Intriguing c.1828 Brick Saltbox in the Catskills Countryside, $97,000

  |  October 19, 2016

Color us curious, but we are dying to poke around the inside of this Greene County home in the Catskills, uncover some treasures, and maybe plunk out a song (albeit an out-of-tune one, almost certainly) on that old upright piano.


Treasure-hunting tendencies aside, this fixer-upper is listed for a hair under $100,000, and while it needs a lot of work, we love its historic character (and the “1828” emblazoned on the front facade), stone chimney, exposed brick, and the fact that it comes with two additional buildings on the 5.8-acre property, one of which is set up as an art studio/gallery. And yes, you read that right: It comes with nearly 6 acres of land with that low, low listing price.

Includes 1442 square feet and 3 beds/1 bath. The house is also as “as-is” as it gets, so expect to spend time and money on renovating this old potential beauty.
