Five-Figure Friday: A Two-Bed Wurtsboro Bungalow Close to the Casino for $89KJane Anderson | March 24, 2023
Happy Five-Figure Friday! Today we’re at a bungalow that’s going to need a bones-and-all reno.
It’s in Wurtsboro, only about 15 minutes to Resorts World Catskills and the Kartrite Waterpark. The exterior looks like it’s in okay shape, with an intact roof and white siding that needs a good scrubbing.
The vintage wooden front door opens into this enclosed porch. It’s got a pitched ceiling with rustic rafters; clapboard siding with character; and a floor that’s seen better days.
Inside the house, the condition deteriorates somewhat. The living room has a wood floor and an ancient woodstove.
The light here, though, is Edward Hopper-esque.
The kitchen’s got wood-plank walls that the new owners could definitely repurpose if they didn’t want to keep them up. Other than that, though, the entire kitchen needs a re-do.
This bedroom has moody light but lots of grime, mold, and a ruined ceiling. The 800-square-foot house was built in 1932 and has two bedrooms.
The bathroom looks new-ish but needs help, too.
The house is on a quarter-acre lot in the hills of Wurtsboro, about a half-hour from Bethel Woods Center for the Arts. Locally, it’s a five-minute drive to downtown Wurtsboro for the gifty wonderland that is Canal Towne Emporium, or the best chai and vegetarian eats at Red Dot Kitchen.
If you’re ready for hard work, check out 34 Poplar Trail, Wurtsboro, with Isaiah Lopez of Keller Williams Hudson Valley United.
