Stone Ridge Stone House, $200,000 (and counting down)

Ah, an actual house made of the stuff for which the town is named! This listing— a three-bedroom built in 1756 — dares to use the phrase “once beautiful” (referring to the gardens), so you know some of the reason behind the price. The rest of the reason: it’s on very busy 209, fairly close to the road. It’s obviously in need of some serious love (including a nice interior paint job), but, man, what a beauty. Those built-ins! The doors! That incredible hearth. Cute little shed in the back. For the handy and hearty and true lovers of old homes, this must be tempting. I just think I’d feel so happy every time I pulled in the driveway. It’s right next door to a community college — how great if you could get a job there and have a five-second commute! The price has already been reduced by almost $80,000! Stats on the jump.
