This lake front has been owned by the same owners for almost 70 years, and it has never been listed for sale. It’s small inside and needs lots of updating but the mechanical systems work, and it is livable in its current condition. You can use it as a summer retreat or a year-round rental and there are many reasons why this home is a great value. Here are some of them. 1: the lot is level. No huffing and puffing here! 2: the good size lot measures 0.27 acres. 3: the home is connected to city sewers, a huge plus. 4: the setting. This is located on a quiet cul-de-sac with larger, more expensive homes on either side. 5: the lake location is peaceful and quiet. It’s a 5 mile per hour zone where boats slowly glide by. 6: the local, private association owns more than 50 wooded acres for walking, hiking and biking. And in addition to all of these benefits the property is a 5- to 10-minute walk to the train station and bus stop for commuting to NYC! Contact Chris Edwards to schedule an appointment to see this “fixer upper” with tremendous potential. You’ll be pleased with his service. Chris has been boating on Lake Hopatcong for more than 50 years and has sold more than 250 lakefront homes. No one knows Lake Hopatcong like Chris! Note to buyers. The seller requires all cash contracts only. Contracts with a mortgage contingency will not be considered.
