What do you do when you can’t sleep? I take my laptop into bed and search the Internet for old houses on the market (you could have guessed that).
Look what I found last night: a gray-and-red 1840 farmhouse on 50 acres, on a quiet road with two ponds and a far-reaching view of rolling hills.
It’s in Gilboa, N.Y. , half an hour west of the Rip Van Winkle bridge — three hours from Manhattan’s Upper West Side, 3-1/2 from Brooklyn — and “over the mountain” from the Windham ski area.
The listing agent, Claudia Zucker of Living Structures Real Estate, says there’s not a lot of original interior detail, but maybe you can live with that. Overall condition is good. Taxes are around $2,000/year (for all that property!)
Stay tuned for more pictures, here and on the MLS site. It’s been on the market only two weeks. If it’s as good as it looks, it won’t be there long.
What would YOU do with fifty (50) acres?!?
