Seventy years ago, Carleton Manor in St. Vincent, New York was abandoned. Chances are with no living residents to frighten, the resident spirits got tired of waiting for someone to move in and may have moved on. Or they may still be waiting and hovering inside the falling ceilings or up the chimneys, bunking up with the ravens nesting there. Frightening looking without restoration, it doesn’t take much imagination to see what a stunning mansion this once was and could be again - for a restoration outlay of millions. When it was constructed in 1895 for the president of Remington Arms and Typewriter Company, William O. Wyckoff, Carleton Manor was one of the grandest structures in all of New York. The solid stone outer structure sits on an island, is comprised of 6.9 acres and is surrounded by almost a thousand feet of waterfront. For a mere $495,000, the buyer willing to make this piece of history into a grand restoration project, can turn this house from a nightmare into a dream home. Then the spirits could come down from the ceiling and the chimneys for more cushy digs and have fun throwing the good china around after midnight.
