There are three bedrooms on the second floor, plus a full bath and a sitting room, all of which need repainting, refinishing on the floors, and various other repairs that can’t be seen by quickly glancing at the listing pictures. For the price, however, you could make your dream home out of it.

According to the listing, the property might be eligible for state and federal tax credits due to its historic designation. The house and accompanying quarter-acre lot is in the Otsego County village of Gilbertsville, located on the Dunderberg Creek about 20 miles west of Onteora city.
