Five-Figure Friday: $89,900 in Shokan

Admittedly, we can know nothing about this home’s interior. We can know about it’s location — right close to the Ashokan reservoir, but blessedly not on the main thoroughfare of Route 28. And we can know about its exterior cuteness. And its price, the honorable less-than-ninety-thousand bucks.

Three beds, two baths, 1,237 square feet and .84 acres. Being sold in “as is” condition, though it makes mention of wide-plank floors and a level, “play-friendly” yard.

Five-Figure Fridays: Shokan Teardown?

So, Route 28 might not be your idea of a dream address. It’s the main corridor through the Catskills and there’s traffic day and night (not traffic jams, just constant cars). But, here’s a possibility: 4.4 acres in lovely Shokan, with a house that’s been abandoned for a long time and needs major repairs. We’re reading between the lines that there’s not much worth saving. The good part is that it’s set far back from the road, and should you decide to rebuild on the existing foundation (or salvage the house as it is), you might be able to edge out the hum of traffic and the view of tail lights.

The land, they write, is assessed at $165,900, and they’re offering it, with the house, at $74,900. We are big fans of pink tile with black trim, so if it were us we’d be hanging on to that part of the bathroom, at the very least.

Friday Real Estate Porn: Shokan Live/Work, $965,000

We wrote up 2866 State Route 28 in August of 2011, and the price hasn’t dropped a dime since then. But if you’re looking for the upstate New York/country version of a live/work space, and you have some money to spend, this is worth a look. Route 28 is the main drag west of Kingston through the Catskills, so lotsa cars zooming by every day (one estimate is 15,000).

The two buildings include a 1940s former garage, which has been a restaurant and furnishings store in the past, among other incarnations. Then there’s a two-bed, two-bath 1980s contemporary behind it. The garage is 2,500 square feet and the house is 950 — small but pretty.
