104 Helderberg Castle Rd, New Scotland, NY

The limestone ruins look ancient, like something abandoned by its residents hundreds of years ago along a misty loch in Scotland. The property, however, is not across the Atlantic but in upstate New York, most fittingly located in the town of New Scotland. The ruins are not as ancient, either.

The estate at 104 Helderberg Castle Road was built in 1935 by the reclusive Bouck White, a potter and Socialist activist. Located on 4.5 acres, the property also includes a contemporary 2,500-square-foot home, but the castle ruins, a pottery studio and various other outbuildings are the most intriguing selling points.

The property is listed at $179,900, available as a short sale, and listing agent Brian Brosen doesn't mince words about the type of work it requires, saying the buyer will need to be someone "with a vision and sense of adventure."
