Upstater’s Five-Figure Friday visit is in Kingston, at a home that is just west of the Stockade District.
Built in a traditional farmhouse style in 1900, the house has a cozy front porch, in keeping with the past week’s Upstater theme. The exterior is bathed in white paint that could use some cleanup and repair, but for under $100K, it’s in remarkably good shape.
The entry brings you into the living room, which needs a big renovation to the floors (and probably the walls, too, unless you’re keen on knotty pine wainscoting).
The eat-in kitchen is big, with lots of cabinets and a ceramic-tile floor.
There’s a door to the yard from the kitchen, too.
A bonus room on the main level could be an additional bedroom or an office.
The half-bath shares space with a washer and dryer. Ceramic tile flooring in here, too, means easy-to-clean.
Carpeted stairs curve their way up from the living room.
The two bedrooms up here need work, from ripping up the carpeting to repairing and repainting the walls.
The bathroom looks functional, if a little dated.
Some vintage details remain, like the old-fashioned doorknob assembly on the closet in this bedroom. It’s kind of a shame that the wood trim and some of the old hardware have all been painted over.
There’s a covered back porch, and the backyard is enclosed with chain-link fencing. Like most city lots, the property isn’t big: It measures 0.07 of an acre. But it’s not far from great shops and restaurants in Uptown.
