Victorian Farmhouse, Coxsackie, $349,900

We admit, we were fooled by this Victorian farmhouse. From a distance, it looks like the Real Deal. However, in reality, this house is relatively new, built in 1997. Regardless, it’s a nice house, and it’s got a lot going for it, especially on the outside: It’s on three very bucolic acres, there’s a backyard gazebo, and an it’s got an inviting in-ground swimming pool.

Not that we have a beef with the inside. Although, as we mentioned in the Second Empire Victorian post from yesterday, we have a slight aversion to floral wallpaper. Maybe it’s a personal preference. So we turn to you, the Upstater audience, with this completely Earth-shattering, potentially game-changing, controversial question: What are your thoughts on floral wallpaper?

Okay, okay. Enough about the wallpaper. Let’s talk about the location. It’s not in the village of Coxsackie but about five miles to the west of it. It’s a rural landscape on Route 51, and the house is surrounded by farm land. And for those interested, it’s about five miles away from the Correctional Facility.

All in all, it’s a pretty property surrounded by lovely views of the Catskill and Berkshire Mountains on the outside and nice features on the inside, including a smart kitchen, claw foot tub in the master bath, big windows in the living spaces, French doors, hardwood floors, and a finished basement.
