Comfortably nestled within the Mohawk Valley in upstate New York, the Burrell Overlook Mansion is seemingly untouched by time. This former farmstead built between 1886-1889 was the home of inventor and engineer D.H. Burrell. Burrell, a quirky genius in his own right, paired the Victorian mansion with a self-sustaining hydroelectric power generator that amazingly remains functional to this day. But while the mansion once served as a playground for madcap ideas, today it operates as a peaceful bed and breakfast and historical hideaway for those passing through the valley. And now, for a mere $725,000, you can make this beauty your very own personal retreat.

The Overlook Mansion was rescued from decay in 2009 by a local Little Falls resident who restored the property to its proper Victorian state. The three-story mansion features 12 bedrooms and nine bathrooms steeped in incredible architectural details. Each of the rooms are charming and elegant and decked out with elaborate headboards, ornate fireplace mantels, impeccable wood floors, and plenty of other historic eye candy.

Given its position perched atop a high bluff above Little Falls, nearly every bedroom offers a breathtaking view of the surrounding mountains and town below. The aptly named “Balcony Suite” makes viewing the landscape an even more stunning experience.

The entire estate consists of 15 acres completed by a carriage house and a garage. For an additional $175,000 you can incorporate these two structures–and the six acres they sit on–into your property to fully live out your Victorian fantasy.
