    Actually in the Town of Westerlo, Albany Co. The old maps show this as the farm of Samuel Mabie (1792-1870), whose family moved to this area from the lower Hudson Valley just after the Revolution. At the time, the land was part of the Manor of Rensselaerswyck, whose agents leased land to farmers on terms which encouraged improvement of the land and construction of homes. The Manor was mostly sold off to tenants in the 1840’s, ending 200 years of feudal control.
    Samuel Mabie had 100 acres here, an average farm with a variety of food crops and grain, plus 30 sheep for wool to sell. Mabie and his wife Hannah Knowles raised their 5 children here and lived out their days on the farm.
    The house appears to date from around 1830 with later additions. It’s a mess now but this could be a fine old-style farmstead or weekend retreat once fixed up. The 20+ acres extends across the road so the view is protected. The $79k price is hard to beat!

    This is probably too late to be seen by most, but I have visited this property, as a friend who is relocating to the area is considering purchasing it. The reason for the incredible pricing is not so much the trash which is strewn all over, but the fact that the house had been used as an animal potty. The dining room floor is severely warped from animal urine, there are (or were a week ago) overflowing litter boxes upstairs, and the smell is beyond imagining.

    Regardless, the house seems structurally sound and has a multitude of early details, including mostly sound plaster walls. We are researching solutions for getting rid of the horrific smell, and if anyone has ideas, please share them! I don’t know how “absorbent” the plaster walls are in regard to smell, but it would be a shame to have to rip them out to get rid of it.

    We will be looking at the property again in a day or so, and if anyone is interested, we’ll keep you updated. This could be a wonderful before & after of a deserving old house, so fingers crossed it works out!
