Talk Amongst Yourselves! Part of this house isn’t bad. Part of this house is bad. What is the stuff on the ceiling? Insulation as clouds? Would a bed go under that? I like the sign that says, the not so great, great room. The house was built in 1888. It is located on 1.80 acres in Gloversville, New York. This was originally a women’s boarding house. Ten bedrooms, two bathrooms and 4,736 square feet. $229,900
