    No!! We must see inside! Perfectly creepy enough to take on no matter what it needs or looks like inside.

      Streetview from 2012 seems to show many windows missing glass, which appear to have been replaced since then. Could be that someone purchased the long-vacant house and started repairs, but have decided not to go further. I hope that we are able to learn more about this house, you can tell that it was really grand back in the day and could be again.

    I am sad to see a house like this sit empty and abused. It needs the siding removed to expose the original clapboards and see if there were any porches or stoops that have been removed to be replaced. I’d love to see what the interior looks like.

        owners moved out last month.sadly they did not have the means or nohow to take care of this home. We went today – she needs a roof BADLY- but the main foundation, woodwork, stairs, etc… are SOLID – she could be so pretty again. set son almost two acres with a babbling creek. The crown moldings and solid wood french doors are amazing — they are 12 ft ceilings on 1st floor and 9 or 10 on 2nd floor. 3rd floor need works as does widows peak. Present owners are somewhat “hoarders” so hard to see beyond alot of the stuff there. But she is solid- and basement is huge! Old photo shows its missing the front porch and 2nd floor balcony. I wish I could take it on—but can not.

    “My heart feared the terror lurking nearby: ‘Let me in! Let me in! Oh, please let me in!!!!’ Was that my heart pounding or was it my clenched fist on the door? Am I just dreaming or is this a nightmare?! The tall, arched doors slowly creaked open, decades of dust released like phantoms into the chilling night air. My foot inched its way over the threshold. I peered into the darkness within and my eyes grew large at the sight before me. I couldn’t believe what I saw. It was . . . . ., it was . . . . . . ”

    Well, the price certainly won’t scare anyone away. And what “items do not convey with home”? Hmmm. Such mysteries just waiting to be revealed. 👀

    I love this, and I want it to be as perfectly creepy on the inside as it looks on the outside *insert heart eyes emoji*. I was at the Haunted Mansion at Disney last week and told my friend I wanted one of my own, this one could be it lol.

    I literally gasped with excitement when I saw the post and then sighed with disappointment when I saw there was only one picture. This is totally my dream house. I would almost make the trip to New York to see it. Instead of being scared by creepy houses like this I have been drawn to them since I was a little kid. I hope they come up with some interior pictures. In the meantime I’ll use my imagination.

      Me too. To me this style home is never creepy, especially when abandoned. Its just a beautiful house that is in need of restoration. Then again, I never watched old scary movies or TV shows that have given this house a bad name. So I don’t instantly associate this style with the Addams family for example by default like many people do. But that’s the world we live in now. Hollywood gave these homes a bad rep.

        Agree 100%, MJG. The only spooky thing about this place is how ravaged it might be inside — that and the blood-sucking future flipper who drains all the architectural history out of this potential dream.

    Just emailed the listing agent. Their site shows build date of 1820 😍 I like the style, hope it’s in good condition. Street view didn’t show much and satellite may be showing roof problems?

    Any way you slice it, I’ve now shown interest so you KNOW someone will put in an offer in 3…2…1… 😆

      Great info GearGirl. My guess is that there is no way this particular house is from 1820. Probably updated years later because this style wasn’t out yet. Possibly the original house was added or altered.

      I’m so glad you emailed the listing agent. They may get more response from old house lovers if they post more photos.

    I’ve been fascinated with creepy old houses with towers since I was a little kid and watched “The Applegate Treasure” on the original Mickey Mouse Club. I think that this house would intrigue the Hardy Boys, LOL…hopefully there will be enough interest in this house that the seller and listing agent will add some interior pictures.

    The residence of Samuel Jerome Mack (1826-1908) was built about 1875 on the site of the old home and tavern of early settler William Stevens, which was moved into town. Mack was a merchant in grain and lumber, and owned a farm as well. He formed a bank in 1868, sold out and started another.

    A small image of the house on this 1885 panoramic map – far right toward the rear:

    It’s a spectacular house, but 1808 square feet seems impossibly small. That being said, it’s scale seems a little more doable than some of these grand old decaying mansions we see. With the multi-colored slate and those doors intact, I’d think there would be a good chance that there’s a lot left to work with here. Maybe the agent will add pictures? We can only hope.

      The county lists it as 3600sf. I thought 1808 seemed too small as well! There is a house down the street that from the satellite looks like a practically identical footprint, and it is 4000+sf.

    I got an email back from the listing agent, with photos. I’ve messaged Kelly with the information 🙂

    I had really high hopes for this one, as the one two houses down the road looks identical and gorgeous. I also noticed that from the satellite view, they have the same footprint and number of stories, yet the one down the street is listed as 4000+ square feet (no it’s not for sale lol). I went to the county assessor site and THIS property is listed as 3600sf. I tend to believe it is probably closer to 3600 than the 1800 the listing agent indicated.

    Also, the street view image I saw (If you go to google maps right now and look) appears to be from 2018. There is a house at Seneca and Rude St that was for sale by Post Realty in the street view that was from 2018.

        I’ll be patiently awaiting!! They should post pic’s. Even if in rough shape, there could be some architectural pieces left that can be implemented in the restoration.

      Taxes are way higher lol! I’m on the assessor’s site right now, here’s what I’ve found so far:

      County Tax: $713.48 (Includes college, Town, Brutus Fire protection, County)
      School Tax: $956.21
      Library Tax: $9.68

      Taxes: $1679.37

      All this based on assessed value of $62,200
      Note that they are getting the STAR discount, too (applies to full time residents) so they don’t actually pay the School Tax.

  15. So pretty–can’t wait to see the interior pics. Hope it hasn’t been split into apartments.

    I would love to take it apart and truck it to my pond in Michigan. Place it on a basement and get into custom mill-work. Also a question, it the rounded front door frame consistent with 2nd Empire? It is mostly seen by me in Tudor homes.

    The agent never responded to my email about posting the photos (and I assume also forwarding them…?) It’s a $20k priced house, expect a $20k house? From the few pics Gear showed me, it’s really not as far gone as I’ve posted in the past. 1960’s kitchen, unpainted newel post and bannister (typical style of the period), one of the pics shows some water damage and missing plaster in a small corner of the ceiling. I see a peek of an arched, possibly double doors between rooms. There’s so much stuff, I see why the agent did not to include photos in the listing although it’s not as bad as we’ve seen before, stuff wise.

      too hard to get photos because of all the stuff- there is a lot. I went today and do have some photos. roof is the most worrisome thing right now–its pretty much open. But the 1st floor has so much original work that is still great and holding up–but wont too much longer if they do not repair roof. The doors are massive 10 feet tall – 12 foot ceilings, and huge crown molding. The staircase is SOLID and in one piece – not marred up at all. Kitchen and back porch addition probably 1960’s. the basement was quite impressive too and a total walk out. Even has the old “octopus” furnace (not in use). She is a beauty!

      This home is in good hands, and will be restored properly. There was a garage sale to empty what the hoarders left. People went crazy sneaking in the house running out worth boxes of stuff. The house is empty and is to be winterized for now and the home will be renovated in the near future. A lot of the original grandeur is still there but this house needs a lot of work. A family is to be moving into the house, but they are fairly private people.
