    I see a gem of a cottage waiting to come out from its misfortune. Plus a lot of wildlife and peace.

    Judging by the appliances and fixtures it would seem to be livable as a summer cottage while you work on it (ok, maybe need a sheet of plywood on that bathroom floor for now). And the scale would let a homeowner do a lot.

    There’s so many great original features to work with here. The fireplace and window trim in the parlor are quite elegant considering the more simple design of the rest of the house. I hope the next owners use a light touch in their restoration and let the sense of age this house has remain.

    An small but well-fitted house in its day, this was the home of Dr. John Squire (1801-1889) on an old map. Dr. Squire was a local physician who also served as postmaster until the post office was moved to Herrick’s Store, which still stands across the road.

    Part of the Schodack Landing Historic District. From the NRHP report:
    Settled by Dutch families during the first quarter of the eighteenth century, the hamlet of Schodack Landing later became an important 18th and 19th century riverside trading community. Somnolent since 1900, the hamlet has retained, not only many of its old structures basically intact, but also the atmosphere of the historic hamlet.

    This home is so exciting! The right person with the right know how could make this a museum quality home. With this much original character still intact, all it needs is a gentle touch. Around here, it would be bought by a leasing company and quickly made into a generic renovation. I hope this lovely lady suffers no such fate.

    Wow! So much original material to work with. This one would be a gem for the right restorer, and the location is beautiful.

    I know it is getting harder and harder for today’s generation to get on the property ladder so I see this place-hopefully- being bought by a single person or couple with little money who have the resilience and determination to restore it. It won’t be easy and they will have to be creative about making do as they work on it but I think it would be 100% worth it.

    *begin daydream*

    Katrina Van Tassel walked these floorboards, glancing over her shoulder at Brom Bones and Ichabod Crane. One seethed with jealousy. The other obliviously munched on a biscuit.

    *end daydream*

    Hello all, I knew this house and the owner quite well and would be happy to answer any questions you might have about the house. It was lived in by the owner until a year ago. It did have at least one working fireplace in the living room. It does need work but one could definitely live there while renovating it. It was very much loved by the owner and I would be very happy to see someone move in there who would cherish it. I believe there is HUD money that could be gotten in the way of grants or low interest loans since it is located in a rural area. 20 minutes from downtown Albany (the state capital). Lots of employment, goods and services within 5-10 minute drive. Great town and great people. Barbara
