1980s Washingtonville Home for $90K

  |  September 16, 2022

Orange County’s Washingtonville has long been a haven for NYC commuters, due to its peace and quiet and its relatively close proximity to the city. And on this Five-Figure Friday, we feature a rarity in the village: A house for $90,000.

Ok, technically it’s a mobile home, which we don’t often include here. But this home in the Washingtonville Manor development looks well-maintained, and it’s got 1,535 square feet of interior space to play with.

The entry bumps out into this mini-room that could fit a desk or dinette. The wood floors and wainscoting’s dark tones are balanced by the white walls.

The new owner would do well to ignore that funky ceiling, refinish the wainscoting, and maybe rip out the carpeting. There’s a stone pad for a wood stove, and big windows (that need new treatments).

A previous owner definitely was handy with a hammer; this corner wall unit offers tons of display space and storage.

The kitchen has more handcrafted table space and shelving. It’s also got a tile floor that climbs the wall as baseboards.

That vintage farmhouse sink is just too cute. Whether the new owner keeps the cabinetry or swaps it out, they’d be insane not to keep that sink.

Oh. This is the other side of what we thought was just a kitchen table. It’s definitely a handcrafted…piece. Is it a desk? Storage unit? The wooden piece is solidly built, but the office-grade table surround needs to go.

The home has a half-bath with a pedestal sink.

It also has four bedrooms, which probably all have that same light-beige carpeting.

Wait, no. These two rooms—separated by a velvet curtain below a row of glass blocks—have laminate floors.

The full bath is small but seems to be in good shape, with a single-sink vanity and a tub/shower.

The listing says the house has a vegetable garden, herb garden, fruit trees, and raspberry bushes. The monthly land lease tops out at $1,075, so the new owner needs to take that into account, too.
