Here is a gorgeous massive home that is abandoned at the corner of First Street and South Miller. The front entrance is actually on South Miller, but for some strange reason the address looks like it is registered on First Street. Finally a home that has a phone # outside for those of you interested in purchasing one of these homes. The number looks to be: 845-728-3303.
From the photo it looks like there used to be a porch surrounding the entrance. The left side addition could be a house just in itself. The house in the rear was for sale last year and also has gorgeous details. It was supposedly bought but remains in the same condition. And, there is a nice cobblestone driveway in the rear of the house.
A trip to the library or historical society would probably reveal original photos of this home as well as some information about the original owners. RESCUE ME! For inspiration, check out this amazing transformation of another house in despair.
