Storybook Cottage Potential in Northern Greene County, $99K

With a little money and effort, this Coxsackie cottage could be a dreamy Hudson Valley hideaway. 

Those in the market for a first home or low-stress fixer-upper might want to pause and have a look at this two-bedroom house, originally built in 1875, attractively-priced under $100K. The listing specifies that it’s in “fair” condition, but with a mere 764 square feet plus two bedrooms and a single bath to renovate, it won’t overwhelm you like a rambling old farmhouse might.

In addition to electric heat, the house comes with a living room wood stove. The kitchen offers a sunny spot with sliding glass doors for a breakfast nook, and an unfinished room off the kitchen could be turned into a family room or study.

This rural property is a half-acre in size, with a detached garage/carriage house and a handful of outbuildings. Enveloped by trees on a back country road, the cottage is just ten minutes from Exit 21B on the I-87 Thruway, and it’s close to the Catskills, the mid-Hudson Valley, and the Capital District.

Here’s a picture of the cottage during autumn, just in case you weren’t tempted enough…
