Five-Figure Friday: A Coxsackie Two-Bedroom for $99.9K

  |  June 30, 2023

Is it the end of the week already? That means it’s time for Five-Figure Friday, and today we’re at a Coxsackie home that squeaks in at just under $100K.

The home is in remarkably better shape than most of our recent FFF picks. It was built in 1900, and measures 1,072 square feet. The vinyl siding appears to be in okay shape, and it’s got clean lines and interesting touches like those eyebrow windows on the second floor.

Of course, it is a fixer-upper. But the bones are good, like a ceramic-tiled entry and a not-terrible living room floor.

There’s a decorative fireplace in the living room that could be a nice focal point once the room is fixed up. We like the original trim around the windows (we’re not digging that baseboard heat—old-home lovers prefer radiators—but we’re glad it’s there), and it, too, looks like it’s in good condition.

The kitchen is a nice surprise, with a new laminate floor and nice white cabinets topped with black, solid-surface countertops. A new paint job on the walls and some serious decorating—including eliminating that fruity border—and this room could look fabulous.


Across the foyer from the living room is this room. It looks too small to be a bedroom, but it would make a good office or dressing room.

Next to it is a legit bedroom. Both rooms are fully carpeted, but the new owner would most likely want to replace it. The blue walls might need a redo, too. Pretty much every room in the house needs a good scrubbing, as well.

This bathroom appears to be functioning well, with a vinyl-tile floor and a tub, vanity, and toilet that might be new. The walls are a toasty color that coordinate well with the beige fixtures. The ceiling here is peaked.

A nicely floored mudroom/laundry room needs cosmetic work on the walls and ceiling, but it has a washer-dryer connection and a door leading right outside.

If you head up those kinda-steep stairs in the living room, you’ll end up at the spacious second floor.

It’s got a cove ceiling and lots of windows, but it needs a lot of work. With some renovation, though, it could be a great primary suite.

The second bathroom has a pitched ceiling and fixtures that appear to be quite a bit older than those in the first bathroom. If you’re a bathroom-tile fan, you’d want to hang on to the blue half-wall tiling here. And that oversized tub would be a keeper, too.

The partial basement is unfinished, but offers potential for more renovated space.

The detached, two-car garage offers more storage possibilities.

It’s lighted and has a concrete floor.

The house sits on a quarter-acre corner lot that’s walking distance to local schools. It’s just a couple blocks from Mansion Street and less than a 15-minute walk to downtown Coxsackie for provisions at Mansion + Reed General Store or a drink and live music at Patrick Henry’s Waterfront Tavern. The property is being sold as-is, cash only.
