Developer Bruce Levinsky has sold the Batcheller Mansion. Citing his age (74) Levinsky says he sold it because he is retiring. This seems a bit odd since he told the Albany Business Review he is working on building a hotel behind the Rip Van Dam.
The new owners of the Batcheller Mansion are Vincent and Karen Abate. They purchased the property for $1.8 million.
Mr. Abate is chief technology officer and a senior vice president at GE Global Research in Niskayuna.
They plan to maintain the mansion as an inn.
