c.1900 Affordable Home For Sale in Auburn, NY Under $70K


Don’t judge a book by its cover. Imagine this as a painted lady before you step through the front door into a home with loads of natural woodwork and gleaming hardwood floors. I especially love the corner window seat in the front room.

As I have mentioned before, my family spent some time in Auburn as my daughter’s former boyfriend was a pitcher for the Auburn Doubledays. (He was a left-handed pitcher with a 96 mph pitch. He was in the minors for years, but never made it into the majors. He cried when he knew he had to give up baseball to make a sustainable living.) Not only does the town have one architectural gem after another, but it also has a great little baseball stadium.

This 1,608 square foot Colonial in the Southwest side of Auburn has a lot of potential. While the outside of the home needs some paint, the current owner had a new metal roof put on the entire home in 2006. Inside the hardwood floors are in great shape and the layout through the home flows nicely. From the front door you will step into the entry hall with the living room to your right and the gorgeous staircase straight ahead. To the left of the stairs you will find the formal dining room leading into your kitchen. Off the back of the kitchen is a large enclosed porch with washer and dryer hook ups for first floor convenience; as well as a door leading out to your large backyard. Upstairs features your 4 bedrooms all with hardwoods, the full bath, as well as a staircase leading to the full attic with potential to finish for added living space. Don’t miss out on this great opportunity.
