Can anyone still afford a home east of the Hudson River? This Elizaville farmhouse answers with a resounding “yes!”
In fact, this week on Upstater, we’ll show that you don’t need to head west to find an affordable home in the Hudson Valley. There are plenty of homes for sale that come with manageable monthly mortgages in Columbia County, Dutchess County, and yes, even Putnam County (sorry, Westchester County; you’re still too rich for our blood). Every property we feature this week lists for less than $350K, a number we plucked purely out of the blue…but also because, depending on your down-payment, a $350K home might still be cheaper than shelling out $2K-per-month for a home you do not own. Just watch out for those property taxes!
Even with property taxes just north of $400-per-month, this four-bedroom home offers a pretty, 1,691-square-foot interior that’s been lovingly-maintained since the house was built in the 1790s…
and includes plank and hardwood floors throughout, beadboard ceilings, original hardware, and a stone fireplace in the living room.
The kitchen is usable, but feel free to update it with a new coat of paint, appliances, and cabinetry…
…and, we see a little wear and tear in the home’s bedrooms but, otherwise, they look cute and cozy. There are also two full bathrooms.
Six picturesque acres add to this home’s value, as do three more outbuildings and an open field perfect for gardening. Need more land? Scoop up the other 36 acres, also for sale.
Its location is convenient to the Taconic State Parkway, Lake Taghkanic Beach, Rhinebeck and Red Hook villages, and Hudson, NY. From here, it will take you around two hours (as long as there’s no traffic) to get to midtown Manhattan.
