Welcome to Under $100K Sunday!

What old house lover doesn’t admire a Gothic Revival? While we may have preferred the original board and batten siding, original center gable window and exuberant gingerbread associated with the exterior of this style, the homes still exudes enough character to charm.

Although the realtor states the home’s build date as 1900, we know that is incorrect as 4 Chestnut Street is pictured on an 1865 map of Potsdam I found (see below pic in top left corner). I can only pinpoint the owner of the home as far back as 1920, when Harry Hammond, a cattle buyer, lived there with his sister Edna, her husband Harry Nutta, an electrical engineer, and their two children George and Byron.



Brand new roof! Gothic Revival riced $6,0000 below the recently appraised value (with the old roof). Large single-family home with 4 bedrooms/ 1.5 baths also includes a small 1 bed/ 3/4 bath apartment with separate entrance that may/may not be used as multi-family. When you walk in to the foyer you’ll appreciate the high ceilings and original woodwork. A brick fireplace with gas insert is the focal point of the spacious living room. The formal dining room feature built-in shelving and a bay window with decorative windows. Most of the home has original hardwood flooring. The kitchen opens to a screened in porch. The first floor powder room features a pedestal sink.

The second floor has 4+ bedrooms, a full baths, and a bright sunroom overlooking the pine trees. A walk-up attic provides plenty of storage space. The cedar shake siding has been recently painted. Only minutes away from schools, shopping, restaurants and downtown. Whether you are looking for a large home on a lovely street, or if you want a tenant to help pay your mortgage, this home is worth seeing. *Priced below the below the recent appraisal price*
