City/Country: Philmont Cabin, $159,000

This little cabin caught our eye. It’s in “downtown” Philmont, a hamlet just outside of Hudson, which has a bookstore and a couple of great restaurants, among other attributes.

The listing calls it a starter pied-a-terre, and yes, it’s a cottage, folks: the square footage is not revealed, but you can fit two bedrooms in it, and sit on the deck, listening to the creek if it’s too cozy inside. We’re partial to the 1950s green paint, the beamed ceilings, the landscaping. Taxes are in the $2,500 range. It abuts the High Falls Conservation Area.

Fixer-Upper of the Week: Philmont Arts+Crafts, $110,000

Someone started to lovingly restore this sweet three-bed, two-bath built in 1880, and then gave up. (We assume the reason is financial, but we don’t know). If you buy it, for just over a hundred grand, they’ll throw in the materials. It’s on a half-acre lot, lined with stone walls, in the sweet little Columbia County hamlet of Philmont.

Here’s what they’ve done to it so far:

- New cedar shake siding

- New windows

- All new electrical box and wiring

- Wood floors

- Sheetrocked upstairs

No kitchen photos, so that’ll need reinventing, too.

Philmont is about a two-hour and forty-five minute drive away from Brooklyn, a short skip from the Hudson Amtrak station.
