It’s being sold as-is to a cash buyer only, but we couldn’t resist that brick facade when it popped up in the listings. Originally built in the 1880s, the house comes with wood floors and period doors/windows, not to mention a bunch of interior space. That’s right, 2700 square feet and four bedrooms, plus an acre of land to go with it, located in the village of Highland Falls.

Highland Falls is a spunky little town with tightly-packed residences situated along hilly, narrow side streets. The village definitely capitalizes on its proximity to West Point, and it’s also about as close you can get to living in the northern part Bear Mountain State Park. Its real estate market has some promising listings, like the farmhouse mentioned here, but be warned: Orange County property taxes…well, do we really need to say more? Our mentioning it is warning enough, but just in case you’re curious, the taxes for this property were over $17,000 in 2014.
