New Paltz Contemporary, $499,000

Normally when I say a house needs updating, I’m talking about structural issues. But in this case, I think the bones on this place are strong. It’s the mid-80s decor that’s gonna need to go. However, some new tile, new carpet and reupholstering will do the trick. What it’s got going for it is the view. I love the sliding glass doors revealing the mountains beyond. Funny built-in fireplace with rounded corners that must have been high design at some point. I think it could still be cool.

Why do they make it so hard to figure out the taxes? As with so many Ulster County homes, I had to search on Property Shark to find an assessment: $14,787. Oh, that’s why. Jeez. Stats on the jump.
