A New York Summer Estate Abandoned in the 1940s is the Ultimate Fixer-Upper

Wyndcliffe, in the town of Rhinebeck, New York, was one of many fine houses constructed throughout the Hudson River Valley during the 19th Century. Built in 1853 for Elizabeth Schermerhorn Jones – a relative by marriage of the Astor family – the mansion allegedly inspired the phrase “keeping up with the Joneses”. Later owned by Andrew Finck, a New York beer baron, Wyndcliffe was abandoned some time after 1950 and remains an imposing site, although the structure has finally started to collapse.
