Charming and Affordable Brick Row House, $159K

brick row

Investigate Athens, NY’s north side and you just might find your first home among a bevy of brick row houses.

The Brick Row Historic District, situated 1.5 miles north of Athens village on the Hudson River, was built in the 1860s for the workers on the Saratoga and Hudson River Railroad line. While the line is long gone, the brick row houses remain and turned into charming and inexpensive abodes just a short walk from the Hudson River.

This two-bedroom home is just about dead-center in the row and features a recent renovation.

Up on the second floor is a full bathroom and two bedrooms, one of which is a massive master bedroom with oodles of closet space. The second bedroom could be a home office, guest room, or studio if you don’t need an additional bedroom…

…and, the fenced back yard is big enough for some plantings and a grill. Just beyond the backyard are the shores of the Hudson.
