Claverack Saltbox, $199,000

The original house — the good stuff — is from 1860. A century later, it seems, some updates were made, and there are a few choices that I think need reversing: the cabinets in the kitchen, those closet doors in the bedroom, that brick facing behind the woodstove. But none of that would deter me if a saltbox in a rural setting (a rural setting close to the train, that is) is what I was after. Although it seems to be surrounded by farmland, 6 Courts Lane sits on only half an acre. It has three beds, three baths and 2,260 square feet. I love the original beams and the vaulted ceiling. I fear it might not be country enough for some upstate house hunters, but if you’re looking to walk into “town,” this’ll work for you. Taxes: around $4,000.

  1. Good stuff indeed, and nothing a little whitewash won’t cure.
