Got some cash saved up and looking for a project? Take on this potential-packed Albany fixer-upper…

Preston Hollow, NY is in Albany County, just north of Catskills attractions like Windham Mountain and Zoom Flume Water Park, right on the Catskill Creek. That’s about three hours from NYC, for those playing at home, and just under an hour from Albany. And, it’s also where we found this c.1850s Victorian still possessing of its original details, like gingerbread scroll work, roof brackets, and window cornices on the facade.

There’s no denying this house needs a full rehab. What did you expect for its $40K listing price? However, the wood floors are still here, as well as bay windows, fireplaces (all covered), arched entryways, and tin ceilings. Includes three bedrooms, 1.5 baths, and 2,192 square feet, plus a summer kitchen off the rear of the house with high ceilings. It could make a studio, guest room, or office.

Located in the center of Preston Hollow hamlet. Once upon a time, this house was the parsonage for the Preston Hollow Baptist Church, and the lot is just under a half-acre in size.
