“As-Is” Victorian in Midtown Kingston for $75K

  |  October 19, 2018

It’s a big project, but think of the potentially-huge pay-off in this midtown Kingston fixer-upper…

Van Buren Street, located off Broadway in midtown Kingston, NY, is lined with sweet brick Victorians originally built in the late 19th century. There’s a reason they’re still standing: They’ve got “good bones.” But, while older homes like these were built to last, that doesn’t mean they don’t need some TLC from time to time. Check out the 2,855-square-foot interior with an open mind, and note the original details like stained glass, wood floors, fireplaces, and tin ceilings…

Includes five bedrooms and two full baths. The main floor is gutted and needs everything, but it does come with high ceilings and bay windows.

Surprise! The house includes a finished walk-up attic with four skylights and separate heat and electric. Music studio? Arts/crafts space? Kids’ playroom? Guest loft? Take your pick.

The 1/10th-acre lot is but a postage stamp; however, Kingston’s many attractions lie right past your doorstep, including restaurants, live music/theater/performance, the local YMCA pool, and the scenic downtown Kingston/Rondout Creek neighborhood affectionately known as the Strand.
