Historic Hudson Valley Craftsman for Under $100K

The listing price for this Point Peter Mountain cottage is not a typo. It’s actually $95,000!

Known as The Mountain House, this 1920s cottage sits on the base of a mountain in Port Jervis, NY. Its visible location and distinctive cedar-shake siding offers curb appeal galore, and, if you love the outdoorsy stuff, this is exactly where you want to be. Bike/run/walk the local rail trail, enjoy acres of parkland, or check out the nearby Delaware River.

Take note, though: This charming cottage needs work. Some of that work has been done already, as evidenced by the Mountain House’s Facebook page with photos of new wood siding, aluminum trough sink and shower, updated kitchen, restored plank floors, and new electric and plumbing…

…but, get ready to finish the walls, floors, windows, and everything else on the second floor.
