Who wouldn’t mind owning a retro ranch mere minutes from the ski runs of the White Mountains—for less than $100,000? This midcentury modern gem in Lisbon, NH, is just that, offering a relatively small footprint but a pretty hefty return on investment.

Situated 25 minutes from Franconia Notch State Park, Cannon Mountain Ski Resort, and other beautiful spots, the 1963 abode needs new owners to bring its ’60s charm back to life. Though small, the home makes space for a sizable living room, a cozy kitchen, two bedrooms, a dining area, a full bathroom, and a back deck.

The flat-roofed cottage is also situated on the banks of the Ammonoosuc River—the backyard has 145 feet of water frontage. Whether you use it as a vacation home, rental property, or year-round digs, the house is indeed a groovy little fixer-upper. A few cosmetic touches and it’ll be good as new.
