Affordable Lakeside Cottage in Sparrowbush, $52,000

  |  January 16, 2015

It’s houses like this that have us looking forward to Five-Figure Fridays. We spend the week getting familiar with the polished, renovated properties gilding the Hudson Valley, and then Friday arrives and we can let our imaginations run wild with design ideas for the more affordable, unpolished gems south of Albany. As for this petite Cape Cod-style cottage, we can breathe a sigh of relief that there are no renovations required for the polished hardwood floors, and then move right along to the minor touch-ups needed for the railings and doors. After that, who knows? The enclosed porch and wraparound deck make for an inspiring threshold to the surrounding forest, and there are a million directions that we could take the kitchen space…but that’s enough from us – this is your blank canvas! Go crazy! What else is Friday good for?
