Five-Figure Friday Fixer-Upper House in Monticello, NY, $89,900

Happy Five-Figure Friday, Upstaters! This week, we’re back in Sullivan County for this Monticello antique house that needs all kinds of love…

And, since we’re in Sullivan County, it would be tempting for us to show you one of the dozens of seasonal cottages for sale in the under $100K category. After all, the area is known for its lake communities and bungalow colonies, many of them only suitable for use during two seasons, maybe three if there’s a wood stove involved.

What about those who want to live in Sullivan County full-time? What about those willing to put in the effort it takes to transform a beautiful vintage home back to its former glory? What about those who aren’t just looking to invest in a home, but in a community? Let’s not leave you out. Take a look at this turn-of-the-century three-bedroom in one of the largest villages in Sullivan County…

See how spacious? But it needs quite a bit of renovation as evidenced from the photos. Includes 1,437 square feet, three stories, three bedrooms, and two baths. The original moldings are still in tact, as are the hardwood floors. According to the listing, there’s potential here for commercial offices instead of a private residence, if that’s the kind of thing you’re looking for. It’s right in the middle of Monticello village, pop. 6,700+, near Broadway, Monticello’s main drag.

Should you choose to go the large single-family home direction, instead, there’s lots of room to spread out, and a glass-enclosed front porch that would make a nice place to congregate, or a mud room upon entry.
