This New Berlin Victorian house allows you to own a well-maintained four-bedroom home without going broke in the process.
As affordable residential real estate starts to become but a fond, distant memory in the Hudson Valley and Catskill Mountains, we here at Upstater are turning our attention westward toward Central New York to see what the real estate listings have to offer. Turns out, lots of good stuff for a fraction of the price of comparable homes situated farther east. Those who live in the Hudson Valley/Catskills full-time and dream of owning a home, those looking for an inexpensive part-time home, or those hoping to relocate away from NYC but don’t have a huge budget would be smart to start your home search just a tad closer to the Finger Lakes district these days.
We’re starting off in New Berlin, situated in Chenango County, NY, about two hours due-west of the Hudson River, 25 miles from Cooperstown, and 22 miles north of Oneonta. This house sits right in the center of the village, walking-distance to local amenities, and features a 2,000-square-foot interior in good condition.
Built in the early 1900s, the house has been updated with the roof, furnace, oil tank, water heater, 200-amp electric, siding, most windows, and both bathrooms all less ten years old. Looks like the laminate floors are newer, too, while other original details like trim, molding, and transom doors kept in-tact.
The family room comes with its original hardwood flooring, as well as a wood stove and glass sliders to open onto the deck…
…and, upstairs are the home’s four bedrooms, each with a closet, plus a full bath.
Remember that deck we mentioned earlier? It’s a big one, overlooking the nearly-half-acre yard that comes with a garage/carriage house of its own. And, according to the listing, the 2019 property taxes were around $3,000, a manageable monthly tax bill by most standards.
If you’re feeling priced-out in the Hudson Valley/Catskills, come with us as we head toward the center of the state for some tempting homes for sale, all this week on Upstater.
