This Red Hook cottage might be 189 years old, but its sunny interior has been restored with a blend of new and antique features.

Refinished plank floors adorn the first floor portion of the 1,152-square-foot interior, making its affordable listing price of $219,999 all the more attractive. In fact, overall, the house – along with its three bedrooms and 1.5 baths – is in good condition…

…with room enough for a full formal dining room with exposed support beams and built-in shelves.

According to the listing, however, the kitchen could use more updating, including the original brick cooking fireplace that requires restoration, too. Perhaps the kitchen could be expanded into the large dining room to make it more home-chef-friendly…

…but we still appreciate its little antique touches here and there, like paneled walls, wood trim, and the staircase to the second floor…

…which needs new flooring to match the restored floors downstairs.

We love the charming built-ins in the bedroom, though…

…as well as the new stone floors in the enclosed porch downstairs.
