Take a chance on this Poughkeepsie Craftsman bungalow and it could pay off big-time.
You could pull off the winning bid and land yourself a three-bedroom house with oodles of charm and curb appeal, not to mention a big backyard, but well under $100K. In fact, the Hubzu.com listing puts the starting bid at $62K. Not bad, considering the market value of the property is over $144K.
Located a few block west of Poughkeepsie’s city center, the Craftsman bungalow with stucco front porch dates back to 1926. Its 1,720-square-foot interior is awash in Arts & Crafts-era features starting with the wood front stair case, door and window wood trim, wood floors (covered by carpet in some rooms), wainscoting, paneling, and coffered ceilings. The home needs fixing up, including the kitchen.
There are three bedrooms, one full bath plus a half-bath, and an unfinished basement. The bedrooms looks roomy enough and come with closets, but, as with the rest of the house, it needs paint, floor refinishing, and more. It probably won’t surprise you to read that the bathrooms need remodeling, too.
Finally, the .15-acre lot offers lots of parking, plus a grassy backyard and a detached garage. It’s located about a mile north of the Vassar College campus, convenient to main thoroughfares, restaurants/shops/businesses, and public schools.
