Talk about POTENTIAL! This cozy cabin, set on 1.7 acres, is in an ideal LOCATION for an upstate retreat home - just minutes to Plattekill for skiing and mountain biking, close to Roxbury and Margaretville for farmer's markets, antiques, restaurants/breweries/distilleries and seasonal events - it could be a true base camp for all your year-round adventures. And the views of distant Cator-Roundtop Mountain are delightful. The house is set back from the quiet town-maintained road, and the lot features an expansive, level lawn section, as well as a portion with berry bushes, mature trees, and possibly trails to re-define.
Remember our key themes of POTENTIAL and LOCATION. The house itself does need work.
On the plus side, the space is inviting with natural light streaming in from the sliding doors which open out to the front, East facing deck (which needs significant repair or replacement, as well as slider door). The main living space combines the kitchen and living areas, and is tied together by the focal point fireplace. The two bedrooms already have recent laminate floors in place, and the kitchen . On the minus side, the concrete block foundation does need comprehensive repair (seller has local contractor estimate of $14k to comprehensively repair block foundation, install rat-slab sloping concrete to sump in crawl space, fill and grade ground surrounding the foundation, and demo/remove deck), and the subfloor in the kitchen and living room likely needs replacement. Whether you see this as a flip opportunity, or a chance to put your own vision of weekend/vacation or full-time living into action, think of the home as a blank canvas!
