Dated though it may be, there’s nothing stopping you from moving into this Hamden farmhouse and fixing it up while you live in it. 

It’s a big one, too, at 2,600 square feet and five bedrooms, so you’ll have a fair amount of cosmetic work ahead of you. But, for $38-per-square-foot, it’s a good trade-off. Start with fixing up and repainting the front porch, and continue into the entryway and living room where you’ll find…

…a lot of green carpeting, floral wallpaper, and vinyl wall siding.

We dig, however, some of the retro details like the built-ins in the closet, as well as the original turn-of-the-century hardwood floors…

…and the kitchen is so big, it’s practically cavernous, if in need of appliances, some new cabinetry, flooring, and counter tops.

Upstairs, there are a mix of small and large bedrooms…

…and when we say large, we mean large. Look at the size of this room! Instead of a bedroom, make it into a studio or office space.

We also love the second-floor balcony, but it needs some serious help to get back to an attractive state…

…as does the old barn that comes included with the quarter-acre property. But, there are so many things you could do with it: Storage, garage, workshop, or guest house spring immediately to mind.

The property is located in the central-Delaware-County town of Hamden, NY, in the center of the hamlet that bares the same name. From here, groceries and take-out are just a short stroll away. Hamden is about a 2.5-hour drive from the George Washington Bridge.
