe that price even with no house. Are we sure the acreage is correct?

    Thought we did this one a few months back – the home of farmer Franklin Luther (1835-1930) who raised 8 children here with his wife Ella Cole. Salisbury Center is the hamlet and the house is right across from the new Post Office. Not much happening up there and prices are low. Foreclosure?

    Here we go, the group OHD house. 🙂 How much do we need to chip in?

    Anytime the words “nice open floor plan” are used in the description of a Victorian, I worry. But the outside looks nice, and you can’t beat 20 acres–at a pittance.

    I’m going to check on what Homepath criteria are.

    Zillow says the house is in foreclosure.

    TWC claims to offer cable to that address, up to 50mbs, though call to confirm if you’re really interested. It sure would be nice to see some interior photos, especially at that low of a price.

    The less pics, the more to hide? Even if it’s disasterous, the seller should provide some pics for those living too far away to see in person. Missing a lot of sales potential in my opinion. Must be a reason why a local builder wouldn’t scoff it up. Devil’s in the details!

      It’s a foreclosure. Pretty common there are no interior pics for foreclosures.

      May still be occupied thus no photos if they aren’t happy about losing it.

      I suspect that there is not enough demand for a house like that, and renovation (not to mention restoration) might have it priced far above what the local market can support. While the land sounds tempting, again, it might not have enough potential, or have access issues, etc., and there is certainly no shortage of buildable land in the area.

    The exterior is anything and everything an old house dreamer could want. The yard is just begging for me to get my hands on it. Alas I read open plan and see no pictures of an interior so I’d have to be pessimistic about the future of this house.

    I see homes all over this area that are dying, along with pretty much everything between Albany and Syracuse. I would go if I could convince my wife we’re really ready to “retire” and be landed gentry!

    Anyone live Close? Are the rest of the acres Wooded?

    Love it. See back boarded up window, wonder if someone broke in and vandalized it. The land is so nice with old houses. You can walk (with the dog etc.) Kids can run around and no noisy neighbors. Or just quiet for older people. I am surprised thst there is only one chimney. Surely there were more when this was built. (Before propane, electric etc._

    Good golly, good gosh! I’m up for a road trip, and a time share. My only question is who’s chopping the firewood?

      We have a chain saw and a log splitter. I’m in. It would be so much fun to fix up. Summers are really hot in Georgia. It would be nice to go up to a interesting place in the cool Woods. And admit it aren’t you just dying to start working on it?! 4 bedrooms and 3000 square ft. I also have extra furniture that would look great in there. Could someone see the interior and report to us? We could also clear some land and make pasture for the horses.

    I wonder what year it was built?

    I live near by. Have yet to hear back about a possible showing so curiosity got the best of me. Due to all the snow I was only able to walk around on the front porch and peek in the windows. Yes, it does need A LOT of TLC and is outdated. Front porch is falling apart, windows are obviously old and a few are broken including one of the panes on the front door. Speaking of doors there are 3 of them that open up to the front porch not including the sun porch on the left side. The land behind the house is wooded. It’s right off the main highway, I personally didn’t think it was too much of a front lawn, it actually caught me off guard driving up to it because I thought it may have been pushed back further from the road but it’s not horribly close. Something else I wasn’t fond of, it may have just been because the staircase was dark but it seemed very narrow and right there in your face when you open the door.

    As of 2/5/2017, the listing agent informed me that this house sold.

    We bought it! We are relatively new to the area and I’ve been in love with this place since day one. It’s rough, but better than bones. We have an extra large family and are going to make it a home again.we can’t wait to get to work!

    I am glad it is going to a good owner( I’m a bit jealous!!). It would be lovely to see the restoration as it goes along. Good luck! Fran
