When a home is dubbed a “fixer-upper,” it’s usually because it has a lot of potential, but it’s outdated and needs some work. A fixer-upper is also usually on the market for much less than other homes in the area.
Unfortunately, in the Hamptons, that can still mean the house is over $500,000.
This East Hampton home on 10 Hawthorne Street could really be something great after a renovation. At 1,600-square-feet with four bedrooms and two bathrooms, it’s a bit small, but it could work well as a small family home or as a summer home. The asking price is $649,000.
Built in 1989, the home is on a quiet street, making it almost ideal for summer folks. Though, it’s not on the water. But it’s only a short drive or bike ride from the beach, so there’s still some hope as far as location is concerned.
The living room has the cathedral ceilings, fireplace, and skylights already in place. The opening into the dining room and kitchen give it an open feel, so it’s kind of got that open floor plan vibe to it, but there’s still some distance between the living and dining spaces.
There are some recent upgrades that the home has gone through, such as a new roof, water pump, and water filtration system. These updates will make the new homeowner’s updates much simpler, as these are all structural, and those kind of “hidden” updates that are necessary, but not as fun as the new floors in the living room or the new cabinets in the kitchen.
Outside, there’s a large deck off the kitchen, outdoor shower, and room for a pool.
