Johannes Teller House
Marilyn Sassi calls herself “an incurable collector,” and whether the piece is an original heirloom or a remarkable reproduction, it’s something lovers of antiquity will find fascinating. Her most prized and equally fascinating “collectable” however, is her house at 121 Front St. in the Stockade section of Schenectady. “What’s important about this house is that it’s a hybrid of English Georgian design from the 18th century along with several Dutch elements,” said Sassi, whose home will be part of the 50th Stockade Walkabout on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. “What’s unusual is that it’s not like the other houses in the Stockade. It was built for the country, as if it was a little manor house.” Posted on September 22, 2009.
