Five-Figure Friday: A Creekside Home in White Sulphur Springs for $92K

  |  May 26, 2023

This three-bedroom home in Sullivan County fits both this week’s garden theme and Five-Figure Friday.

The c.1850 home measures 1,134 square feet, and is a cheery yellow on the outside, with a matching set of sheds adjoining it.

It’s definitely a fixer-upper. There aren’t a lot of photos included with the listing—and none of the living room. The kitchen has a bank of black cabinetry along an industrial-looking beige brick wall.

Still, it’s a good size.

Here’s the requisite wood-paneled bedroom that seems to be iconic in fixer-uppers throughout the Hudson Valley and Catskills. But although some types of paneling are charming, this type kinda isn’t, so much.

But again, there’s a lot of room for imagination and repairs. Speaking of repairs: The listing says the home has a solid foundation but needs new joists and floors. That’s an expensive undertaking, but it could be the right job for the right person.

The bathroom is small—but if you’re redoing the entire floor, you could reconfigure the rooms (within plumbing limitations, of course) while you’re at it.

There’s a neat side porch, painted Kelly green, and it borders a raised-bed garden…

…make that a bunch of raised-bed gardens, with a watered swale on the other side.

Plus there’s a burbling brook right behind the house. The property totals 0.18 acre.

White Sulphur Springs is a sleepy little place, but groceries and other shopping can be had within a 15-minute drive to Liberty. And Bethel Woods Center for the Arts is under 20 minutes away.
