Property Description

The Burrell Overlook  Mansion is located on the remnants of a large late nineteenth century farmstead occupying a high bluff above the city of Little Falls, NY and is one of the most architecturally-significant historic properties in the Mohawk Valley. The mansion was built in 1886-1889 by inventor and engineer D.H. Burrell, who was ahead of his time, and the integration of self-sustaining hydroelectric power into the mansion was a testament to Burrell's ingenuity and engineering skill. The "dynamo" Burrell built remains intact and functional in the mansion today though it is not currently used to generate power. 

The Burrell estate consists of approximately fifteen acres with three additional buildings including a carriage house and a garage. The mansion itself sits on a level plateau that was created by removing limestone from the side of the mountains directly behind the house in a vertical limestone cliff face which extends as high as the roof line of Overlook. This extraordinary property was recently restored with impeccable attention to detail, and is currently operated as a successful bed and breakfast and event center.

Buyers will have the option to purchase the three bedroom Carriage House on approx. 6 acres for an additional $175,000.
