$650,000 Homes in New York, Indiana and Texas

This property is located in the town of Blooming Grove, Orange County, N.Y., between the parishes of Chester (less than 3 miles southwest) and Washingtonville (approximately 5 miles northeast). New York City is about 60 miles southeast and is accessible via the Port Jervis Metro-North Railroad, which stops at Salisbury Mills, about 10 minutes away. The area is agricultural and surrounded by protected forest, although you can also find the Legoland New York Resort about eight miles west of this address.

Tax records show that the house dates back to 1800 and has been in operation as a blacksmith's shop since at least 1888, when the owner not only shod horses, but also forged iron machine parts for the mills that processed oatmeal, a leading industry in the region at the time.

Size: 2,107 square feet

Price per square meter: $ 308

Inside: The property has been expanded several times, including living space. But it still has the same room as the original forge and is now used as a second living room with a kitchenette. The sellers, who have lived in the house since the early 1980s, have modernized the mechanics and electrics, installed central air conditioning, laid out the garden and added a heated pool.

Built on a slope, the three-story house has four entrances. The main building is to the side of the building and opens onto a living room with a herringbone brick floor that dates back to when the now closed space was an open porch. A wood stove stands on a field stone wall, next to a stone staircase with a roughly hewn wooden railing. The remaining wall surfaces are wood-paneled or bricked.

Folding wooden doors to the right of the entrance lead to a dining room with a brick floor, exposed beams and a large window with split lights. Behind it is a brick kitchen with butcher's block worktops, a Miele corner oven and a copper hood that hangs over an electric stove.

The stairs lead you to a mezzanine floor overlooking the living room, with slate flooring and walls clad with diagonal planks or clad with bricks. (A wet bar is built into a sideboard.)

From here you enter the master bedroom, which has wooden floors, posts and beams, and a bathroom with a pedestal sink and a combined bath and shower. (This area is also accessed via dining room stairs.) Or, you enter the forge with brick walls, a cathedral ceiling with exposed beams, a wood-burning fireplace, and two exterior doors. The attached kitchenette contains rustic furniture with vintage iron fittings and includes a sink, refrigerator, and two-burner electric stove. There is also a forge bathroom with beamed ceiling and corner shower.

The third level includes the guest bedroom with beveled walls, a dormer window, and an attached bathroom with a sink in a closet and shower.

Outside space: The terrain is rich in vines, shrubs, and flowers, and includes fruit trees, hostas, vinca, and phlox, to name a few. Outside the forge is an enclosed herb garden and a paved terrace. The original Mühlbach is a bit away from the house, which is elevated (the property is in a floodplain). Parking is in a single garage that is connected to the dining room and has an attached laundry room.

This home is in the historic St. Joseph neighborhood, about a mile and a half north of Monument Circle in the heart of downtown and a few blocks north and west of Massachusetts Avenue, a diagonal with a large concentration of shops, restaurants, bars, and markets.

The realtor bought and renovated the then three-part property in 2015 before selling it a year later. The current owner added coffered ceilings and moldings, a wet bar in the basement, and an improved back yard deck. He also sharpened the outer brick.

Size: 2,718 square feet

Price per square meter: $ 230

Inside: Double front doors open to a foyer with exposed brick walls. This surface was discovered behind drywall that was torn down during renovation. The parquet floor is original.

To the right of the entrance is a combined living and dining room with a decorative fireplace with a Victorian mantelpiece and a bay window that sits at the base of the protruding facade. This space is open to the kitchen, which was installed during the 2015 renovation and received some updates, including new appliances and additional cabinets. The custom-made cabinets were built by a local kitchen supplier and have quartz countertops and a niche for a desk. A trio of industrial-style pendant lights hangs over the marble island. A powder room off the kitchen includes a pedestal sink and wicker marble floor tiles.

The master bedroom is above the living room and has a bay window and a cast iron fireplace set into a wall of exposed brick. Original parquet floors lie under the carpet. The room also has a walk-in closet with a window and an en-suite bathroom with double sinks on a vintage wooden cabinet and a walk-in shower. The guest bedroom suite at the back of the house has exposed brick walls and a bathroom with a vintage-style slipper bathtub.

On the light-flooded lower level there is a wet bar and a bedroom and a bathroom with shower.

The house has two laundry rooms, one on the second floor and one in the basement.

Outside space: The back yard is completely fenced in and has a hard surface and artificial turf. The seller added the hot tub and outdoor kitchen. There is no off-street parking.

This home is in a mid-century residential neighborhood in the Windsor Park area, 6 miles northeast of downtown and 4 miles from the University of Texas at Austin. It's up the street from a mall with a popular restaurant called Hank & # 39; s and a mile from 57 acre Bartholomew Park, which has a communal pool. Mueller, a mixed-use development with shopping, green spaces, and other amusements, is just over a mile southwest.

Size: 1,324 square feet

Price per square meter: $ 491

Inside: In contrast to many houses in Austin, which were spruced up on the frantic real estate market without a permit, this one was completely refurbished from the stands three years ago and the roof was replaced. The focus now is on an open living room, dining room and kitchen with wooden floors and built-in lights (without the Sputnik-style ceiling light in the dining area). The kitchen has been outfitted with white cabinets with Silestone countertops (a material made primarily of quartz), including the waterfall surface on the island, which also has a pot filler.

The master bedroom faces the street. Behind a sliding barn door is a private bathroom with a quartz vanity and a tiled open shower. Two further bedrooms share a bathroom with double sinks and a bathtub with partial glass partition and a shower head.

Outside space: The large, fenced garden has concrete and gravel terraces. There is a summer house at the foot of the lawn. There is also a deep front garden with trees and a carport for parking.
