Looking for an elegant, historic home with land? A getaway from the city? A year-round home? This is it!
Located in the Mohawk Valley of Upstate New York, just west of the village of Fonda. A New York State marker identifies this site as the Revolutionary War Lt. Colonel Volkert Veeder’s homestead property and a small family cemetery.
Veeder’s original 18th-century dwelling was likely repurposed into the construction of this mid-19th century home which has been painstakingly and carefully restored over the past 20 years. It is a classic 1860’s Italianate farmhouse sitting on a knoll on 25 + mostly wooded acres with a year-round stream.
Fantastic light beams through the house showcasing the 11′ ceilings, original wide board floors, moldings, doors, and 2 over 2 windows. There are 3 interior staircases to the 2nd floor giving the house the possibility of a variety of uses. A 3rd-floor walk-up cupola offers amazing views all around.
This building is qualified and worthy of being placed on the Historic Registry if the new owner desires. The current owner has offered to help with the process.
It’s only minutes to the Thruway and an hour to Albany or Saratoga.
