Folks, this Edwardian ruin has been on the market. For. Ever. We first wrote about it back in 2011 when it was twice the price but still just as (if not less) weathered. Is it too late for this stunner to be rejuvenated, or is it doomed, like Norma Desmond, to forever wait for its close-up, Mr. DeMille? Certainly if we had the cash, inclination, and know-how (basically 100% of what you need to do anything), we’d be all over it. We would love to see what it could become. Sits on an acre of land near the shores of the Esopus Creek in Lake Katrine, Ulster County. You can kind of see the house from the road if you slow down and crane your neck. Here’s the thing: Its proximity to the creek puts it at high risk for flooding. This area of Kingston is known for its flooding. We wouldn’t be surprised if it has already flooded and that’s why it’s stuck on the market. We also wouldn’t be surprised if a few of you haven’t gone to look at it with an agent. If so, tell us about! We’d love some details.
