Location: Piermont, New York
Don’t judge a book by its cover, because this two-bedroom, two-bath midcentury gem about 40 minutes north of Manhattan could be a gorgeous home with a bit of sweat equity. The 1950s house overlooks the Hudson River and is a 10 minute stroll to the town of Piermont, a 2,500-person village with a pier and walkable downtown.
The house was partially gutted and is being sold as is, but lots of original details remain. Measuring 1,755 square feet, five large transom windows face the river and allow for plenty of light in the living room and dining room.
Exotic cherry and teak woodwork are enhanced by beamed ceilings, and built-in shelving looks period appropriate. You’ll have to revamp the kitchen and bathrooms—they look like a construction site currently—but we love the large wood burning fireplace on the main floor and the second fireplace in the walkout basement.
The property is set on 1.46 wooded acres and also boasts a covered patio and greenhouse.
