Every Friday at 11:00, the Upstater website brings you a selection of properties for rent and sale within three hours north (and a little bit east and/or west) of New York City. This week: what you can get for the price of a decent one-bed in Brownstone Brooklyn.
Let’s say a nice one-bedroom in Park Slope or Carroll Gardens runs you around $430,000 (we know, we know, there are plenty that cost way more than that, and a few that go for less).
Well, for $5,000 less you can get a former one-room schoolhouse in Rhinebeck, NY, that’s been remodeled into a four-bedroom, two-bath house.
Lots of photos and a look at how sweet things get if you go to Ulster County on the jump…
Yeah, okay, the kitchen isn’t the greatest, but the rest of it, we love. It has about an acre-and-a-half of land, 2,500 square feet, a fireplace and a detached two-car garage.
Although Shokan, in Ulster County, tends to have some pricier homes, this 1910 farmhouse seems like a relative bargain to us, considering how beautifully it’s been redone. Or maybe it’s just one of the few upstate New York properties for sale with really good photographs.
For $399,000, the buyer gets three beds, two baths, two fireplaces and 2.25 acres, with what appear to be quite low taxes for that area: $5,027. Does not come with the dog.
This Greek revival in Dover Plains is more of a looker on the outside than the inside in its current state, although it really just needs to get de-club chaired and perhaps a fresh coat of paint, plus, as the listing says, a little TLC.
But man do you get a lot for $425,000: six beds, three-and-a-half baths, three outbuildings (one that’s served as a tiny chapel!), a three-car garage, twin parlors and five fireplaces. Subscribe to This Old House and you’re ready to move.
