Ten country acres surround this Patterson stone cottage in need of an update, situated just over an hour’s drive from NYC.
This week on Upstater, we delve into the real estate listings to answer the question, is it possible to find an affordable Hudson Valley home on the east side of the Hudson River? Turns out, you can, especially if you’re willing to take over the mortgage for a home in pre-foreclosure and do a little renovating work.
Sturdy and ready for a new owner, the c.1945, three-bedroom home consists of a distinctive stone foundation topped by clapboard siding, which, by themselves, are charming enough. Throw in some circular windows and we are won-over.
And, we’re won-over once more when we step inside the living room thanks to a stone wall and fireplace. There’s plenty of potential in the adjoining kitchen, too, which is ready for an overhaul.
The bedrooms could use their own polish and updates, including some de-carpeting/floor refinishing in the process, but they certainly seem roomy enough and come with built-ins and lots of natural light…
…and you’ll find all the natural light you crave when you head back outside to toddle around the ten acres that surround this 1,824-square-foot house. One of your next door neighbors will be Thunder Ridge Ski Area, and another is the NY/CT border just minutes away. Need to commute? The Patterson Metro-North is a five-minutes’ drive from here.
