Have You Heard? Elliman sponsors art program, historic upstate estate listed for $1.7M

The Sickles-Tallman House in upstate Orangeburg, which dates back to the late 1700s, has been listed for $1,688,000 following a $600,000 renovation.

The restored red stone Dutch colonial sits on 2.2 acres of private gardens and fruit trees.

Johann ran acting classes for neighborhood children from the house. After she died in 1993, the home was saved from demolition and lovingly restored by subsequent owners.

It has five bedrooms, 3.5-baths, a family room, library, cathedral ceilings and four fireplaces. Outside, there’s a patio, outdoor kitchen, gunite salt water pool and a master Savant system controls all lighting, television, sound and security systems by phone app.
