    Well it is in the town of Attica. I told my realtor I wanted something cheap and off the beaten path. So he found this and all for $25,000. Has a 400' driveway and no other houses within a half mile. Was looking at a different place but it fell thru. By next year there will be a 40'x80'x10' shop next to the house. The inside looks 10x worse then the outside.

    No where to go but up Al. 9 acres is awesome, and 7 of them wooded Sweet. Now you will be able to have lots of great posts of the house rebuid and shop build. Gonna be lots of fun...............for us to follow, as you get to do the work

    Attica? is that where the famous prison is?
    I once stayed near Attica on my way to Buffalo on business years ago. The motel was right of the thruway and was full of just women and kids,,, must of been visiting Dad.

    The land alone has got to be worth more than $25,000.
    Sure sounds like a good deal. Hope the bank gets off their butt and comes through for you.

    Are you planning to remodel the house?

    Wouldn't it be easier to build the house as a part of the shop then mess with the old house pictured? You could actually be Living in it long before you could could tear out & remodel the house.

    Not with this town. They have peeps in the office that still think a fuel truck has to fill up the windmills to keep them running.

    Yes the famuos prison is only a few minutes down the road.

    I know this might come off as heresy in this group...
    But I'd be "house first".

    Seriously, that thing looks in need of a good bulldozing.
    There's usually more than one way to do it...
