Despite its potential, this Bethel Colonial home is no weekend-warrior project. Serious rehabbers only need apply. 

Structurally-speaking, things don’t look half bad with this 1,740-square-foot, four-bedroom home. However, if the $49,900 listing price is any indication, it’s going to take more than slapping on a coat of paint or tearing up some carpeting to make it livable again.

The Colonial Craftsman was built in 1935 and has had clearly had some rough years along the way. But, in addition to hardwood floors and original exposed beams, it comes with Shaker-style window and door trim, as well as a wood stove hook-up on the first floor. Water damage along the ceilings and floors seems to indicate burst pipes.

The kitchen is huge and ripe for a serious upgrade, and it offers access to the large back porch.

Part of what makes this property a bargain – fixer-upper house notwithstanding – is that it comes with 8.25 acres of land with old stone walls and garden beds in need of clearing.
