If you don’t mind some renovating, this east-side Peekskill cottage comes with a promising interior and a big backyard.

Affordability is still a possibility, even in the lower Hudson Valley…just so long as an “as-is” designation doesn’t scare you away. This two-bedroom Colonial cutie in Peekskill could use a full glow-up, from its little front porch…

…to its wood paneling and shag carpeting. We would, however, consider keeping the hallway wallpaper just for a dash of retro fun.

The 1,136-square-foot space includes a first-floor living/dining room and kitchen…

…which needs new cabinetry, counters, and appliances, as well as a new layout if this one doesn’t work for you.

See what we mean about the wallpaper? Admit it; you’re starting to fall in love, too.

In addition to two bedrooms and a full bath, there’s a third-floor walk-up attic suitable for storage…

…and, one of the bedrooms includes an attached sitting/massive walk-in closet/home office. Despite needing a serious de-linoleum-ing and a new coat of paint, it’s our favorite part of the house…

…but, with some clean-up and plantings, the backyard could give it a run for its money. You’ve already updated the interior. Might as well build a patio, too.

The .14-acre property is less than a mile from the center of Peekskill city, and about a mile-and-a-half from the Peekskill Metro-North station.
