Kerhonkson Farm House, $145,000
Ah, for the price of a parking spot, you can get a lovingly painted farm house on an acre of land in Kerhonkson. This one caught my eye because of the exterior paint job, though I’d wash over much of the interior colors with hues that don’t evoke a package of Smarties. Yes, the interior needs some love.
There’s only one bathroom at 145 Samsonville Road, which explains some of the price (of course, I really like that bathroom). So does the fact that the MLS lists the condition as “good.” That said, I love those kitchen cabinets and their deco-ish door pulls (are those original, you think? Or from the ’40s?). Nice views, although you’re perched right on the road, sitting on your porch to look at them. Nice expanse of backyard and adorable outbuilding. A good starter upstate home, you think?
