If you’re not afraid to apply some elbow grease in order to make your upstate NY home a reality, this affordable property in Rensselaer County, east-of-Hudson, might be right for you.
It’s not like the place is falling apart or anything. Overall, it appears turn-key, and the listing refers to it as “well-maintained.” So, really, all we’re looking at is updating the stylistic aspects of the 1600 square foot house. Originally built in the late 1930s, the home has some Craftsman-like details like wood floors, wood trim, and window frames. Also includes a living room wood stove and two full baths. There’s a screened-in porch for an entrance that makes a good mud room, and the layout is essentially a hallway that leads from the living room to the dining room to the kitchen. Speaking of which, the kitchen, although functional, could use an update.
The house sits on 1.5 acres of land set back from the road, just north of the hamlet of Castleton-on-Hudson on the Hudson River. Located about 20 minutes from Albany, 40 minutes from Hudson, and 2.5 hours from NYC.
