Fixer-upper though it may be, this Pine Hill farmhouse comes with a boatload of promise…plus a location close to Catskills attractions. 

Put on your rose-colored glasses and imagine what could be with this three-bedroom, 1,209-square-foot home, built in 1855. These days, it’s pretty rough around the edges and in need of a big-time remodel. Start with the distinctive wrap-around porch, overlooking old-growth trees on the bucolic .64-acre property…

…and continuing the sprucing on the first floor with original floors, trim, and hardware.

Meanwhile, the kitchen and dining room are going to need just about everything, appliances, new wallpaper, and flooring included.

In spite of damage, cute features pop out to us, like the bay windows and built-ins…

…and the three bedrooms plus one full bath need a-whole-lotta love, as well.

Whatever you do, though, don’t get rid of the darling green shudders on the windows…

…or the cute little Gothic Carpenter-style shed in the yard. Storage seems like a missed opportunity; maybe it can be a small studio.
