Come to Cobleskill, NY for an Economical Country Cottage, $99K

In the market for an affordable country bungalow? This Cobleskill cottage won’t break the bank.

Searching for a five-figure home in the Hudson Valley and Catskills is like looking for a job on Craigslist in the Hudson Valley and Catskills…or anywhere else, for that matter: You have to look everyday. It won’t do to just check every other week or so. You have to make a routine of it. Set an alarm, pour a cup of coffee, and fire up the Interwebs every morning, or you’ll miss the good stuff.

And, much like looking for jobs in the Hudson Valley and Catskills, you’ll realize that, eventually, you’re going to have to broaden your search really north, or really south. While doing our own diligent search, we found this Cobleskill-based bungalow in solid condition for under $100K.

From the outset, this property looks tidy but modest. However, there’s more here than meets the eye, including a full acre of land. Along with the main, single-bedroom cottage, the lot also comes with a double-car garage plus storage/workshop space, as well as a separate, large shed.

The cottage is 722-square-feet’s-worth of 1930s Craftsman built-ins, wood work, and hardwood floors, all in pristine condition.

All those built-ins aren’t just for show: They help make the small interior as efficient as possible, leaving plenty of room for an updated kitchen with granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances.

There’s even room for a dining nook off the living room.

Storage won’t be a problem in the bedroom…

…or outside in the yard. Don’t need a dedicated storage shed or huge garage? There could be an opportunity to re-purpose these spaces, depending on the local zoning laws.

Cobleskill, NY is located in northern Schoharie County, about 50 miles west of Albany.
