Saugerties, NY is scorching hot right now, so if you want a home there, best roll up your sleeves and get to work on this fixer upper cottage.
Good luck buying a home in the Ulster County, NY town of Saugerties. Residences listed on the market are getting scooped up within days of listing, with cash offers and over-asking-price bids getting tossed around like crazy. If you’ve got the means to fix up an as-is property, it might pay off in the long run with a place you designed to your own specific needs, or a flipper that will bring you some cash. Just be prepared to make an offer that can’t be refused, even for an as-is fixer-upper.
We see great weekend-cottage potential in this spry shanty situated in west Saugerties. The 875-square-foot interior is stripped down and set up for a complete renovation, as you can see from the photos…
…with new spray foam insulation already blown in, new 200-amp electric installed, plus a metal roof, and new windows. The home’s single bedroom and loft space have been framed out…
…and the bathroom is big enough to accommodate a washer and dryer , hook-ups already installed.
Our favorite feature of this property is its location. From here, Saugerties village and its various restaurants, boutiques, and equestrian events is just a short drive away. But, more importantly, Platte Clove Preserve is a short distance away, and it’s the perfect place to wile away a hot summer’s day in the shade of old-growth trees, hiking the trails.
The property itself takes up about 1/16th of an acre, and it sits close to some neighboring houses. Then again, Platte Clove is practically in your backyard, so that might ease the lack-of-privacy pains a bit. This is the Catskills, after all. If you want privacy, just head for the trees.
