Millerton Village Four-Bedroom Fixer-Upper, $54,900

Make no mistake: This house is a project. And, it’s a big project, too, given that the c.1910 home is nearly 3000 square feet in size, contains four bedrooms, and probably could stand an additional bath or two. However, the potential is evident in both some of its details (woodwork, doors/door frames, windows, hardwood floors, etc.) and its location in Millerton village in eastern Dutchess County.

Since the photos tell at least a partial story of the level of work involved with renovating this house, let’s turn our focus to its location. Situated a couple of blocks from the center of the village (pop. 948), the house is walking distance to Millerton amenities. And what does Millerton have? For starters, they have an independent movie house in a beautifully-converted turn-of-the-century Grange hall. Harney & Sons tea purveyors also set up shop in Millerton, as did Irving Farm Coffee House and Oblong Books. Millerton is convenient to Connecticut and the Wassaic Metro-North train station 10 minutes away. Property includes a half-acre of land.
