If you can commit to providing some TLC, this Poughquag farmhouse could be a good – and affordable – fit.

Who says you need a gigantic house to be happy? This week on Upstater, we’ve been delving into the listings in search of small yet comfy houses for sale in the Hudson Valley. We were delighted in what we found, like a mini-Craftsman in Wallkill, a fixed-up cottage in the western Catskills, and the most organized cottage in Columbia County, and, while this 1950s Cape Cod might not be the most glamorous of the small houses on-the-market, it certainly has potential to be! It even comes with a little red barn/garage on the half-acre property.

Meanwhile, the 960-square-foot home’s interior includes hardwood floors, a living room wood stove, a surprisingly-large and functional kitchen…

…and four bedrooms, one on the ground floor and three upstairs. Three of them have hardwood floors, too, but could use some new baseboards…

…and perhaps a slightly less mono-chromatic color scheme.

Back outside, you’ll have room for gardening and outdoor recreation on the tree-covered property, situated just a few miles southeast of Poughkeepsie. Old stone walls surround the lot, and the brick patio out back comes with a built-in firepit for cozy hang-outs in front of the crackling flames, under the twinkling stars.
