Get the Cottage and the Land, Too, for $174,500 in Rensselaer County

This three-bedroom cottage in southern Rensselaer County is giving us a second home vibe due in part to its northernly location on the east side of the Hudson River. The property includes plenty of land, over 2.5 acres’ worth shielded from the road by a treeline, just in case you’re also in the market for some elbow room around you.

First homebuyers might find an interest here, too. The 1172 square foot home is turn-key with polished hardwood floors throughout, granite countertops in the kitchen, renovated/retiled bath, laundry room, and mud room. While it’s not a super-fancy house, there’s not a stitch is out of place here, and the property taxes in Rensselaer County are low. This property is $3600/year, which is quite a bit lower compared to locations more south.

Property includes an above-ground pool, which may or may not be your cup of tea, but there’s also a screened-in shack on the property that looks like the perfect place to watch the fireflies on a summer’s night or enjoy dinner with friends. Situated approximately 25 minutes from Albany, 40 minutes from Hudson, and 2.5 hours from NYC.
