For those turn-key bargains, head northwest to Chenango County, NY and this Norwich Victorian home…plus something extra.
The city of Norwich, NY is situated about 2.5 hours west of the Hudson River, and about two hours east of the Finger Lakes. New York State’s only Great Lake, Lake Ontario, is a hair closer at just under two hours, so you can take your pick of day-trips from this inexpensive property.
For under $90K, the turn-of-the-century Victorian has a lot to offer, including a 2,320-square-foot interior that’s in decent condition. The original hardwood floors have managed to stand the test of time while aging gracefully…
…and, while some aspects of the house could use some fresh and chic updating (like some of the wallpaper, the kitchen fixtures and cabinetry, and the upstairs carpeting), this three-bedroom house is not even remotely the dilapidated shambles you’d expect given its five-figure listing price.
In addition to the original floors, trim, and moldings, the interior also comes with a stained glass window here and there.
Here’s what makes this home a bona-fide bargain, though: The second floors includes its own mother-in-law apartment with a separate entrance. Imagine how cute it would be with a new coat of paint, light figures, and carpeting.
Finally, get that big backyard you’ve always wanted, over a quarter-acre in size, with a garage/carriage house included.
The house is located walking-distance from Norwich’s schools, grocery store, shops, and restaurants.
