Turn-Key Brick Federal in Catskill Village, $99,000

There’s no denying this c.1890s Federal house’s exterior charm completely with ornate trim, arched window frames, shutters, and wrap-around porch. Peek around the back of the house, and you’ll find it’s got a hidden basement level, while the back porch offers a bit of a view of the Catskill Creek, which borders the property. Cross the bridge over the creek, and you’re on the Hudson River side of Catskill village. Do we love that there’s a used car lot across the road? Not particularly, but given that this three-bedroom house looks to be in great condition (not to mention the five-figure price), we’ll let it slide for now. Another location note: There’s a freight train trestle that passes over Route 9W close to this house. Will noise be a concern? Consult the listing agent on that one.

Includes over 1500 square feet, three bedrooms, one full + a half bath, wood floors on the first floor, carpeting on the second, and ceramic tile in the kitchen/dining room. Take note that the kitchen contains no appliances. The location gives easy access to Route 9W, which will get you to the I-87 Thruway, as well as the Rip Van Winkle Bridge to Columbia County, east-of-Hudson.

8 Bushnell Avenue, Catskill (Keller Williams)
