Fixer-Upper Cottage in Sparrowbush, NY, $69K

Sparrowbush Cottage

Dating back to the 1920s, this little Sparrowbush cottage sits in a thoroughly country setting less than two hours’ drive from NYC. 

Get ready to swing a hammer and sling a paintbrush, at the least, in order to get this super-cheap, five-figure property in lower Orange County back into fighting shape. The raw materials look promising, though, like the covered front porch, etched-glass front door, stone fireplace with wood stove insert in the living room, and a surprisingly-large and bright kitchen.

At just 960 square feet in size, this cottage would be best suited as a vacation home or full-time home (cold-weather upgrades likely needed) for a smallish family, but the second floor does provide three bedrooms on the second floor, plus a full bathroom. New paint, upgraded ceiling fans, and spiffed-up wood floors would go along to jazzing up the bedrooms…
