Fix Up and Live in this 1930s Shake-Sided Cottage on 1.7 Acres in Putnam County, $95,000

  |  November 18, 2016

The listing for this fixer-upper in Brewster, Putnam County suggests that a buyer “fix and flip” it. However, we submit that instead of flipping it, you fix it up, and live in it yourself. Why? Well, for starters, the house sits on nearly two acres of just south of Brewster and the nearest Metro North station. Definitely out in the country, but close to civilization and only an hour from NYC on a good day with zero traffic. Secondly, this is not a foreclosure or a short sale, although we’re guessing you’ll need cash. Furthermore, it shines with possibility from its plank flooring to the wood trim…as long as you don’t mind a big renovation project.

Includes three beds, one bath, and a full basement. The taxes seem dirt-cheap for Putnam County at around $5800/year. Have we unearthed a diamond in the rough?
