Catskills Bungalow Craftsman in Need of a Fresh Look, $95K

Peek inside this 1940s Craftsman bungalow at an array of Arts-and-Crafts built-ins and wood details.

We love the idea of built-in architecture, which you’ll find here in this house. Built-in storage is practical, for starters, saving you a trip to IKEA, but built-ins are also a throw-back to a time (1890s-1940s) when mills could mass-produce components for homes that builders could mix-and-match with other slightly different houses. Home owners didn’t have to buy as much furniture, and mills got to keep producing. Win-win!

Additionally, Craftsman bungalows will often possess wood trim, wood paneling, a main wood staircase, and leaded glass. All of these are on display within the 2,496-square-foot interior, as well as a living room brick fireplace with wood stove insert.

Also throughout the house, cast-iron radiators and original brass fixtures…

Includes three bedrooms, complete with built-in drawers and armoires. Built-ins are inherently practical, but there’s a certain amount of whimsy to them, too, with double doors that tease the existence of Narnia…or, at the very least, a secret room.

All in all, this is a solid house that deserves some TLC, particularly vis-a-vis the shag carpeting situation. What’s under those floors? We can’t tell you, but for a listing price of around $38-per-square foot, it would be worth it to find out.

Located on a half-acre lot, perched on a hill with a view of surrounding Hancock village in Delaware County, NY. The shoreline of the East Branch Delaware River is situated a stone’s throw to the north of this property.
