Already paying a grand or more to rent? Why not invest in a home, instead, like this Kingston Tiny House listed for $183,500?
If you’re ready to take the plunge into home ownership, you might want to hang around with us at Upstater this week as we feature our favorite potential first-homes in the Hudson Valley and Catskills. Our completely unscientific list of criteria for which properties make the cut are as follows: 1) Listing price in the neighborhood of $100K-$250K; 2) Property taxes that won’t give you a heart attack; and 3) They look cool.
This 694-square-foot cottage certainly fits all of those criteria, as long as you’re not looking for a huge house. Add to the mix a crisp, sun-drenched interior with plenty of nooks and crannies for storage, and this could be your perfect first-home option.
The c.1925 renovated bungalow includes a single bedroom and bath, plus laminate and ceramic tile flooring. What we like about this tiny house is that it’s low-maintenance, low-cost (tiny house = tiny utility bills), and made of stone, making it durable and meant to last for decades.
A large back deck offers yet another common area during the warmer months, and it overlooks a near-quarter-acre yard situated at the end of a quiet residential street.
From here, a quick three-mile drive will put in Kingston, NY’s downtown neighborhood on the Rondout Creek, full of restaurants, pubs, parks, and boutiques.
Last but not least, the 2018 property taxes listed for this property were $1,861, which is pretty good for Ulster County.
