Classic Adirondack farmhouse built in 1890, and built to last. 8 Bedrooms, 1 full bath, kitchen with large pantry with built in shelves and a dumbwaiter, and 3 staircases! The acreage is perfect for those looking to "live off of their land", as it is completely set up for agricultural uses, and views of Moxham Mt are just a few tree fellings away. The barn is definitely in need of TLC, even more than is needed by the home, but the barnsiding is gorgeous and could easily be repurposed. The zoning for this area is 3.2 Acre, so subdivision is possible. Located less than 5 minutes from North Creek, and 10 minutes from Gore Mt. So many possibilites, are just your dream away!

    OK, I’ll go first. I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything quite like this. Maybe I’m not familiar with the Adirondack style. I can see underneath all the wall paper and grim the potential for a very lovely, quirky and unusual house.

    I am so charmed by this. All those tin roofs. That barn siding. And inside the house, a stovepipe that exits through a window curtain, right around the corner from a bathtub. What appears to be a wallpaper-topped cabinet. Lots of wonderful old wood, inc a variety of built-ins. I’d remove as little of the existing wallpaper as possible. There probably are few if any patterns I would have selected but something makes me want to cherish all of it anyway. And in one room, that tall and lanky figure outlined in the wallpaper? My first thought was of Ichabod Crane. He stays. Many bare incandescent bulbs hanging from ceilings. A tied-back-to-an-old-bed-frame window curtain. I’d love to know the story of the people who live here and why they are selling.
    If I had much deeper pockets and “world enough and time,” well, who knows?
    2020 Property taxes were $316, with an assessed value of $91,800.

  3. No thank you to the house, but I’ll take the 4 sewing machines I saw in there. If there are more than 4, I’ll take them as well.
