Make some interior tweaks to this Catskill Victorian home to make it shine, and spend the spring sprucing up the garden. 

If you’re not a bazillionaire, you might find yourself struggling to find your first home in the Hudson Valley. Real estate prices are going berserk around here, making it difficult for anyone without tons of cash to outbid those who do. That makes this property in the village of Catskill, NY a real rarity…

…and we can’t help but hope someone local snatches up this little cutie and turns it into their family home with the intention of sticking around for a while. The 1,222-square-foot interior is in need of some cosmetic updates, including repainting and refinishing the hardwood floors…

…but its need for improvement doesn’t detract from its old-fashioned charms.

The kitchen is big and ready for transformation…

…and there are three bedrooms, plus two full baths.

Outside, the quarter-acre property is absolutely part of this home’s allure. The fenced-in yard features a two-story barn with its own electricity. Need a studio, home work space, or guest cottage? With some improvement, this barn could fit the bill. Gardeners are going to love this sunny plot of land, large enough to accommodate some flower and vegetable gardens.

This property is located just north of Catskill village in Greene County, close to both the Catskill Creek and the Hudson River.
