I never stop looking at real estate. It’s like a sick, addicting fetish except you don’t get in trouble at work for looking at Trulia. I often find insanely cool places, exceptional deals, or houses with tons of potential. Since I can’t buy houses as easily as I can buy shoes (luckily), I decided to at least write about these places on here.
Someone needs to buy this house! From the looks of it, it’s really amazing and so cheap! 2400+ sq feet, water access, mature landscaping, hot tub, almost 5 acres, sounds too good to be true (and maybe it is)
It’s cute from the outside, built in 1965, it’s got a little bit of a late mid-century vibe that you could play up. There’s great mature landscaping. Looks like there’s a path down to the river. The property looks quite private, which is great if it’s just off of Route 32. Plus there’s a chicken coop and a hot tub!
The inside isn’t bad at all. The main living space looks nice and open, nice fire place, great floors. It just needs some of the overly plush furniture swapped out for clean modern lines.This bedroom looks huge! Exposed rafters and skylights give the space some architectural interest, which I’m sure is wasted on the children that get to live here. These doors are pretty awesome. Not a big fan of the black and white floor, but you could live with it. The arched window is pretty great too, lots of interesting little details. Here’s another ginormous bedroom! This is is the master bedroom (based on the other pics) You could really have a nice master suite here, just have to get rid of all the baby stuff. PS- Kids ruin everything
The kitchen is definitely lacking, but really isn’t bad. The counter tops look nice, the cabinets and back splash are neutral, the appliances look upgraded, the layout and size are nice. Something just isn’t clicking though. Maybe you could paint the lower cabinets, swap out some light fixtures and make it all work for minimal effort. Best for last! Check out this sun room. In my book, this is drool worthy. That hex floor tile is amazing, the view of the woods and the yard. It’s such a great space, it needs a cow hide rug and a day bed with lots of pillows and I’d live there forever.
For only $200k, this house is either an insane steal and someone needs to buy it immediately, or it’s under a highway and always smells like farts. Someone needs to go check it out!
