The Berman Estate in the Town of Fallsburg is being auctioned with 'no reserve' (no floor price) on Nov. 6th. The 170 acre property includes a 9.000+ sq. ft. main house, a carriage/guest house, a caretaker house, inground swimming pool, tennis courts, horse paddocks and a mile of frontage on the Neversink River. The property is listed for sale at $3.9M. Property taxes total approximately $60,000 per year.
This auction comes on the heels of last month's auction of a 10,000+ sq. ft. lakefront home at the Chapin Estate that according to what I've picked up on the grapevine, went for $3.5M. (I'm waiting for the sold property record to come through to confirm.) That was well below the replacement cost for that house.
