First-time homebuyers, take note: Here’s a farmhouse in West Park, 15 minutes south of Kingston in Ulster County, less than a mile from the shores of the Hudson River, for less than $200,000. If you’re not familiar with the area, it’s pretty and countrified, and there are places to play outside (Black Creek, Shaupaneak Ridge, Esopus Meadows, Franny Reese Park in Highland, the Walkway  over the Hudson, etc.) but it’s also close to civilization (Kingston, New Paltz, Poughkeepsie). The c.1920 farmhouse with updates is on nearly a full acre of land. The interior is a-okay with us. It’s a blank canvas, essentially. And finally, the taxes won’t stop your heart, unlike a lot of the properties in and around Kingston.
