Ready to Buy Your First Home? This Wallkill NY Craftsman Bungalow is $189K

Beautifully maintained, this Wallkill NY Craftsman Bungalow is a dream-come-true for first-time homebuyers…

As we bid a fond adieu to the town of Gardiner this week, we’re making a stop on the way out of town in nearby Wallkill. There, this sweet Arts and Crafts home is just waiting to be scooped up by a bargain-seeker.

The listing states that it could be a Sears Roebuck kit home, but a search of the Sears kit house archive didn’t reveal a house design exactly like this one. The closest it comes in the 1933-1940 category are the Dayton and the Crafton. We wondered if it perhaps might be a Warway home, Montgomery Ward’s version of the mail-order kit house. But, Wardway stopped producing kit homes by 1931. This one was built in 1940. Still, it could be Sears kit. Regardless of where the parts came from, this is one well-put-together little abode.

Includes three bedrooms, two on the main floor and one upstairs. Enter through the stained-glass front door into the tidy screened-in porch…

…and continue through the large kitchen, formal dining room, and living room, all with hardwood floors.

The exterior of a bungalow also makes us think the interior will be small, but we’re not feeling that here. Bedrooms look to be a decent size, particularly the upstairs bedroom.

Outside features include wainscoted front porch, fenced-in yard, and detached garage/workshop. Wallkill hamlet is a charming little town on the eastern side of the Wallkill River, southern Ulster County. This house is within walking distance of the hamlet’s center, as is the Wallkill Valley Rail Trail.
