Welcome to the Nellis Homestead.
Nelliston NY was founded by Andrew Nellis, the Nellis family settled in the Town of Palatine in 1722. The Dairy Farm and home were built and run by the Nellis Family from that time to the present. The property is conveniently located off the New York State Throughway, NYS Route 80 and NYS Route 10. Now this beautiful farm and property is for sale awaiting its new owner.
The property is comprised of multiple parcels acquired over the years by the family members totaling 202 acres. There is 170 tillable acres, 27 acres of pasture and 5 acres woods. The farmland has been drain tiled throughout. Beautiful mountain views in every direction.
Its amazing limestone-built home is still as strong and stable today as the day it was built. This beautiful home is awaiting some love to restore it back to its glory days. Many original details throughout the home add to its beauty and character. The home includes 3500 sq. ft. living area with 15 rooms, 6 BR, 2 baths, kitchen, an enclosed porch, two outside stone porches, and a full basement making it the perfect home for all imaginations.
Its proximity to historic Cooperstown (approx. 45 minutes), the beautiful village of Sharon Springs (20 minutes) and numerous vineyards and breweries, this would make for the perfect Bed and Breakfast. You can live in half of the home while renting out the other half to tourists.
If teaching is your calling, this would make a perfect educational facility to teach youngsters the art farming and raising farm animals. The original barn and newer addition can house approximately 120 cattle as well as 6 additional pens to house a variety of other animals. The 3 story barn, built in 1830 with hand hewed beams, and numerous outbuildings can easily be converted to accommodate any type of livestock.
Whether you are looking to farm the property yourself or looking for an amazing business opportunity, this homestead will accommodate all your needs and desires.
