Description

BACK ON MARKET - Contact LIsting Agent directly for exact information and status - Bank had approved short sale, BUT, there are challenges a buyer needs to be willing to deal with. Historic Helderberg Castle, built by hand by renowned author, minister and potter Bouck White this is a truly one of a kind property, not only in New York State, but the entire country. Situated on 4.5 acres overlooking the Capital District, this property offers a rare opportunity to become the next caretaker of Bouck Whites dream. Sitting on the grounds are the ruins of several limestone buildings erected as part of his castle complex. The most striking of which is the viewing tower, with its dramatic 360 degree views from atop. There are also ruins of the main house, church and steam room on sight, along with an old stone well. The main living quarters are a 3 level, 2500sf home. This home sits atop the ruins of two stone structures, the remains after a fire destroyed a portion of the property in 1945. The home has 2 bedrooms(very spacious), winding staircase, stone walls, woodstove, and a nice 3rd floor with kitchen/dining area and living room, all set to capture the views that surround you on this private estate. The home has beautiful old stone stairs, stone alcove, balcony...the sale of the property is contingent upon short sale approval by the bank. This is a rare and magnificent opportunity for the right buyer/buyers - a true chance to be one with nature, one with unique architecture and to be a custodian of a visionaries dream.
