Finish Fixing Up this Schoharie Valley Vintage Colonial for $89,900

  |  December 28, 2018

Rural Schoharie County, located west of Albany, is home to Revolutionary War history, rolling agrarian landscapes, and this c.1820 vintage Colonial house…

…and, it’s offered at a listing price that can’t be beat. Old house enthusiasts and restorers should take a closer look at the details here, like wide plank flooring, two fireplaces, exposed beams, and original woodwork and details. With this right restoration, this house could sparkle.

In spite of its need for a liberal dose of TLC, the house looks to be in decent condition and includes 2,640 square feet, five bedrooms, and two baths. Everything is needed here in terms of appliances, and the baths come with fixtures but need remodels.

The two-acre property also boasts the most adorable red barn shed we’ve ever seen, as well as a large garage.

Schoharie, NY is located about 45 minutes west of Albany and about 45 minutes north of Windham Mountain. Nestled at the top end of the picturesque Schoharie Valley, the property is surrounded by reminders of the area’s ties to the Revolutionary War. The battles of Breakabeen, Old Stone Fort, and Lower Fort took place in Schoharie, where farms grew the wheat that supplied sustenance to General George Washington’s army during the war. These days, the largely-agriculture area sees tourism thanks to Howe Caverns, Vroman’s Nose hiking trail, and nearby breweries and farm markets.

This property is about a mile away from historic Schoharie village.
