Located in a village of about 700 people is this fixer upper farmhouse for sale on 1.88 acres with a carriage house. The six bedroom, two bath home needs work, but who can resist a Second Empire? Help the empire strike back!
They do not build houses like this anymore! Many original features have been preserved in this unique property. This large 16 room manor house complete with a 2-story carriage house can’t be missed as you drive up the hill on Main Street in the village of Antwerp or if you’re across the street at beautiful Memorial Park. This home has enough space to be used as a multi-family home and the second story of the carriage house was set up from previous owners for two apartments which can be restored with minimal work. Most of the plumping in the main home has been updated. The sprawling 1.89-acre corner lot has a lot of open space and road frontage. The current owner keeps 2 horses on the property as farm animals and livestock are permitted with over 1 acre of land. The large attic space has been rumored to have been a hiding place for runaway slaves and was part of the underground railroad. The third story is something unusual with a very tall 18-foot ceiling and high windows. It is a sight to be behold. The current owners have a large room set up with a stage and a separate large room used as a music room complete with an antique piano left by the family who built this home in the1800’s. With original handmade doors, molding, woodwork, windows and chandeliers, it’s like visiting a different time period. This really is a must see! Some minor work is still needed, and the home is sold as is. This could be a great investment for a buyer who intends to create an income from the property. This property could easily be converted to a bed and breakfast, a multi-unit property or a venue space. This could also be a great home for a large family with many children or a hobby farm. With some vision and elbow grease the possibilities are endless.
