Farmhouse Friday: Epic Mansions Under $1 Million

Sometimes the curb appeal of a house doesn’t match the interior, and today we have two examples of amazing mansions for reasonable prices that fit into this category. We would like to see quite a bit of redecorating inside each of these homes, but let’s focus on the good instead.

Upstate New York: New Hartford, NY

The area surrounding Utica has a special place in our hearts after spending four years at Hamilton College, so I was excited to see this gigantic stone castle for sale in New Hartford.  The interior isn’t necessarily our tastes, but I can’t get enough of the stone walls and archways. I also love the little stone outbuilding and mix of glass and stone for the sunroom/greenhouse.

New England: Manchester, VT

This oversize New England colonial mansion has amazing architectural details and grounds. The wide front porch with structural columns, the perfectly manicured lawn and back gardens, the white picket fence – there’s a lot to love about this home’s exterior. The interior, however, does not maintain as many of the charming period details and features a redone/modernized kitchen and decor. I’d love to see the inside of this beautiful home rehabbed with more recycled materials that harken back to the time it was built.
