The Carmel Six: Lake Front(ish) Properties Under $200,000

  |  March 30, 2012

Sometimes, five Town of the Week property posts just isn’t enough, especially when we’re dealing with a jackpot like Carmel. So, as promised in our Carmel Town of the Week post on Monday, here are six lovely properties, most located in a lakefront community, that go just as easy on the wallet as the eyeballs:

Located on Lake Carmel, this house comes with lake rights and the owner could be eligible for a STAR exemption on the taxes. Second floor master suite has its own deck.

21 Noonan Drive, Carmel (Century 21 V.J.F. Realty) GMAP
Asking Price: $199,000
Beds: 2
Baths: 2
Square Feet: 1395
Year Built: 1945
Land: .16 acres
Taxes: $8125 ($6861 w/STAR)
Features: Access to Lake Carmel

Another one on Lake Carmel. Two wood stoves, enclosed porch, nice landscaping in the tiny yard (but close to the lake!).

11 East Croton, Carmel (RE/MAX) GMAP
Asking Price: $175,000
Beds: 3
Baths: 1
Square Feet: 1584
Year Built: 1938
Land: .18 acres
Taxes: $9400
Features: Stream in the backyard.

An attached apartment with its own separate access could help with the mortgage payment. Not on Palmer Lake, but nearby. Google Map streetview shows that it’s pretty well shielded with trees from Route 52, which looks like main drag.

340 Route 52, Carmel (Houlihan Lawrence) GMAP
Asking Price: $175,000
Beds: 4
Baths: 2
Square Feet: 1976
Year Built: 1960
Land: .7 acres
Taxes: $9917
Features: Hardwood floors, new roof

Lake Carmel again! This one is a short sale. It’s a teeny 1 bedroom/1 bath cottage, but it’s been remodeled, it’s got a nice kitchen, a yard, and the listing hints at the possibility of adding on.

8 Larchmont Road, Carmel (Coldwell Banker) GMAP
Asking Price: $170,000
Beds: 1
Baths: 1
Square Feet: 700
Year Built: 1940
Land: .55 acres
Taxes: $6867 ($5628 w/STAR tax exemption)
Features: Storage shed, full attic, deck

Adorable with a nice interior, but almost no yard or privacy whatsoever. But it’s on Lake Carmel! Another STAR-eligible possibility.

30 Ashburton Road, Carmel (RE/MAX) GMAP
Asking Price: $179,900
Beds: 3
Baths: 1
Square Feet: 1200
Year Built: 1945
Land: .09 acres
Taxes: $7084 ($5820 w/STAR)
Features: Storage shed, granite kitchen

Mahopac is one of two large hamlets in the town of Carmel (Carmel being the other). Adirondack-style log cabin is on Kirk Lake, and Lake Mahopac is on the other side. It’s on over an acre (the largest lot of the six we’ve looked at here). Listing suggests that it may need some tweaks in order to function as a year-round residence, but it sure is charmingly rustic!

19 Lillian Road, Carmel (Mahopac) (Frances Billingsley Realty) GMAP
Asking Price: $149,999
Beds: 2
Baths: 1
Square Feet: 949
Year Built: 1940
Land: 1.2 acres
Taxes: $5,248
Features: Screened-in porch, waterfront, privacy
