Most recently an antique store, this Jefferson storefront is rough-around-the-edges, but stands ready to be renewed. 

This c.1860s storefront – sitting on an overgrown plot of land in the southern Schoharie County village of Jefferson, NY – could use a new lease on life. Convert it into a private residence, or use for its originally-intended commercial purposes. Before you venture further, however, be warned: There be clutter afoot. Lots and lots of clutter.

For 50 grand, the property includes a location right in Jefferson village, 1,760 square feet of interior space, two offices, and a reception area. The building has served in a number of capacities over the years, including auto body shop, clothing store, and, as is evidenced by the listing photos, an antique store. There’s also a half-bath and an attached garage for even more space.

In this case, more space means more stuff, and the sale of the property comes with the opportunity to take all of the merchandise. Got picking on your mind? You never know what valuable treasures might be hiding among all of this stuff. Or, gut it and start again with a fresh interior and restored, Greek-Revival-style facade.

Jefferson is situated about eight miles north of Stamford village in northern Delaware County, and about a half-hour’s drive from Oneonta, NY.
