If you’re into motorcycles (or reality TV), you know this property. You’ve seenits massive garage on Orange County Choppers and American Choppers. Both shows starred the homeowner,Paul Teutul Sr., a cantankerous master mechanic who worked-and feuded-with his headstrong sonswhile producing awe-inspiring rides.

Now, the patriarch of the high-octane family hasput his part-farm, part-garage estateon the market for$2.9 million.

Located in Montgomery, NY,the propertyincludes a two-story showcase garage and a separate working garage suitable for the most discriminating car aficionado or hobbyist. There are two apartments over the showcase garage.

There’s something for everyone here, says listing agent Seta Tunell of Sotheby’s International Realty.

There’salso a log cabinstyle main residence, weather vanetopped red barn with multiple bays, andseveral outbuildings to accommodate farm animals. Teutul has cows, donkeys, horses, pot bellied pigs and alpacas, among otherfurry friends.

Montgomery is in Orange County, which is about 70 milesoutside of New York City. Less famous than the West Coast O.C., this locale proved confusing to some viewers. On one episode, Teutul got a prominent tattoo to set those straight who thought he and the show were based in Southern California.

Teutul’s 38-acreproperty features woods, waterfalls, meadows, and a stocked pond.There’s alsoa pool with spa and water features, pool house, gazebo, hot tub, volley ball court, and patios equipped with Viking grills.

Teutul, 68, built choppers and sparred with his sons on reality TV from 2002 to 2014. He continues to work on custom bikes, cars, and designs, andassists animal rescue organizations, including advocating for no-kill shelters. He’s currently shooting a new show on the property, and when that’s done, he hopes to say a fond farewell to it.

He’s reached a point in his life where he doesn’t need as much as he once thought he did, Tunell says. He doesn’t spend as much time here as he used to, and thinks it’s time for someone else to enjoy it. He’ll probably end up with a mini version of this.

What Do Baby Boomers Really Want in Their Next Homes?

What Baby Boomers Want in Their Next Homes

It’s all about millennials these days. Everything seems to center around these special snowflakes. But what about the original me generation? We’re talking about baby boomers, of course. What do these roughly 76 millionAmericans want when it comes to housing?

Well, they wantmulticar garages, for one thing. According to a recent survey by national homebuilder PulteGroup,theywere the top feature boomers were looking for in a new home, followed by open decks or patios; eat-in kitchens; and a private yard.

About 38% of boomers plan to buy a home within the next three years, according tothe report.About 11% expect to purchase a residence within the year.

The survey was of 1,043 folks between the ages of 50 and 65who plan to buy a home in the next decade.

Retirement marks a new phase in a baby boomer’s life, and it only seems natural to relocate or move to a new home when transitioning away from their primary career, or from the day-to-day rearing of school-aged children,Jay Mason, vice president of market intelligence for PulteGroup, said in a statement. It’s not surprising that the 55+ buyer wants a variety of options and choices in their homes.

According to the survey, 39% of respondents said the main reason they’re moving is because they want to retire, 33% want to downsize, and 30% want to move to a more desirable location.

One thing we know about boomers is they are not done yet, saysAmy Lynch, president of Generational Edge, a Nashville, TNbased companythat consults with companieson generational differences in employees. As a group, theyare starting encore careers and also going back to school. And they often move to be near their millennial kids, who are having kids. They also start new families of their own, through divorce or remarriage.

All of these situations may require a move. About 26% of boomersplan to stay in their current cities, but just move to a different home, while 34% want to remain in the state,but in a different city or town.Also, 38% hope to cross state lines.

Their top retirement destination? You guessed it: Florida. It seems you just can’t beat all of that year-round sunshine. The state was followed by fellow warm-weather states Arizona, North Carolina, and South Carolina. The cost of living is lower in these states than on the pricier West Coast or in the Northeast.

About 82% of boomers wanted to be someplace affordable, and 74% want to be close to their preferred health care programs.

But boomers don’t want to just pack up and leave their grandchildren. Being close to kids was their top consideration when choosing a new community. They also want to be near the water and park or other green space.

We are in a period in this country where family life and family connections are very strong, says Lynch. There’s a lot of regret among boomers because they worked so many long hours when their kids were young. With grandkids there’s a chance to make up for that.

Utah Ghost Town Is ‘Wonderfully Peaceful’ Opportunity for Buyer Who’s Unafraid

Utah ghost town for sale

realtor.com

There is something to be said for having your own space to get away from it all. After all, who hasn’t thought aboutheading for the hillsto escape the rat race?

If you’re looking for just the right patch of land to make this dream a reality, consider purchasing the former Maple Creek Mine property, which is currently a ghost town. A very reasonable $225,000 gets you 154 acres of forested land and former mining town in Helper, UT.

It’s quite affordable, says listing agent Mike Metzger. Some people are paying that for a little city loft.

Maple Creek Coal Co. opened the mine in 1927. Itwas in operationuntil a fire in 1931,but two different companies later operated the mine.

The foundations of approximately 30 old buildings are still in place, as are remnants of a tramway that once ran through the mining town. The coal vein has long been tapped out, but old roads and trails still wind through the trees amid wildflowers, crumbling stone walls, and rusting pieces of metal.

A country road provides year-round access to the property, which is covered with maple trees. Thetrees are rare for this part of Utah.

The opening to the abandoned coal mine is also on the property,but it’s been boarded up for safety. Roughly four or five spotson the large spread are perfect for building cabins. The area is also home todeer, elk, moose,and possibly bears.

Potential treasure?
Relics are scattered throughout the property.

Treasure hunters will enjoy finding relics scattered throughout the property.

Their trash is our treasure nowadays, says Metzger, who has found old tricycle parts, a fireplace, mining generator hood, and tram cables amongother items on the property.

The Western Mining and Railroad Museum is also located in Helper,andSalt Lake City is two hours away by car.

It’s got some amazing history, and I have no cellphone service when I’m showing it so it’s wonderfully peaceful, says Metzger. It’s just cool.

One potential buyer is considering rebuilding the old mining town and turning it into a ghost town attraction. Those who are easily spooked need not fret, though: A buyercan also usethe propertyas a private recreation area. Ghosts, begone!
