NY Queen Anne $25,000 ~ An Architectural Gem!

In the 1980s, I lived in Cobleskill, a small town not far from Amsterdam. Amsterdam has been depressed for decades, but the city boasts some great Victorian-era architecture, in particular Academy Street, a street much too important to be abandoned by neglect. While it is not documented, some think that #18 Academy St. might have been a design of George Franklin Barber, one of America’s renowned residential architects of the 19th century. (Two other documented Barber homes are just two blocks away). This 1890 Queen Anne has its issues, however, as you can see from the photos, many of its key architectural elements are still intact. The home’s potential is enormous.

“Bring this beautiful Victorian back to its beauty. Total rehab for next cash buyer. Current seller working on roof to complete and is finishing some ongoing cleanup. Large wrap around porch First floor is main living area with large foyer/sitting area. second and third floors are bedrooms and bathrooms. Basement has separate shop area and various other rooms. Fenced in backyard. Needs new gas heating system, hot water heater and all appliances.” As per the realtor.

And take a look at what’s next door!

1874 Upstate NY Italianate Under $40,000

Waverly, New York, is a historic village of about 4,500 people. Its website boasts that the town has “several homes with elaborate architectural stature and historic worth.” Park Place has, fittingly, a small park at the end of street and some great, large older homes. While this 1874 Italianate is run down (apparently the town forced the owners to remove the porch due to safety issues), many of its architectural elements are still intact and the interior is in surprisingly good shape. The front doorway and widow’s peak are gems. Take a close look at the photos for all the small details. Note the lighting fixture in the front hall. Could it be a Virden?

“Massive Victorian boasting charm and elegance, just needs some TLC to bring the shine back. Details include hardwood floors, 11 foot ceilings, open curved staircase and rear stairway as well, pocket doors, some stained glass windows, original millwork, 2 coal fireplaces, and original exterior trim along with amazing turret. Home has a modern Kitchen with appliances and large breakfast bar, 4 bedrooms, Den which could be 5th bedroom, nice lot, and new sidewalks.” As per the realtor.

According to the website, Princess Anne, Maryland, the Dougherty House, c. 1835, c. 1837, located at 30490 Prince William Street, is a combination of vernacular Greek Revival and mid-19th-century cottage architecture.

Hayman House, a c. 1898 Queen Anne with a mix of Victorian and Colonial Revival elements.

806 River Rd, Fort Johnson, NY 13339


7 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 1.9 Acres


NY Fixer on Acreage Under $30,000

The realtor erred on the name of the town. This 1840 brick federal is actually located in Fort Plain, NY, and is surrounded by beautiful farmland and has a great view in the rear. See Google Maps. With a lot of work and cash, this could be a real stunner, a gentleman’s estate! You’ll note that the copper pipes have been removed from the baseboard heating, but consider the bullseye molding, original doors and hardware, lovely staircase and fireplace mantel, and almost two acres of lush grounds.

“Massive 7 bed, 2 bath Fort Plain, NY home for sale. This property is 4,000+ sq ft and sits on 1.9 acres. What a wonderful investment property for a large family! Rooms and interior are spacious. Updating and some work are necessary before move in ready.” As per the realtor.

701 Sassafras St, Millville, NJ 08332


5 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths


South Jersey Fixer Upper $35,000

This circa 1938 Dutch Colonial has plenty of curb appeal for the buyer on a budget. Hardwood floors, French doors, brick fireplace, sunroom, built-ins (a bit too colorful for my taste), and pleasant looking street are its high points. On the down side, in addition to a new roof, the home requires plenty of repairs, and you’ll need to research the neighborhood. Having lived in South Jersey for 25 years, I know that sections of Millville have high crime rates, and the city’s school district is less than desirable. An artist’s community has made a home in downtown Millville, however, there are plenty of shopping opportunities just outside of town and the Jersey Shore is only about 30 minutes away.

“Colonial style home offering 5 beds, 1.5 bath with a spacious living area and detached garage. Some repairs will bring this home back to it’s original splendor. Being sold As Is’, buyer responsible for all inspections.” As per the realtor.

Texas Home Reduced $10,000

This 1936 Craftsman bungalow in Electra, Texas, under $40,000 could be a real beauty. I love the brick street. While it is situated in a residential/commercial area, surrounded by a virtual ghost town (see Google Maps), the exterior of the bungalow is just gorgeous! The interior boasts hardwood floors, bay windows, French doors, tiled fireplace, updated kitchen, and (forgive me shiplap snobs), Joanna Gaines’ – not mine – dearly beloved shiplap.

“Lots of space in this two story country home! Formal dining room. Bedroom and full bath downstairs. Spacious three bedrooms and full bath upstairs. Nice large porch out front. Don’t miss out!” As per the realtor.

1870 Ohio Under $50,000 ~ Amazing Original Woodwork & Lighting Fixtures

I don’t know why this magnificent home is priced so low, but I’d think about relocating to Ohio for this one! Located on a street of beautiful, well-kept older homes, #651 has so much going for the lover of old houses. A great front porch, second-floor sleeping porch, gingerbread, bay windows, transoms, some original lighting fixtures, gorgeous staircase and a surprisingly updated kitchen. The realtor’s description details even more amazing features. And take a look at Google Maps. Next door is a sister house. It is still charming, but does not compare to #651 as much of its original character has been paired down.

“Vintage character! This Victorian home built in 1870 has great potential! Large rooms, high ceilings, hardwood floors, decorative wood moldings, fireplace, big windows, covered front porch, fenced back yard, one car detached garage plus an updated kitchen! 9 rooms, 5 bedrooms with one on main level, full bath and large walk-in closet upstairs and main level laundry in kitchen. Call today to see this spacious home! Lots of potential! Cash, conventional or rehab loans only.” As per the realtor.
