This rough-around-the-edges Middletown Craftsman could be an absolute stunner with the right renovation. 

If you’ve got an imagination and the skill (or means to pay for a person who has the skill) to renovate an older home, you’re going to love this week’s offerings on Upstater. We’re serving up our favorite fixer-upper properties from the Hudson Valley and Catskills real estate listings, and, oh boy, do we have a bumper crop for you. First up: a 1930s Arts-and-Crafts bungalow, ready for renovation.

From the appealing four-point windows to the interior trim and hardwood floors, the 1,770-square-foot house comes with lots of its originals, like the transom front door and staircase. Its rooms are big and breezy, even if it needs just about everything, including a new heating system since the previous oil tank was recently removed…

…as well as a full kitchen and, of course, a whole-lotta new paint.

We know it’s not everyone’s cup of tea, but we love this vintage bathroom with turquoise tiling…

The property is over an acre in size, situated in Orange County, NY, about twenty miles west of the city of Newburgh and the Hudson River.
