Pine Plains Farmhouse, $199,000
Unsolicited real estate tip: take your exterior photos at twilight with the lights on. Doesn’t that make this Gallatin farmhouse look so inviting? And take the interior photos when sunlight is streaming in, as they’ve done here. You can tell this is one of those places that’s been added on to bit by bit since it was built in 1840. At this point, it has four beds, one-and-a-half baths, more than 2,700 square feet, nice views. And over two-and-a-half acres. Feels like a good deal, though I wonder if it feels rambling inside, the way many of these places that started off tiny and grew gradually often do. Has a couple of outbuildings, always a plus in my book. Perhaps guests could stay in the electrified garden shed? Stats on the jump.
