Sometimes it seems like antique Colonials are a dime a dozen in New England—and maybe they are. But most of those Colonials don’t hit the market for just under $200,000.

This one for sale in Kingston, New Hampshire, asks $199,900. The catch, of course, is that it needs major updating. Built in 1900, the home looks to have been most recently renovated in the ’70s (hello, shag carpets and wood paneling). A couple of fixer-uppers could restore this place to its former antique glory, or create a more modern interpretation of its century-old bones.

While a lot of work is required to bring the place up to snuff, commuting will prove to be less onerous. The house is situated mere minutes from Route 125, which leads to I-95, I-495, and other major commuting roads that shoot out in all directions.
