Upstate Jane: Unbelievable Home in Woodstock with HUGE workspace….299K and falling….

Okay, I admit…I toured this gorgeous home before making my final button push on a home across the street basically…but when I saw the asking price falling like sweet rain, I admit, I would have taken the bait. This house is gorgeous. It is in Woodstock, has mountain views, a gentleman farm neighbor, and manicured lawns. It has an amazing studio/workspace, heated and with a loo. There is so much potential in this space, the only thing that deterred us before was the price tag. It just dropped 50K.  Having toured it, I will tell you it is worth the price tag now. The upstairs is a bit of a “free for all”. It needs some proper walls and a new bathroom put in. It is completely functional and gorgeous, just not for everyone. The kitchen needs a tiny bit of work, but is mostly done perfectly alone with the rest of the main house. The adjacent work area could house a gorgeous master suite, followed above by a HUGE studio workspace. All of this for 299K or less, and IN Woodstock proper, plus you would be my neighbor??!!

  1. It now seems to be off the market….

    • Yes, I noticed unfortunately the other day. When I wrote this it was still on the market, but it wasn’t posted on the site until now.
      I was hoping someone could get in there quickly and take advantage!

  2. Technically its status is “under contract.” In the past this was a sure sign of a done deal, but in today’s financial climate & times of buyer/seller uncertainties — ya never know!

    • That is true, I have been an audience to many stories from realtor friends who have had their listings almost to closing when they crumble within the last year and a half. In any case, multiple times have occurred where they have a contract that is backed out on. This is a sweetie pie house with lot’s of potential, and it is priced right- so it is no surprise that when they lowered the price 50K it was snatched up quickly. I was hoping one of you readers would have been the lucky ones!
