c. 1900 Colonial
Roseboom, New York
It's a center hall colonial with 2424 square feet of living space. Downstairs is a dedicated library, a nicely finished space with a mock fireplace. Across the hall from it is a living room with an oak floor and low-sided wall paneling. The other floors in the home are plank. Behind it is the former kitchen, which might be better utilized as an office. Behind it, at the end of the hall is a room that would make a wonderful large county kitchen. There is also a full bath and laundry area on the ground floor. At the very end is a storage room that could be made over into additional living space if you felt you needed it.
Upstairs are 3 bedrooms and a very large attic. The attic could be made into 2 good-sized bedrooms if you didn't need the storage space. Two of the bedrooms are large and the third is small. There is a full bathroom upstairs.
The stairway has some striking – and unusual – flamed maple newell posts. The rail and the balusters are cherry. The corner beans in the home have been exposed. The home is serviced by a dug well with a jet pump, and it has oil hot air heat, and an 100 amp electric entrance. It needs a new roof and siding repair as well as other handyman improvements. The basement is partial.
Taxes total $2186 and the County figures its “as is” fair market value at $115405. Yes, it needs work, but at the $20000 they are asking, you will have the means to do it and not have to skimp. It should sell fast at this price as people always like a steal. There are deed covenants to assist in retaining it's old character..Other nearby homes also have these. We have others for sale nearby – from the same estate. The owners hope the exterior work you do will be in keeping with its age and style
If you love old homes and want to bring one back to its original glory, this is one you can certainly afford. Do it over exactly how you want and still be money ahead.
