Crumbling Castle in New York's 'Scotland' Asks $179,900

New, 2 comments


For those longing for a castle to call home (read: everyone), this property in Scotland—New Scotland, New York, that is—is awaiting a knight to rescue it from its disrepair. Listed for $179,900 as a short sale, the property looks like a centuries-old pile of stone ruins; in fact, though, the structures were hand-built rather recently, in 1935, by a reclusive social activist and potter. Now the 4.5 acres are dotted with a dilapidated 2,500-square-foot home and the limestone ruins of a church, a tower, and a pottery studio, which will all appeal to someone "with a vision and sense of adventure," the broker admits to Zillow Blog.
