    Posting because the windows are great, the home sits on a pretty lot and the potential is awesome.

      Are those French door pairs up front flanking the entry door? They look like they have vertical dead bolts top and bottom.

        I could not find the word in English but the system is called “crémone” in French. You turn the knob and it will have an upper metal rod go up and latch into a dead end on the top of the window frame, and same for the lower bar to secure the “porte-fenêtre” closed (french door, but litteraly “door-window”). You can see 2 pics here with close-ups: http://monblogserrurierparis.fr/2015/07/06/pose-de-cremonestringlesfermeture-fenetres-paris/ This system dates back to the 19th century and is widely used in France in older buildings (before PVC windows and sliding bay-windows took over the window business).

    Even with the mess I can see what a gem this could be. Bring in the dumpsters! Just cleaning it out would be a huge improvement. The street view shows a great setting too.

    Well now, that’s a project. I’d probably leave the pool off the listing description if I were in charge. But so much potential; I love the tall windows.

      ? I also thought the description of the pool was a bit of a stretch! Lots of good stuff here despite the condition inside. I would take her in a heartbeat.

    Geeeshhh, ugly divorce or a quick getaway?! Great home even with the mess, will be AWESOME for the right owner!

    Holy smokes! Wouldn’t THIS be fun (no sarcasm–I’m kind of “sick” that way)???? Well, after the shoveling it OUT, I mean. That’s what dumpsters are for. The slightly rusty tin roof is just part of the charm, and I can see myself working on this place.

    This isn’t anything I haven’t tackled before–in fact, the first house I bought in Ohio 15 years ago was in much worse shape (and had TWO swimming pools like that!), and it was flipped in 3 years for 3x what I paid for it. This place, though…I’d probably keep it. Nice part of NY, too.

    Street view shows house with a dumpster in front,that it looks like they filled with the porch roof. Sigh.
    By the way,it’s close to Bard College.

    Wow, this a fabulous opportunity for someone with good renovation skills and cash. The property is assessed at $300k and even major issues like foundation or septic could be remedied within a reasonable budget. It’s not a mansion but attractive with some authentic detail. Some risk of demo since it’s a very desirable area near Bard College, Tivoli and Rhinebeck. I’ll be surprised if it lasts a month!

    I love this area! Up the Hudson Valley. Wish I still lived out there. I would take this property in a heart beat. The lot is worth the price alone.

    Tremendous potential & 3 acres of beauty!

    Heartbreaking. What a beautiful home. It deserves so much better. *sniff*

    $1287 a month taxes? I can afford the mortgage but not the taxes. This shocked me and I lived in NYC for 17 years. Maybe the taxes are less in the city. This house and property has sooo much potential. The bathroom pic makes me think an older person lived there and possibly passed away. Norway has many homes in this condition in the rural areas.

    This house would make a lot more sense if the original front porch were still in place. With all those doorways, restoring the porch is probably the only reasonable way to keep water out of the building.

    Given the price and the area’s desirability/proximity to NYC, this place is likely to move quickly – probably to a second home buyer, who can hopefully see the treasure through the trash…
