It seems the photographer may have caught the last occupants on move-out day; that seems to be a moving van in the photo of the garage, and the rooms have not been tidied up yet. In any case, this one-family brick house at 521 Crown Street between Kingston and Albany has plenty of original detail and a detached garage with room for two cars as well as a yard, judging from the PropertyShark map. There’s no telling what condition the mechanicals, bathrooms and kitchen are in, based on the listing, although a sliver of contemporary cabinets is visible in the corner of one photo. The property is offered by Massada, which is known for renovating and flipping housing that otherwise wouldn’t qualify for a conventional mortgage, although that does not seem to be the case here. Do you think $825,000 sounds reasonable for the location and close to 2,500 square feet?

Here the developers have gutted a small one-family and turned it into three small open-plan apartments, each with two bedrooms. (The listing says there’s an owner’s duplex, but going by the floor plan, it seems to be referring to the cellar.) Some charm still remains in the form of beautiful fireplaces and the exterior, which has […]
