Use Your Imagination on this Philmont Fixer-Upper, $85K

  |  April 16, 2021

It’s currently a shell of its former self, but this Philmont farmhouse has solid bones, situated eight miles from the center of Hudson, NY. 

In spite of its gutted state, work has clearly already begun on the 1,692-square-foot interior, so it’s not like you’ll be starting from scratch, really. Yes, there’s work to be done, and it’s a lot, but for those with funds or happen to be handy with a hammer and saw, it could be a worthy investment.

The house was originally in the 1860s and sits right in the center of Philmont village, about eight miles east of one of the Hudson Valley’s most popular destinations, the city of Hudson. It’s a sweet location, walking-distance to High Falls Conservation Area – home to the county’s highest waterfall – and it’s convenient to the Taconic State Parkway.

In terms of the interior, what you see is what you get, but the framing and support work has already been done. You’ll still need to frame the individual rooms, though. Here’s the second floor…
