Expensive house blues got you down? Well, perk up, because this five figure Sullivan County NY house may not last long on the market…
For $55 per square foot, you could own this three-bedroom, 1700+ square foot home. “Surely, it’s a fixer-upper for that price,” you ask. It’s not, and don’t call me Shirley.
In fact, the house – situated just outside of Monticello – is in very good condition, according to the listing, which means you can right move in. Could it use a few tweaks here and there? Indeed, some of the carpeting looks drab, and we would update the kitchen to something a little less “my mom’s cabinetry from 1989,” but things look good, overall.
Most of the floors are refinished hardwood, and the interior also includes high ceilings, double French doors, new windows, and an attic in which you can stand up. That makes it perfect for a studio/office/guest room fix-up, or just a place for storage where you don’t have to worry about nailing your head on the ceiling.
While this .4 acres property is right off of busy Route 17, the front of the house does not face the road. Monticello can be tricky in terms of finding a location that’s not right next door to, say, an ugly strip mall, or a bunch of billboards. However, 20 Downs Road seems fine. Nearby attractions include the Monticello Raceway, Holiday Mountain, and all the outdoorsy-ness the Catskill Mountains have to offer.
Property taxes for 2017 were around $2800.
