On this Five-Figure Friday, we’re visiting this home that needs a lot of fixing but is in a great location in Kerhonkson, not far from awesome hiking and climbing in the ‘Gunks.
The 1,950-square-foot, two-story house is cash-only due to what the listing says are “defects.” We’re guessing the tarp-covered roof is part of those defects. It currently doesn’t have water service, either, but a municipal water line is scheduled to be hooked up in the fall.
The living room is carpeted and looks like it would be roomy with appropriately sized furniture. The wall color needs updating, too. But those windows look sturdy, and there’s interesting paneled trim around the walls.
The kitchen is a retro throwback, with a vinyl-tile floor, dark wood cabinets, and a Formica-look countertop. Those cabinets look hand-crafted; the new owner might consider reusing them with a little refinishing. The black-and-gray-and-white backsplash (with an accent above the range) probably should go, though.
More of that dark wood is echoed in paneling around the kitchen, which is large enough for a full dining set. There are a couple of windows to brighten it up.
Nearly all of the bedrooms have temporary struts holding up the ceiling. This room is big, however, and could serve as the primary bedroom once all repairs are made.
This room has two of those struts—and what looks like a BB gun against the wall. The AC window units are clues that there isn’t central air here, either.
A tropical mural and 80s-esque lacquered furniture are the highlight (?) of this room. The house was loved at one time, and it just needs the right person with vision to bring it back.
This room doesn’t appear to have any temporary structural support, and is a nice size.
There’s a full bath with a glass-slider tub/shower combination and classically 80s decor.
