Imagine this Catskills Craftsman with a Full Renovation…

This Catskills Craftsman house in Sullivan County is a bargain at $70K, but it needs a lot of love…

Happy Five-Figure Friday, Upstaters! If you’ve got renovating on your mind for 2019, take a look at this 1920s stone house in Livingston Manor, NY. In spite of its state, it’s got solid bones. After all, it is a Craftsman built to last for generations.

Starting with the three (!) glass-enclosed porches, the six-bedroom, 4,390-square-foot residence has got some curb appeal, alright. Who doesn’t love a transom front door with field stone supports?

Prepare to roll up your sleeves (or hire someone to roll up their sleeves) and dig in, because it looks like there’s some damage here. But, is it flood damage? While the Little Beaver Kill flows right through the center of Livingston Manor village making it susceptible to flooding, this property appears to be in the safe zone, according to the FEMA flood map.

Some nice original details here, like the living room brick fireplace, dining room stone fireplace, additional fireplace on the second floor, exposed beams, built-ins, tile and wood flooring, cast-iron radiators, French doors with beveled glass, and a 6-foot vintage farm sink in good condition.

This property includes a lot just under a quarter-acre in size. A note on its location: The listing address is “4 Dubois Street.” However, if you Google Map that, it takes you to the wrong location. Try “94 Dubois Street, Livingston Manor,” instead.

Naturally, this house is being sold as-is, so gird your loins for whatever this potential-packed property has in store. Located in Livingston Manor village, a cute Catskills town bordering the Willowemoc , Delaware, and Cherry Ridge Wild Forests. Also convenient to Roscoe (the place to trout fish in the state), Liberty, Bethel (where the original 1969 Woodstock festival took place), and Monticello.
