Kerhonkson Contemporary, $129,000

A bounty of affordable country houses in these parts! I happen to like the look a little more on the outside than on the inside, but ripping out that blue carpet in the TV room will go a long way. 46 Dymond Road in Kerhonkson was built in 1960, but you can see some upgrades since then, particularly the subway tile in the bathroom. Looks like it could use a bit of modernizing (change the cabinets in the bathroom, perhaps the kitchen, too), but with a price like that, you could probably afford to upgrade.

Here’s a bit of additional info from the broker: “Some other areas of the house could use fresh paint and trim in some of the rooms. The condition of the house is solid, but it could benefit from cosmetics like carpet on the stairs. It is a lot of house for the money. Much of the land sits on a ridge above the house and could actually accomodate another structure. It is a terrific spot for sports like 4 wheeling and cross country skiing. It’s a GREAT getaway or full time home on a private road.”

This one, too, has a condition of “good,” so if you go see it, bring a skeptical eye and a really good engineer.
