Car-Free Upstate: Goshen Fixer-Upper, $149,000

14 high street goshen ny

We think this cira-19th century house in the Orange County town of Goshen is unique and cool looking, and while it looks a bit rough around the edges, the potential for a nice renovation seems to be there. Plus, it has an insulated attic, new furnace, and updated electric system already in place (but no pictures of the kitchen or bathrooms. Eek!). High Street seems like an okay residential neighborhood, very close to Main and Church Street, and the Shortline bus stops about a half-mile away at Route 207 and Matthews. Added bonus: Access to the Orange Heritage Trail is nearby, which means walking, running, biking, etc. without worrying about cars.

Car-Free Country House: Goshen Victorian, $435,000

     68 murray avenue

As far as trying to make a go of living part-time upstate without a car, you could do worse than Goshen in Orange County. Shortline bus service stops at the park and ride at the corner of Matthews Street and Route 207, and the rest of town and all of the amenities are pretty close to that. This pretty Victorian is located about a mile from the Shortline bus stop, which might be too far to walk depending on the season. We would mostly likely just call a cab to come pick us up and drop us off on our doorstep. The house is fairly close to lots of other things in town, and it’s nice inside. We love the brick. It’s also got an in-ground pool and a covered patio out back. We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again: Listings need good photos. Some of the photos here are okay, but blurry interior shots of the main common areas of a house don’t do much to sell it. Luckily, this baby has loads of curb appeal. Oh, and did we mention it’s situated on nearly an acre of land?

Rental of the Week: Goshen Cottage, $1500/month

You may recall that a while back, the town of Goshen in Orange County was called one of the top 7 places to live in the Hudson Valley, at least according to Hudson Valley Magazine. We tend to agree, not least because Goshen is an historical walking tour waiting to happen. Some good properties there, too, many quite affordable.

And from the TARDIS files comes this cute cottage that’s bigger on the inside. It’s actually a 3 bed/2 bath and nearly 1,700 square feet. Ah, there’s the rest of it:

It’s located on a small lot in a residential area not far from the town’s historic district, and the listing suggests the attic could become a fourth bedroom.

Beds: 3

Baths: 2

Square Feet: 1,674

Six Months Later: Goshen Colonial Still $750,000

Six months ago we were checking out the village of Goshen in Orange County, which is a picturesque little town with many beautiful 19th century homes. Goshen’s proximity to New York City — 65 miles away — means real estate is on the pricey side, and this Colonial on 20 acres, 2.5 miles out of town, hasn’t seen a price drop since we last looked at it. The asking price is still $750,000.


Taxes are in the $13,000 range, and it has five beds, 2.5 baths and 3,600 square feet.
