Historical Stone Home on Saranac River - SOLD

 

Three stories of solid field stone with a full basement (unfinished).  So much stone was used, even the basement floor is stone!  The first story consists of a new chef's kitchen (renovated 2002), 1/2 bath (in renovation process), formal dining room, hallway with maple staircase, and a nice sized living room with original crown molding and ceiling medallion.  The second story sports four bedrooms (one being a connecting nursery/office) and a full bath (renovated in 2002).  The third floor is presently unfinished, but has rough electric and plumbing already run.  This open area would make an awesome master suite/studio!  Present finished space is 1,872 square feet +/- and the third floor will add an additional 936' or slightly less, based on the location of knee walls. 

The present owners (Broker/owner) have invested a significant amount of time and money to upgrade the home to luxurious standards.  New within the last two years (as well as some other former improvements) include the following:

This unique home can support horses with your own trails over the 44+ acres.  There is a good sized original peg barn in good condition as well as several thousand board feet of rough sawn lumber for residing and/or construction of hay lofts, etc.  Two tractors are included, one with a 48" wide mower.  There is approximately 1,200' of riverfront to enjoy on the Saranac River which is super for fly fishing.  The grounds have about 10 acres of pine grove plantation ready for harvest.  Some trails through the property for X-cty, hiking or snowmobile enjoyment.  

Offered in this home is a bit of history.  This field stone home was built in Saranac (previously known as New Russia) Circa 1895 by mason Durrand who lived in Dannemora.  It was originally sold for $850 to a Dannemora merchant.  Over the years, it has seen several owners, one of which planted many acres of red and white pine trees which today present the property as if it was a maintained state park!  

Owner will finance with sufficient deposit down.  Interest rate and terms will be competitive to bank offerings.  

Offered at $349,000 (Broker/Agent Owned)


The Saranac area is an exciting area. It is central to Saranac Lake, Lake Placid, and Plattsburgh, which is undergoing a revitalization including Lake Champlain shoreline development, and the prospect of a new NASCAR race track at the presently in use Clinton Country Airport.  The FAA has committed funding for the old Plattsburgh Air Force Base (closed about 7-8 years ago) to turn it into a commercial airport.  The base sports a 12,000' runway and can handle 747 Jumbo traffic which would put it into position for trans-oceanic flights!  Lowe's has just opened a 115,000 square foot store and their business volume is better then forecast.  

Saranac is situated just 15 miles west of Plattsburgh, 45 minutes from Lake Placid / Whiteface Mountain, 30 minutes from Saranac Lake and about an hour or so from Montreal.  We believe this to be the ONLY stone home in the town of Saranac!
