Come Rescue this Cottage in Cornwall-on-Hudson, NY for $95K

Happy Five-Figure Friday, Upstaters! This week, we’re looking at a Cornwall-on-Hudson cottage that needs some love….

We are not lovers of real estate cliches, but if there was ever a time to use the term “a diamond in the rough,” this is just such a circumstance. Situated on a third-of-an-acre in a bucolic Hudson River hamlet, this 1930s cottage sports hardwood floors and paned, double-hung windows to allow for maximum natural light exposure.

It’s being sold as-is, but it doesn’t look half bad, cosmetically-speaking, although the kitchen clearly needs The Works. The rest isn’t outlined in the listing, so prepare to do your homework before buying.

What we do know is that the interior is 1,117 square feet with a single bed and bath. Furthermore, it sits at the end of a quiet, dead-end lane with few neighbors, walking distance to Cornwall-on-Hudson restaurants, shops, cafes, library, and post office. A five-minute drive will place you right on the shores of the Hudson River in Donahue Memorial Park. Storm King Art Center is less than 10 minutes away, and the Beacon Metro-North station is a half-hour from this cottage’s front door.

In case you haven’t picked up on it, we’re suggesting that this is a great location. Cornwall-on-Hudson is a sweet town with sweet people, situated in southeastern Orange County, on the shores of the Hudson River. Five-figure properties are a rarity in these parts, even fixer-uppers, so if you’ve got the skills (or the dough) to renovate this cottage, do it!
