The Cutest Little Fixer-Upper Victorian in Columbia County, NY, $75K

  |  July 20, 2018

You know, there are alternatives to dropping half-a-mil on a house in pricey Hudson, NY. Take a gander at this affordable Victorian, instead…

Located less than five miles north of Hudson’s bustling Warren Street, this three-bedroom Victorian exudes potential. This is not a huge and rambling old farmhouse, by the way. With only 1,200 square feet to deal with, giving the late-1800s home a make-over isn’t an overwhelming prospect. Furthermore, you know what they say about these old houses: They have good bones.

The interior itself is a bit of a mystery, as the listing only includes two photos:

…but we do know that it’s got three bedrooms, a single bath, and a kitchen with sliders that open onto the back deck and .66-acre yard. It’s actually a nice, level lot, shaded with trees, with a little open field behind the house. We picture a fire pit with some chairs…are you picturing it, too?

The hamlet of Stottville is a straight shot on Route 20 or Route 9 down to Hudson city, which is Columbia County’s main cultural/arts/center of commerce. Situated on the eastern shores of the Hudson River, Hudson offers much in the way of good food, live music, art galleries, shops, and other retail. All of the county government buildings are in Hudson, as well, so good news if you need to pay a parking ticket!

Stottville is also on the Claverack Creek, which is just about where Columbia County gets rural. Head north for Art Omi, and head east for Massachusetts.
