An historic beauty overlooking the Shushan, NY covered bridge. This 1800's Victorian was originally the home of the Lovejoys', who owned the mills on the banks of the Battenkill. Many of the original details are still inside~including the name "Nellie 1878" on the back of a wooden bedroom door. This would make an ideal country home or B&B for fly fisherman, skiiers, and fall leaf peepers~ close to Vermont, a short drive to Upstate NY attractions~ Saratoga, and Lake George. Additional 2.7 acres available.

    Wow! Pretty home! Even better to see the historical pictures of the setting and the home.

    The outside looked a little plain to me, so I was pleasantly surprised by the inside. Very nice! I loved the old photos-can anyone make out what that says on the covered bridge? I really need to get new glasses.

    The sign says “Five Dollars fine for Rideing or Driveing on this bridge faster than a walk” The spelling made it difficult to read.

    Built for factory owner Hiram H. Lovejoy (1808-1888), the father of 11 children with wife Alcesta Hall. Their youngest Nellie Belle wrote her name on the bedroom door at age 10, later married a doctor and moved to California.
    A subsequent owner was Leonard C. Piser (1848-1927) who owned a shirt factory and brought electricity to the village of Shushan, the first place in the region to have it.
    Here’s another good old photo:

    Those old pictures are priceless, especially if this house falls into the right hands. Bringing back the original exterior features (including the fabulously ridiculous stairs) would do the home justice.

    Based on the photos, this house doesn’t need much more than a gentle dress up and a skilled eye for decorating. It already feels home-like and wears its age very well.
