It is a shame what this New York Queen Anne Victorian fixer upper has become. When we lived outside this town on an 15-acre farmette in the late 1980s, I would drive past this home often and admire it. My husband worked at one end of Grand Street, and I had a short stint as a waitress at the Bulls Head Inn at the other end. The property is located opposite the fairgrounds and offers a tower, seven bedrooms, three baths, hardwood floors, gorgeous fireplace, and carriage house, but sadly, the whole property appears nothing like it did in the eighties. The town is charming, though, and has all the amenities.
This is a massive historic beauty that can once again be the most GRAND home in the village with your tools and love. Many original features are calling for someone to reclaim them. This currently has 7 bedrooms and the 3rd floor is set up as an in-law apartment with 3 bedrooms. This home is beautifully situated across from the entrance to Cobleskill Fair grounds and walking distance to all the village has to offer. This home requires building permits to renovate and there are a number of options for this home. Multi family, B&B, single family and more. You must see this home to envision the potential and bring this historic beauty back to life. This can once again be the GRANDEST home in the village. Home and Garage will be cleaned out by closing.

The video below drives past where my husband used to work (0.36) n Mineral Springs Road. I was hoping the driver would take a right at the next intersection. That would be Grand Street. Looks like he did turn there, but skipped the section where this house is located. he jumps to Grand Street on the other side of Main Street.
