Car-Free Country House: Craftsman in Cairo, $199,900

  |  May 16, 2012

We’ve been flirting with Cairo (Greene County) since we took a drive through there last fall, when the trees were bursting with color and the sky was deep blue and perfectly clear. We liked the quiet little town immediately, even though there’s really not much there, and we’ve been keeping our eyes on the real estate market ever since, hoping for some cool stuff to crop up. Not much luck. But we did find this adorable 1920s Craftsman located on Main Street, less than a mile from the Trailways bus station in town and walking distance to both schools and a few businesses.

Nice details inside, like leaded stained glass and an adorable retro kitchen with a checkerboard floor. The price is right at less than $100/square foot, and the taxes are under $3,000. Lot size is pretty small but looks woodsy.
