Break it down, and this Victorian is listed for about $17/square foot (3102 square foot interior). That’s a bargain as far we’re concerned, even for the amount of work you may need to put in to make this house a true stunner again. The wood floors need sanding and finishing, the kitchen needs updating, the wallpaper is peeling, and moldings are missing…and that’s just what we can see on the surface. And yet, we can’t look away. It’s just too pretty.

Includes 4 beds/2 baths and a postage stamp yard, located a quick five minutes from the Poughkeepsie train station, the waterfront, and the Walkway-Over-the-Hudson. Poughkeepsie gets a pretty bum rap, but there’s no denying the gorgeous architecture that abounds in the Dutchess County city. We’ve waxed poetic about it before, and we probably will again.

FYI: This is a cash-only transaction with proof of funds needed.
