Saugerties Village Victorian, $189,000

If you’re looking to move close to the Village of Saugerties, with its great vintage shops and yummy restaurants, you’ll certainly have your pick of sweet old properties for reasonable amounts. This is my dream price, if not my dream house. Lots of good stuff, though the comparison to SoHo properties gets undermined by those low ceilings. It has a small, sort of sad yard, but that part is easily spruced up. Nice kitchen, small–around 1,500 square feet–but very reasonable for a small family. Nicely appointed — not overly modernized nor weighted down with detail, and close to the water. Taxes seem very high to me in Saugerties: $4,000 for this modest place. Does it have fantastic schools or something? Stats on the jump.

  1. This is a nice walkable location, right down the street from the almost completed Diamond Mills hotel and conference center.

  2. With a house in Saugerties you most likely would not be working in the City and therefore would not have to be paying your NYC taxes, which, by the way you have to pay whether you rent or own. That is one reason property taxes are low in the City, everyone pays. Whether that is fair or not I can see it either way.
    If it is a second home then I would assume if you could afford the home you could afford the taxes. 4K sounds reasonable to me. You have to make the town function somehow.
