Scrollwork Romance: A Dreamy Fixer-Upper For $95K in Cairo
Does the Hudson housing market seem way too expensive? Take a look at Cairo and its surrounding towns across the Hudson River. Though Cairo shares its spelling with the capital city of Egypt, the Greene County locals pronounce it CARE-oh. This dreamy old house in nearby Purling recently underwent a $20K price drop and is just a 20-minute drive from the Hudson Amtrak station.
The porch is a old-fashioned beauty, and I feel like you could have some fun with the retro sun room off the back of the house.
The property's 1.64 acres lie adjacent to Shingle Kill Creek, which is straight-up beautiful.
I know some people like a country house that's totally isolated from all neighbors, but personally, I feel safer when I can see the neighbor's place from the kitchen window. While we're in the kitchen, it's also worth noting that Cairo is home to the most glorious supermarket for miles around.
We haven't seen this place in person, but at this price, it must need some TLC. For more info, check out the listing on Berkshire Hathaway HomeService.
