The Skinny: For all outward appearances, this gambrel-roofed Upstate New York estate looks like it hasn't been touched since an addition was added in 1904. There's that giant tree rising just steps from the front porch, rustic stone gates that mark the entrance to the 13.3-acre plot, and a rutted grass driveway that looks more appropriate for non-motorized vehicles. Frankly, things don't get very modern on the inside, but there's nothing wrong with that when it means pristine preservation of the house's historic details, some of which date from the original construction in the 1850s. The house has been maintained by the same family since 1894, who were responsible for the construction of the picture-perfect carriage house. For just under $1M, this compound is quite a deal, especially considering it's located a little over one hour's drive from NYC.
