This significant Park Avenue home emanates historic Saranac Lake throughout. Originally the Todd Cottage, was designed by Coulter & Westhoff in the craftsman style albeit on an imposing scale. Grand entry, ballroom and dining area create the space for a potential fantastic entertaining area. 9′ ceilings in both first and second floors add to the spaciousness, 4 fireplaces, a 2 car attached garage with direct entry to home. New 50 yr architectural shingle roof was installed in August. Updating needed throughout to restore the charm.

Large outside area for family to play and enjoy in an area of fine and well kept large homes. Third floor 2 bedroom apartment can help supplement the mortgage and cosmetic restoration. Eligible for FHA 203K Rehabilitation loan and NY Historic District tax benefits. “Saranac Lake’s earliest surviving cure porch conceived as an integral. internal element of a cottage’s design” (see “Cure Cottages of Saranac Lake”,p.159) Motivated seller.
