It’s Five-Figure Friday, and today we’re headed to Wurtsboro Hills, a kinda sleepy little hamlet in the southern part of Sullivan County that used to bustle with about 100 former summer bungalows from the late 1920s to the mid-1970s.
Now, most of those bungalows have been converted to year-round homes, like this two-bed, one-bath, 568-square-foot Lilliputian locale.
The living room is a good size. The hardwood floors in here look good, but the walls could use some updating. That woodstove is probably a powerhouse, cranking out heat to supplement the house’s propane-fueled forced-air unit.
There’s a white Dutch door leading into the kitchen from here.
The new owner might want to rethink the layout and decor of the kitchen, but there’s room for someone with a good imagination.
A small dining area is well-lit by windows at the other end of the kitchen.
The first bedroom could use a good scraping to rid itself of that popcorn ceiling. But the angles and sunlight here are attractive.
The bathroom here is also a laundry room.
The second bedroom is a nice size, with a nice floor, but also needs some repairs to the trim in the room, particularly along the ceiling, and updated paint.
The deck, with a locking gate, doesn’t seem to need much work at all.
The house is on a corner lot that measures under a quarter-acre, but there are hiking trails nearby, and it’s not far to Route 17/I-86. It’s a 15-minute drive to the Resorts World Catskills casino and the Kartrite water park, and five minutes to the village of Wurtsboro, which has a grocery store, pharmacies, gas stations, and some of the cutest shops around, like the Crystal Connection and Canal Towne Emporium.
