Friday Real Estate Porn: Rosendale Manor

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The most expensive property in Rosendale would barely buy a two-bedroom in my neighborhood, but up here you get 40 acres with several lovely houses on them for $799,000. It’s a pretty great property, close enough to walk to town but plenty rural (although abutting 87 on the backside). Here’s a snippet of the description: “This fantastic property features a 5-6 bedroom main residence, a 2,000 plus sqft guest house and a 3,000 sqft studio. Home is graced with 9 foot ceilings and large open entertaining rooms. Additionally, there’s also a 3 BR home with 3 full baths, a welcoming entry space and fireplace make this a charming rental or guest house.”

So, this one really is a candidate for sharing, as long as someone doesn’t mind taking up residence in the log cabin instead of the main house. Even with all it has to offer, the place looks outdated, and the kitchen needs an overhaul. Still, and intriguing possibility if I could get a few other families to go in on it with me! Stats on the jump.

  1. The price went down. It’s possible it could take a few more cuts, based on all the updating the houses need.
