Put a bid in on the house and 24 acres. So we'll go back and forth and come to some agreement, I'm sure. Did find the little stream down back, was good to get the wet boot off finally! In a little town called Smyrna, in Chenango County. I don't know how to put a link up but it's here. and it's number 53771. Someone smarter here can do it maybe and you can see what we're doing. Not sure how long we'll keep it as I think it's an easy fix and sell for some $. Or fix and keep. We'll see how it goes.

Love the place!!
I have a stream 50meters from my house also, with huge boulders in it.
Can't wait to have it ready to move back in, still a lot of work to do there.
My dad's home is in the same lot as ours, he's renting it to us to be close to our own home and try to finish it sooner.

I hope everything works out for you the way you're planning.

Whatsa matter'th that? Looks like you got a apple tree right out front for the robins to nest in.
What's the nearest town with a recognizable name?

Les, I guess Syracuse is to the west and north a bit. Binghamton south. Lost myself out there.

New York state is nice. It sure is big compared to NH or CT.

Quite a few apple trees around. Need to get them back in shape. Out the back a few largewr ash trees will need to come down and gets you quite a view of the distant hills. Already have the outside fixed up in my mind. Easy to do though Les when that's what I do for a living! Even has a good size workshop with it's own deck.

Lenore, thanks for doing the picture for me. We've been looking on that website for a while. Just sold our land a few weeks ago, 50 acres. This house always kept coming up and always looked cute to us. The deck goes around the side and all the way around the back. With a wood fired hot tub on it.

It's a fine house and with 24 acres I suspect you'll find a way to fix it up and keep it.

Cindi, when I was talking to my realtor we were talking also about the possibilty of fixing it up and selling it. The fixing part is painting and replacing a few boards here and there and for me cutting down some trees to get the distant views back. Smaller house and is painted VERY dark colors and the trees have grown up in the last 20 years to block everythnig. We were talking about the value when we get it done and would probably put it on the market for $125,000. We're probably going to end up paying $70,000-$75,000 for it if we get it. Even if the realtor exagerated it still leaves some good money with minimal work and money out of pocket. We'll see when we get it painted up. Could be a way for us to make money, especially in the winter when I can go stay at a place for extended periods of time and fix things up.
