Bargain Alert! Hudson Jewel Box Victorian, $139,500

We just had to include this little gem of a house on Carroll Street in Hudson. Completely renovated interior, gorgeous bath and a private garden off the living room. It looks like it may need a bit of cosmetic attention in the front near the second floor windows, but it’s quite a charmer all the same.

The detailing is lovely, both inside and out, and it has a living room fire place and exposed brick in the kitchen. There’s even a tiny bit of space in the back yard, albeit not much.

This house is a modest 840 square feet, but it’s close walking distance to all the Hudson city-center goodies. The public library is just a block away, too.

Now, a word on the neighborhood: Carroll Street is not Warren Street. It lies on the outskirts of the fancy part of town, so there’s a mix of beautiful houses (like this one) and some houses that are in various stages of repair and disrepair. You could say that Carroll Street is indicative of what Hudson is like outside of the galleries, expensive antique shops and restaurants. But according to what we’ve read, streets like Carroll in Hudson are seeing a reawakening of sorts, and places like this great little house are getting the attention they deserve.

    Wow, I love this little house! Gorgeous. Although I wish the interior were a little less modern. Great find.

    Recently toured this tiny beauty. Unfortunately has quite a bit of rot along some of the roof edges and many of the corbels and shakes will have to be replaced. Basement/crawl space was a small lake; supposedly sump-pump had not been turned on but I wasn’t wading in to confirm…
    Has central air but the microscopic and irregularly-shaped lot was a deal-killer for us. No closets either. Still, a sweet find for one or 2 handy people with no kid or significant possessions to consider… when you consider the price.

    I spend a lot of time in Hudson, areas of which have drainage problems. The houses on this street are afflicted with a lot of flooding, hence the rot.
