A Charming Foreclosure

The New York Times had a series of articles this weekend about the growing number of foreclosures in the region. Westchester evidently has fewer foreclosures than the rest of the tri-state area—and, compared to most of the area, northern Westchester has hardly been touched by this epidemic. But there are definitely foreclosures around. One of the nicest is this lovely 1850 colonial in Somers. The 3 bedroom house is pretty small at 1,200 square feet, but it is fully-loaded with classic charm and appears to be in good shape. The taxes are $7,797, and the asking price has been reduced from $285,700. The home is located on a relatively mellow stretch of Route 202 also called Mill Street (a complication that evidently makes Google unable to correctly map it). Not bad at all for the money. $257,000

This is really sweet. I can totally see fixing it up. The price is amazing, but the taxes are darn high for 1200 square feet on a small lot.
