Happy Five-Figure Friday! This week’s edition takes us to Columbia County and this renovation-ready antique country cottage.

If you’ve been hankering for a country house but don’t have a fancy country-house budget, perhaps this 1,224-square-foot cottage might interest you. It’s essentially a blank canvas, originally built in the early 1900s, and has all the makings of a cute abode, situated on a sunny half-acre.

The interior needs a little bit of everything, starting in the kitchen. However, the appliances do work…

…and the listing states that the house contains “the essentials” in order to make it habitable. Prepare to work on it from the ceilings to the floors (which are wood, by the way).

Rounding out the first floor is the home’s full bath, with three bedrooms on the second floor.

Given its price and location (east-of-Hudson, just a few miles west of both Massachusetts and Connecticut state lines, less than 2.5 hours north of NYC), this five-figure property probably won’t stay on the market for long, so if you’ve got the cash and the means to fix it up, don’t hesitate on making an offer.
