Car-Free Upstate: Washingtonville Fixer-Upper, $89,850

43 east main street washingtonville ny

The village of Washingtonville is in Orange County, situated alongside the Moodna Creek. This 4 bedroom house also overlooks the creek, but with that perk comes the risk of flooding, which is high with this property. However, we love the look of it: Those bright blue shutters, spacious backyard, exposed brick fireplace in the living room, and plank floors. Listings says it needs work, and the price is so low, we’re wondering if the work that needs to be done has to do with flood damage. The house is about a five minute walk to the Shortline bus, which stops there every weekday morning and will get you to the city in about 2 hours, as well as other stuff around the village.

Five-Figure Fridays: Saugerties Colonial, $99,900

82 main street saugerties ny

Quite selfishly, we’ve been eyeballing this Colonial on Main Street in Saugerties for a while, waiting for the price to drop and drop and drop some more. And here it is, finally under $100,000. It needs work, and it’s a cash only situation, but it’s in a great location, particularly if you’ve got school-age kids (Cahill Elementary is practically next door and the Jr./Sr. high school is less than a mile away). Also across the street from the farmers market when that’s up and running. Lot size is small and typical for this part of town. It’s a beauty already, but we would love to see a spruced-up interior. While a fixer-upper certainly doesn’t scare us away, the taxes made us cringe. You’d think we would be desensitized to such things by now.

Victorian in Kenoza Lake, $70,000

2 stone arch road kenoza lake ny

Today, we went to Sullivan County in search of a pretty old fixer-upper in a nice location, and boy did we hit the jackpot with this Victorian in Kenoza Lake near Jeffersonville. The interior is attractive, but the interior needs a lot more love an attention. What it does have it a large attic, chestnut staircase, and some lovely stained glass. What needs work? Aside from what you can see in the photos, the roof, walls, floors, and ceilings. Located on a full acre just a half-mile from the Stone Arch Bridge Historical Park and steps from the Callicoon Creek. But don’t worry: It’s at moderate to low risk for flooding. Please someone buy this house, do something amazing with it, and then send us the “After” pictures.
