Camp Uncas and J.P. Morgan

If you love heading upstate, then we have the listing for you. A grand home in the Adirondacks that once belonged to J.P. Morgan has hit the market.

Built by Brooklynite William West Durant in 1895, Camp Uncas is on the market for $2.7 million, reduced from its original 2015 ask of $3.25 million, according to 6sqft.

Durant sold the 1,500-acre property to Morgan in 1897, and Morgan kept the home for the next 50 years. It was designated as a national landmark by the U.S. Department of the Interior in 2010 and it has been carefully maintained and restored over the years.

Besides the spacious main house, the property includes two cabins called the Hawkeye and the Chingachgook and a boathouse. [6sqft]Christopher Cameron
