UPSTATE JANE: Car free country house in Woodstock for $175K

  |  April 11, 2012

Located ON the bus line, and within walking distance to town for groceries, entertainment, restaurants, and bars- this home is the ideal weekend retreat for those looking for that car- free weekend home. Sure it isn’t on the train line, but why would you want it to be since the bus is cheaper anyhow and would drop you off in front of your house? There is a 2 stall garage if you wanted to park a beater, or use it for a studio! This could also be an ideal rental property. Also, I have to mention that it is practically ON the golf course for those who are into that.

This cute 1948 cape has 3 generous sized bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, and is a great deal for the location and size of the home. The dining room has built-ins that could be great with some paint, plus a nice screened in sun room for plants and sipping tea. With a bit of freshening up and new appliances, this could be an adorable home. You could spend as much or as little as quick fixes for the updates. Picture painting those kitchen cabinets a sunny yellow or pale country blue with stainless appliances and checkerboard floors.  The living room is move-in ready with the brick fireplace and warm wood paneling. The bathrooms just need new lighting, shower curtains, and linoleum tiles. If I had the extra cash right now  we would be rushing over for a tour. This home had been on the market previously, and is back with a more aggressive price.  My guess is they are serious about selling, and I would reach out to the listing agent for more information if you are interested in car-free escape.  I am guessing with the price reduction, this will go quickly.
