Super Cool Silo Home, $163,000

Oh, if only I were cool enough to buy this place. It’s the right price, looks amazing, close to skiing at Belleayre (though there might soon be an enormous development at Belleayre, so maybe that’s not always going to be a plus. This renovated silo home in Highmount, NY was recently profiled in the NY Times, so maybe there’s ample interest, but it’s still on the market, folks. The realtors point out that Delaware County has lower taxes (lower than Ulster and Dutchess, one would assume): $1,376 a year, which seems pretty good to me! Also according to Property Shark, it’s assessed for $88,000. It’s on 7.76 acres, and it sure does look like a fun weekend place. It’s somewhere between two-and-a-half and three hours from Brooklyn. Stats on the jump.
