Kingston Victorian, $329,900

I concentrated my search for Kingston property on places near Forsyth Park, a very sweet city park with a great playground and a lovely little nature center. Well, there wasn’t much under $400,000, unless you want a place on a very busy intersection or a late 60s ranch house, and — not to sound too snobby — that’s not exactly our cup of tea.

This Victorian-era house, however, piqued our interest. Four beds, two and a half baths, a quarter of a an acre city lot, the cutest little outbuilding. Needs some different decor, but the kitchen looks pretty nice and I love the arch above the stairway. This is a pad for the permanent NYC escapee, or other folks looking for a full-time residence in Kingston, N.Y. It’s been on the market almost a year, and has already had one $15,000 price cut. I’d take a few thou off for the vinyl siding alone. Stats on the jump.
