I planned to write about this Onteora Park Estate before Irene hit. I haven’t been to visit since, but when I head Upstate tonight, I plan to take a drive through lovely, enviable Onteora to see how it fared.
This 1890 home is made of solid stuff: original wide plank floors, stone fireplaces, double-hung windows and even ornate door hinges. There are established perennial gardens throughout the 1.5 acre property, and 4 porches. I hope this pretty piece of history made it through the storm.
Asking Price: $499,000
Year Built: 1890
Distance to NYC:123 miles, 2 hrs, 35 mins
