I Found the 1.7 Halloween Mansion in Real Life (and it's for sale)

  1. Remember way back during the 1.7 world's time as the main world, when a few of us collaborated with Astro (I think?) on a huge spooky mansion for Halloween, then decorated it for Christmas (I think?) instead?

    I was looking at the latest posts from the Facebook page For The Love of Old Houses, and did a double-take... I instantly recognized the mansion!

    It's called the Carleton Island Villa, and a Google Images search for it reveals plenty of pictures. Sadly, it's been abandoned for a long time and is falling down, but the old pictures are beautiful.
    This mansion is a classic example of American late-Victorian Tudor-Revival architecture. The island is located by the US/Canada Border, where the St. Lawrence River empties to Lake Ontario of the Great Lakes, near the cities of Watertown, New York and Kingston, Ontario.

    It looms eerily behind a more typical and well-kept New York farmhouse.

    As a historic preservationist (I'm actually studying that in college now btw), I'm sad to see the place in such a decrepit condition and unlikely to be standing much longer. But it's so awesome that we have our own version of it here on Iciclecraft! Definitely a keeper for the upcoming memorial world.

  2. Ye that's the one we referenced remember lol, but cool find. Albeit, not sure if anyone wants an old run-down mansion that's haunted by ghost of the first owner's wife ;)
