Get the most out of your money by snatching up this big farmhouse on 1.5 acres of land, situated eight miles west of Oneonta, NY. 

Most of us our trying to live that affordable life right now, but that shouldn’t stop you from getting your hands on a sprawling, 3,177-square-foot house, sitting on enough land to start yourself a sustainable little homestead. So what if it’s more than three hours from NYC? Like so many of those moving north to the ‘burbs, maybe sticking close to NYC isn’t exactly your M.O. right now.

For $47-per-square-foot, the c.1880s Victorian comes with hardwood floors, high ceilings, French doors, and a kitchen large enough to keep an entire army fed. New storm windows will keep in the heat during the winter…heat which can be generated via a coal stove (yes, the kind where you actually shovel coal into a fire) in the basement. According to the listing, you can heat the whole house this way for less than $2,000 a year.
