1803 Glenville Original Broom Corn Farm

839 Amsterdam Rd, Schenectady, NY 12302, USA
$450,000

Description

This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and the possibilities are endless!
Only owned by 4 families, it was built in 1803 by the Boyd family originally sitting on about 200 acres. It became the successful early broomcorn farm of Reuben Ellsworth from 1845-1857. From 1857-1979 it was owned by the extended Cramer/McMichael family who also grew broomcorn, later switching to dairy and beef. They sold it with 24 acres to the current owners in 1979 who were not farmers, but they maintained the barns and fields. They want the property to be preserved by future owners.
The house is built into a slight bank with the kitchen and beamed family room on the 1st floor to the back. A grand center hall and large rooms with 10′ ceilings are on the 1st floor to the front.  There are 4 fireplaces (2 coal and 2 wood) and a woodstove. A large butler’s pantry is located off the dining room and could easily become a 2nd kitchen. The floor plan could accommodate an extended family or an in-law situation.
Standing are 7 iconic barns, a lattice well house, a milk house, a corn crib, the hired man’s house, and the original brick smokehouse. The fields were recently planted in corn, it is wonderful river bottom soil.
Centrally located, just west of the village of Scotia on a main road and minutes to 890 and the Thruway,  a 1/2 hour to Albany and 45 minutes to Saratoga
