No doubt about it: This is a real fixer-upper. However, if that doesn’t scare you, we suggest you take a closer look at this property’s attributes before you decide if it’s worth the sweat equity.
Firstly, there’s the location. The farmhouse, which was originally built in 1890, is in the town of Germantown, southern Columbia County, on the east side of the Hudson River. The city of Hudson and the Hudson Amtrak station is less than 10 minutes from this property. Other nearby points of interest include Rhinebeck, Tivoli, and the hamlet of Germantown (check out what the NYT had to say about Germantown back in October 2016).
Second, the property includes a full acre of land and comes with “water views,” according to the listing. And, last of all, once the work is complete, you’ll be left with an updated farmhouse on little slice of heaven in the mid-Hudson Valley.
The 1400-square foot home includes three bedrooms and one full bath. What would you do to fix up this antique home?
