A Little Bit of Work for a Big Pay-Off in Catskill, NY, $239K

  |  April 24, 2020

Don’t have a big budget to buy your new home? Take a look at this Catskill village Victorian that comes with a backyard pool and a tidy interior. 

Not all of us have the skills or funds to turn around a high-maintenance fixer-upper. But, a lot of us do know how to use a paint brush, wallpaper scraper, and sandpaper. Here’s a three-bedroom, 2,014-square-foot Queen Anne Victorian from the 1890s that needs little more than a touch of TLC and style to make it shine.

Inside, you’ll find plenty of antique (and mostly well-maintained) wood details, like hardwood flooring, trim, pocket doors, and staircase. High ceilings come included, too, along with a formal dining room, large kitchen with tile floors, utility room, and bath…and that’s just the first floor.

Recent upgrades like central air-conditioning and stainless steel appliances make it an even better value. In fact, the listing classifies the home as being in “excellent” condition.

Need a whole bunch of bedrooms? There are four here, as well as an attic space on the third floor.

We’re all about pools this week, and this property has got one in the backyard. Speaking of which, feel free to flex your gardening/landscaping muscles by adding blooms and greenery to the quarter-acre parcel. As for the solar panels on the roof, the listing is silent on whether they are functional, but the potential for big-time utility savings seems apparent.

Situated just a mile or two from Catskill village in Greene County, on the western shores of the Hudson River.
