If you’ve got $19K in cash and $500-per-month, the owner of this Port Jervis Victorian will give the go-ahead to start renovations.
Or, you could just buy it out-right, if you’ve got $70K saved up. Either way, you’ll need even more funds to restore this turn-of-the-century Queen Anne. The good news is, the listing assures us that it’s got good bones and is structurally-sound, so at least you don’t have to fear any Money-Pit-like scenarios with the floor.
The 1,627-square-foot interior still possesses original charms like an antique fireplace (you should assume it doesn’t work), wood floors, plaster walls, and window and doorway trim. Pocket doors – desperately in need of restoration – separate the living room from the formal dining room…
…which is connected to a big country kitchen with built-ins and a pantry.
Look closely, and you can see the potential in the adorable arched front door, which opens to the home’s center hall…
…and, upstairs, there are four spacious bedrooms as well as an unfinished third-floor attic.
Port Jervis is in western Orange County, NY on the east side of the Delaware River. New Jersey is just a hop over the state line, just 90 minutes from NYC. Sure, you could flip this house and probably get at least six figures for it. Or, you could make this your full-time home in the Hudson Valley. After spending so much time fixing it up, you might not want to let it go.
